When children play undressing

It may be the middle of winter, but many babies will not care, they will have the irrepressible desire to take off their shoes, socks ..., and suck their feet if they feel like it. What fun is this about getting naked and playing at being independent?

"Mom, I'm older." Your baby imitates what the grown-ups do and the success of the achievement is in repeating it many times, on time or out of time, cold or hot, whether you are at home or not. Your child has discovered the fun of taking off his clothes, it is like playing dress-up, it is attractive to suck on the sock that he has just taken off. Clothes and shoes become another toy for our little ones. Clothes don't necessarily have to bother him for him to try to get rid of them.

A mother asked on the forums if this attitude of her son was normal, her little one, almost two years old, would end up taking off all his clothes and walking around the house naked, what skill! Although it is a real drudgery to put socks and clothes on him again or again, or to warn him that this is not done, this concern of ours is part of his fun: the baby takes off and you put on, he pulls and you pick up, he wants That you bathe him and take off his clothes, he loves those huge shoes that he contemplates in your room and corners his. Of course, this behavior and concern is not only normal, it is also good. Children learn to be autonomous, especially in these small daily tasks. Many times, parents are the ones who put a brake on the interest of our child because they do not know how to do it well, or because we do not believe in their abilities, to prevent them from hurting themselves or catching a cold, or because we are faster, but these small acts Independence enhance their abilities and dexterity, in addition to increasing their self-esteem by being able to modify their social and physical environment. When he's a little older, not only will he take off his clothes and shoes, he will also want to dress himself and choose his clothes. Patro Gabaldon. Editor of our site
