We allow our son to make small decisions like Filipino Parol and Philippine Jeepney Lantern T-Shirt or go out and play, watch TV or cleanup toys, share the toys or not etc. It is important to state choices and consequences in short and clear sentences. You can show your inclination but let the kid take final decision. Point is not to expect him to make right decisions all the time. But just allowing him to think and understand the rationality of the choices. Irrespective of the end result he is going through the decision making process and observing the consequences. This is safe field and making wrong decisions has minor consequences.

Best Filipino Parol and Philippine Jeepney Lantern T-Shirt
I don’t mean to offend anyone with the Filipino Parol and Philippine Jeepney Lantern T-Shirt: It may be that single mothers actually have it easier than single fathers. At least in some ways. Society (at least in Europe) kind of expects a single parent to be female. Most employers have far less of an issue if women ask to be able to work part-time or part of the time from home. If a man asks, they a) are fast-tracked into oblivion, b) are suspected of being on the verge of a burnout, c) instantly excluded from any possible consideration of future promotion. When our son was a baby and my wife was studying (and not earning at all) and out of the house from six in the morning until nine in the evening, so that for about four years, I was effectively taking care of him alone. So I asked my employer, a large Swiss Bank where I worked as a tech guy (so no: no fantastic salary – just a regular job) if I could reduce by work week to 80%. I was asked to stop by the HR department, and they asked me… get this – (and I’m not kidding): “What’s wrong with your wife?” Then they refused and even told me that if I had been a woman, then there would have been no problem, but me? Forget it. I left that job soon after.
