What's in Store
Play, fun, and learning are all the same to your toddler. You will notice fast and significant changes in her levels of understanding, reasoning, and speed of response. Learn what's in store in this excerpt from Your Toddler Month by Month.
No doubt about it: You will need immense patience and humor at this stage of development. Your toddler will often approach tasks in an unconventional way that may challenge your view of how things should be done. She will want to repeat what she does more times than you would have believed possible.
Do spend lots of time with her and show her how things work and what to do; your involvement and encouragement are vital to developing her future potential. You will also need the tolerance to allow her to make her own discoveries, without too much direction and correction.
