Before my baby girl turned into a child, I had no idea how important it was for parents to help their kids become independent. I also had no idea how determined my kid would be to "do it myself". She chooses her clothes for school, brushes her own hair (that mom comes back and rebrushes) and puts on her shoes. Being self reliant is not only important, it is crucial to get my daughter out of the door as quickly as possible with the least amount of tantrums. I'm constantly on the lookout for products that foster her growth to becoming a self-sufficient child. When I heard about Myself Belts, I just had to learn more. What are these belts all about? I found out Myself Belts are the perfect tool when it comes to getting kiddo dressed and accessorized and promotes their self esteem when learning how to clothe themselves. What you should know about these belts:
We received the very girly Ballet Belt in Medium (age 4) for my daughter to review and it was the perfect choice. Light pink cotton webbing with a light pink ribbon with just a hint of glitter sewn on, the belt is durable and attractive. One side folds over to snap onto her belt loop to keep it firmly in place, with the other a velcro closure. Once weaved through the loops the opposite end connects to the velcro for a secure, yet easily removeable attachment. Obviously your child won't be able to handle the weaving themself but once on, pants will stay up and potty breaks will be handled with "I did it myself" pride!
Myself Belts come in several styles for boys and girls, from canvas to leather and even personalized belts starting in sizes XS (age 2) to XXL (7/8) although they also offer teen and adult sizes which are perfect for those with cognitive difficulties and arthritis. Affordable with some belts beginning at $9.99, Myself Belts are the perfect gift for the newly potty trained or beginning kidergartener. Show kiddo early how cool being independent is!
