Home is where the heart is. The same is felt by your little one too. Though she seems to enjoy the outdoors pretty much, the child will want to spend time with family at the end of the day. Ideally, she is ready to learn more about her family tree.
What you need to know
Parents or primary caretakers are still the young one’s source of security. You will begin to see the child’s acceptance of siblings as an integral part of the family, and start sharing everything with them. Grandparents’ company will be cherished. The child’s understanding of relations such as paternal uncle, maternal aunt will be clearer. He or she will be able to relate relations to others as well, though it is common to forget complex relations.
Exposing the child to all relations will help in the understanding of importance of family life. Children will get excited to find someone similar in values, customs, language, food and tend to develop a sense of belongingness with the family. It plays a crucial role in improving their social skills, building self-esteem and developing leadership responsibilities.
