I need help!

When I first started teaching little ones my tendency was to immediately help when I heard, "I need help!" Then I realized that every time I quickly rush in to help I am robbing children of the opportunity to grow their independence. Now I say, "Try first. If you still need help, I'll help you." The persistence, patience, trust, independence, and confidence that grew out of this change was a game changer.
