- Eat with one’s hand
Earlier, the better. Kids enjoy food more when they eat on their own. The only part we have to bear is cleanup later which is worth of all.

It’s important to understand the value of money.Let it start with school belongings like school bag, books ,shoes etc. Keeping shoes back to right place, keeping books neat in cupboard so that will get it when needed, handling school bag with proper care are some of the dos.
Taking care of own uniform after returning back from school, like keeping it to air dry on hanger and then folding it.
