For kids learning to button their own shirts, suggest they start from the bottom
Speaking of school-readiness, self-dressing is such a confidence-builder for kids and a time-saver for parents. Here's Rabia's simple tip:
My 4-year old daughter has just recently started buttoning her own shirts. She has had some frustration with getting the buttons in the right holes, so I gave her this tip: start from the bottom and go up. It is easier to make sure that the correct buttons and holes are lined up. Now she can button her shirts all by herself!
