She won't even put on her own velcro shoes, by herself, until just recently.
She won't put her socks on cause she's got this thing with them being "funny"...so if they don't sit just right on her feet then all hell breaks loose!
How do you go about making them more independent with those kinds of things?
I've sat here and showed her how to put one sock on, going slowly and explaining what you have to do. So I handed her the other one and said "you try with this side, and I'm right here to help you."......she freaked out, ran away upset and just wanted me to put it on.
Will someone please give me a little advice and what are your 4 year old's capable of doing right now?

You are the Mom & that's why you are there to care for her, that's your job. She is still too young to care for herself. Socks are hard for adults to put on sometimes. You should read the lyrics "Cat Stevens Cat's In The Cradle" The end of the song says:
I've long since retired, my son's moved away I called him up just the other day I said I'd like to see you if you don't mind He said I'd love to dad, if I could find the time You see my new job's a hassle, and the kids have the flu But it's sure nice talking to you dad It's been sure nice talking to you And as I hung up the phone, it occurred to me He'd grown up just like me My boy was just like me Soon
She won't Need you at all so appreciate the time you have now.
