Quoting FantasticMommy:" My 15 month old (will be 16 months on 22nd) can put pants on, take them off, take her shirt off, almost ... [snip!] ... shirt off, almost put a shirt on with help (if you put it on her head she puts her arms through) & can almost put socks on "
Impressive! My stepson will be 3 in June and still acts like he can't do anything himself. He'll take pants off, but not a shirt. And I KNOW he can do it because his pajama shirts will be on the floor in the mornings, but if I ask him to do it, he acts like he can't, tries for 2 seconds, and then asks for help. He will put pants on with a lot of verbal instruction and putting 2 legs in one hole about 10 times first. Won't put a shirt on. Won't put a coat on. Won't put his hat on. Can put boots on with instruction, but not shoes (possibly because they are a little tighter). It's just very frustrating. We've been refusing to help him lately, and actually punishing him (time-outs) for not doing it and refusing to even try. I think it might be because his mom babies him sooo bad.
