Like most 3yo, mine MUST do everything by himself. And if he can't, he will through a fit. Typical, I'm sure.
I have no problem letting him dress himself, buckle his car-seat, etc.
But with him being a boy, and ruff, I don't like to let him work the DVD player (he does at grandmas) or put toothpaste on his toothbrush. (huge mess)
I was just wondering what kind of stuff the rest of you do and don't let your preschooler do.

Children learn by doing. Yes, there will be plenty of messes, but they can always get cleaned. Have your little guy help to clean up those messes and then try to teach him by example. Show him how you do it , step by step. He will get it. As for things like the DVD player, give him a "job" to do when putting in a DVD- you can put in the DVD and he (with you showing how) can push the play button.
