So I have constantly focused on my son's academic skills and I let the life skills fall by the waist side. I know it is my fault and I take responsibility for it. My son is 9 and is reading on a 6 year old level. He adds and subtracts double digit numbers. He is verbal but not on the level he should be for his age. He does not have a behaviour problem but he is a spoiled brat. My fault too, sorry. :-) He is my only child.
Anyway he does not bathe himself, wipe himself after a bowel movement or ties his shoes. His p.t. is working on teaching him how to tie his shoes. He does put on his pants and shirts on his own but he does not button them.
My son is a visual learner. Does anyone know of any books or dvds that teach life skills? What did you guys do to teach your children life skills.
All suggestions are appreciated.
