Two-year-long hurry

Is your child studying the contents of cabinets with might and main, running around the playground and demanding the attention of others? Yes, two-year-olds know how. But it also happens that much they still can not do. It is worth a little closer to get acquainted with what can be the strength of your baby. Perhaps you will find your omission and be able to decide where to send his energy in the first place!


At this age is active learning words. And if earlier kids, most often, used syllables, now they start speaking in words and even with whole sentences. It should be understood that the development of a child’s speech, first of all, depends on his parents. If they are used to giving it to themselves, communicate less with each other, replace conversations with watching cartoons, then one should not be surprised at the two-year-old's small vocabulary.

Our daughter at the age of two barely spoke a couple of dozen words. We had only one visit to assess the level of communication with her peer, who spoke clearly. We decided to pay more attention to this issue. Began to accustom themselves to comment on everything that we do at home, and what we see on the street. Just a month later, she "chirped" and with pleasure described what was happening around.

Coordination of movements

By the age of two, the child is already confidently moving down the street, able to run, crouch, and independently go down the stairs. If he doesn’t do something, then it’s just the right time to teach him that. If the kid doesn’t walk much and after 5 meters he asks for his hands, then it’s worth analyzing his own behavior. Perhaps the elementary laziness of the parents and the constant rush somewhere have caused prolonged use of the stroller? Is it any wonder then that the two-year-old was not used to active movement outside the home? Keep the stroller away and walk more actively in the fresh air! If he comes up to you and stretches his arms to carry him to the house, then walk a few steps and distract him with what is happening around. At this age, we actively acquainted children with climbing the vertical stairs of the hill, climbing the hill, learned to squat, jump and move more. This is a golden time for the development of coordination of movements of the baby!


A two-year-old child, in theory, should be able to independently eat with a spoon or fork, drink from a cup, bite off and chew food. If he doesn’t know something, it’s better to pay more attention to it and show how to do it. In the game we taught our children to wash their hands before eating, put a dirty plate on the table near the washbasin, wipe their mouths with a napkin. Understandable things for adults are not always as logical for children. Therefore, it is worth as early as possible to teach by example how to behave at the table.


Yes, some children almost from birth can play on their own. But nevertheless, it is not worthwhile to bypass the issue. The two-chamber should be able to play at least half an hour per hour without adults. If a mother cannot normally go into the shower in the evening due to the fact that a child is crying under the door, then this is no longer good. The baby should be told that there are places where they go without him (toilet, bath). And that adults always come back! At this age, we, like in the other, “run in” every new toy together. It can be clear to you that the red car drives the same way as the old blue one. A little better to show that she can ride on the floor, on the table and even on the wall! One or two joint games allow him to understand what to do next with this toy. Give him that time.


In two years, some children already know how to ask for a pot, while others still go in diapers. Without the support of parents, they will not learn how to do it. Pay attention to your own fumes. Regular repetition and praise during the "hit" in the pot will cause him to learn to do it on his own. In two years, you can still allow the child to "dirty the pants", but at three - this should be a rarity. Time flies so fast! You do not want peers to laugh at him? Then teach two years to go to the pot.

The most important advice:love your children. Sometimes it happens that your crumb in something lags behind peers. But there will definitely be something in which he is better.
