Day 2

Let them pick their outfits


Independence leads to confidence. Allowing your little ones to practice picking out their clothes and getting dressed alone is a great way to build those self-confidence skills. If you want to have some coordination in their outfits—you pick out the bottoms and let them choose between 3 shirts, socks, and underwear. Remember to praise efforts “WOW! You picked that out all by yourself. I’m proud of you for trying so hard to do things on your own.”

Community Connection

You never know when you might need support from your school’s Family Resource and Youth Services Center (FRYSC). Today we challenge you to send a quick email to your FRYSC introducing yourself. Let them know if you have clothes, learning materials or other supplies to donate or if you have personal needs they might be able to address.
