Your little one is fast growing and with that her emotional expanse too is growing. You have held your child in your arms all these years but now is the time when you have to let the little one explore the world on their own. You as a mother have to be the guide for your toddler so that they can pick up positive things in life and learn the art of caring for others.
What you need to know
This age is a vulnerable phase where the kid is prone to pick up all sorts of actions, emotions and activities. Channelize their behaviour so that they acquire good habits. Caring is an emotion that must be taught to a child at an early age.
This would help the pre-schooler to learn the importance of different people in their life. Train the kid through demonstrations that are interesting. You can buy the kid a stuffed toy that they like. Ask them to take good care of it by making it eat, sleep, etc. You can also pick up a toy and pretend that you are doing the same. This way the child would observe and learn. Another way is to bring a pet home. Children who have a pet are found to be more sensitive and concerned.
