  • My almost 4 year old will, but sometimes she gets her shirt inside out or she picks out some really interesting outfits so I monitor it:)

  • 2 1/2 with minimal help and on their own completely by 3 with just help with socks and shoes. Except my youngest dd who could do it all. She's been doing her own buttons since she was 3 1/2, putting her own socks and shoes on since she was 2. the only thing she can't do at 4 1/2 is zip her coat but she tries.

  • My daughter is 2 1/2 and won't let me help her anymore. Everything is "I do it, I do it" I of course have to pick her clothes and help her with her shoes. Sometimes after waking in the morning, she comes into my room with like 3 outfits on looking like a homeless child...too funny. She is by far more fond of taking her clothes off though!

  • Oh my gosh my daughter started at 2 I would dress her and she was so angry with what I choose she would go back up to her room and change. So I just asked her do you want this or that and then let her do it. OY what a pain.
