Cooperation and Play

In his third year, your child is ready to make a step from parallel play (i.e. playing alongside, but not with, other children) to more social play. He is learning about Cooperation, taking turns, and sharing. As he understands more about others, he'll start to understand that not everything belongs to him, and you'll increasingly hear him identifying things around the house as "mine," "hers," "little brother's," or "Mom's." And as he begins to play with other children, he'll develop a growing interest for group activities and start to have favorite friends.

Has your child achieved the following Cooperation developmental milestones yet? If yes, check off all the skill(s) he has already mastered to date!
