Sharp ears

Children's hearing is way better than adults. They pick sounds of high frequencies. This is because their ears are not yet exposed to pollution or loud noise that causes wear and tear.

Small stomach

The reluctance to eat more is not to cause a tantrum but due to their small stomach. Their stomach is literally the size of their clenched fist. Hence, giving your child small meals at intervals is beneficial.

Questions galore

The flurry of questions is their way of understanding the world. Sometimes it is also a plea for attention, whereas the repeated questions are either for a better response or a source of comfort.

Love for laughter

Toddlers thoroughly enjoy making you laugh. It boosts their self-esteem, reflects development, and increases optimism. Do silly stuff, make funny faces, and watch hilarious content together for a good laugh.

Super active

The toddler phase is the most active stage for a child since they are worry-free and keen to explore everything. They can take as many as 178 steps in a minute.

Left or right-handed

Don’t get confused if your little one holds the pencil with their left hand and pops in a snack with the right hand. Children can be ambidextrous (skilfully using both hands) until a certain age and change to the preferred one later.

Have you noticed your toddler repeatedly using the words you use or performing the actions that you do? It is their way of processing and learning everything that an adult does.
