So here is a 3 year old, passionately pumping his bike tyres.
Life skills are seriously lacking in many children. Reasons are many. As parents we should encourage our children to be an active part of our lives, regardless of how straining it may seem. If your cooking, ask them to cut/tear the herbs. If you’re tidying, ask them to put bits away. While fixing things ask them to hold tools. The lists are endless.
Even if they are children who prefer to be glued to electronic devices ask them to take part in the tasks you do so you can expose them to the wider range of skills only available through watching others!!!!!
