Observe the child when clothes are being changed.
Encourage the adult to let the child help pull the pants down, once started.
Once the pants are down over the child’s bottom, he continues to push them down, then sits to pull them off.
Encourage parents to purchase pants with elastic waistbands. They are easier for the child to manipulate.
