this post? I forgot to show you all the finished cupcake. So here it is.
Whenever N. asks me to make something for her, I let her choose the color combination and the style. She's never asked for anything crazy yet, thankfully. Even though I'm making it, I want her to start thinking about the colors and how they go together. And I want her to be able to make her own choices (within reason).
But sometimes I feel like I'm creating a little monster, she's become so particular about clothes and shoes...
What about you? How much choice do you think younger children should be able to have in their daily life? Is it different in the domain of aesthetics?
