Most three year olds want to do everything by themselves. My son does not. He is lazy! I can't get him to dress himself, wash himself, clean up after himself, etc. Sometimes he still asks me to feed him (which I DON'T)! Even getting him to pull up and down his own pants when he goes potty is a battle. What can I do to foster his independence? He doesn't respond to all that "big boy" stuff.Answer Question

Thank you so much for all your helpful answers (except you know who...how convenient that she is "anonymous". Duh, of course I didn't think my job would end when he wasn't a baby anymore). I think LovinEveryDay is right. I just need to stop doing things that I KNOW he can already do. I usually just give in after a few minutes. And then like several of you suggested try to make learning new things like a game. I know all children develop at a different pace, but it concerns me that he doesn't even show interest in doing things for himself.
