Re: Pulling pants down?
I made a game of it. "Today we're going to practice pulling our pants on and off!" I had her practice doing it when she didn't have to go potty, just had her practice pulling pants down to her ankles and sitting on a kid-sized chair. I also did the same thing with her practicing putting on different types of clothes on her own (pants, underpants, socks, shirts, sweaters, shoes etc), basically teaching her how to play dress-up. Now that she's 4, she ends up doing multiple outfit changes during the day to amuse herself, but I figure at least she is learning skills she will need to be fully independent sooner.
