Two Year Visit

Now that you have a little toddler running wild without a fear in the world, it is essential to turn up your parenting radar.

Four Year Visit

By this age, kids have begun to develop some basic executive function skills. To really bring this out, challenge your child with multi-step commands that force him to think a few steps ahead. For example, ask him to get ready for bed without specifying the steps. This will serve your little student well as he learns to manage his cubby and negotiate his classroom.
