How do you get a kid to be independent if they just don't care. DS is only 3, but he has no desire to feed himself, dress himself, or do most anything else for himself. I bet I could count on one hand the number of times I've heard him say "no, I want to do it." Isn't that supposed to be the hallmark of the 2 year old - Me Do It! He would be perfectly content if I carried him out of bed, dressed him like an infant, spoon fed him, fixed every problem he ever had. It's not that he doesn't desire to do certain things, but he doesn't desire to do anything that is a tiny bit frustrating or needs practice. What to do!?
He doesn't seem to be motivated by watching other kids accomplish these things themselves, and there isn't anything he wants long enough or bad enough to set up sticker charts or anything like that. How do I help him develop internal motivation?
