They are rapidly growing and developing skills that are important for their motor development. Large muscle groups, from head to toe are involved in such a phase.

What you need to do
Ideally, your plan should to be stay connected with your little one. They may be self-sufficient and peer-oriented, but they still need some time with you. So, organize play dates with them and their friends, develop family rituals for fostering connections with your child. Have Sunday brunches to teach them how to use a knife and fork or make costumes for Halloween.
Never miss their athletic meets or event days, encourage them in games and activities. This will make them confident and ensure proper development.
