My toddler is self-sufficient – he picks up after himself and washes his own hands, but I'm trolled for my approach

MOST toddlers rely on their parents to do nearly everything for them.

They can’t grab a snack, bathe, or clean up after themselves without a helping hand.

One mother, who goes by @montessori.mothering on TikTok, has gained popularity for her videos that offer useful parenting techniques aligned with the Montessori method of teaching.

She said that she taught her toddler how to be self-sufficient—but others are criticizing her for romanticizing the process.

“In the next 11 clips, you see the benefits to making breakfast with your toddler and treating them like the capable beings that they are,” she began.

In the first part of the video, the mother stood her toddler up on a stepping stool next to the kitchen counter and gave him a spoon to begin mixing the eggs.

He then added some salt to the mixture with his own hands.

Afterward, we saw him wiping down the counter with a paper towel.

Once the food was ready, the toddler grabbed his own bib and cup and made his way to the small dining table.

He fed himself and got up from the table once he was done eating.

In the bathroom, another stepping stool helped the toddler climb up to the sink on his own and begin washing his hands.

Although the video has a soothing song in the background to make it feel relaxing, some viewers thought that wasn’t the case:

“I mean, put some cutesy music and only show a few seconds of it and sure, it looks great. In reality, it’s running a marathon,” one person wrote.

“Sure. Except most families, including ours, don’t have time to do this,” added another.

“Right OK but there’s nothing wrong with not parenting like this either,” chimed a third.
