Bottom line is simple....Talk to your baby throughout the day. For example, when you are changing his diaper you could say \"Daddy is changing your diaper.\" If you are feeding your baby, say \"Mommy is feeding the baby.\" By doing this, you are assisting him or her in expanding his or her vocabulary and learning new words. Mimic the baby when he or she makes the baby noises. When he or she says Aah and Ooh you should repeat it.
Socially, kids in this age group are more interested in belonging to their peer group than they were in the preschool years. They have become less interested in playing with kids of the opposite sex preferring friends of the same sex. They have developed increased skills in cooperative playing with groups of kids, so they get more enjoyment from group activities. They are at the beginning stages of being able to participate in competitive team sports. They have an increased sense of fairness and in living up to standards, both for themselves and for the groups they belong to. They continue to grow more interested in dramatic plays so they get increased enjoyment from producing shows and plays. They have entered the beginning stages of showing interest in the bigger community. With their new skills, kids are eager to find new ways to experiment and explore. Providing them with age-appropriate learning toys can help them achieve healthy child development.
