Learn how to encourage your child’s increasing independence and endless imagination through play, routine, and relationships. From “Magic of Everyday Moments—Series 2.”
Two-year-olds often spend a lot of time in the world of pretend. When you watch your child and join in (while letting them be the director) you will learn a lot about what they are thinking and feeling. They may make up stories where they are the dad who goes to work and you are the child left at home or in child care. They may be the queen who gets everything they want!
There may be some big adjustments ahead for both of you, as well. You might be considering preschool. Learning to use the potty may be on the horizon. Perhaps there is a new baby coming into the picture. You may be concerned about how your toddler will adjust…or how you will handle two! These are all opportunities to help your child learn to cope with life’s changes.
