John is making his daughter ready for the school
I guess you understand what I mean by the above sentence, though it's weird and may have grammatical errors. If you don't understand the above, here is what I'm trying to say - "John helps his daughter to get ready for the school" - Here by helping I mean tying the shoes, helping her to put the jacket, etc.
So now, my question whether using the word "making" is correct in this context? If I just transulate my native language sentence word by word, I get this word "making". But for me, it's looks so weird in English and I don't know how a native English speaker will write the above sentence.
