Match activities to development and set rules with reasons


Parents of capable toddlers:

  •  Encourage their children to help with household chores.

  • Have regular family routines (like mealtimes).

  •  Allow their children to do some messy things, such as washing dishes.

  • Choose programs carefully, then limit and supervise their children’s television viewing.

  • Observe their children closely to keep them safe —and to fit activities to their child’s developing skills.

  •  Read to their children daily.

  •  Have firm, consistent rules and give children reasons for these rules.

  •  Teach their children and actively help them learn.

  • Play with their children frequently —including pretend play.
