Self-Reliance is important for children. Learning to be self-reliant is important to be taught when a child is at a young age so it can develop, as they grow older. Being self-reliant is presented to be the ability to take control over your life, being motivated from within, and being able to take care of oneself. Starting when a child is young it is important to not do everything for them. We gradually hand them tasks to complete making it known that they have the power to be independent. By teaching a child to be independent, as they grow older it will develop personal skills beneficial to their growth.
