Showing How It's Done: Your Child Can Be a Teacher, Too!

Your child is getting increasingly capable of doing things on his own and is reaching a related milestone: the ability to teach others how to do familiar things! He may show a younger child how to put on a jacket or use a zipper (he might also preface it by saying, "That's not how you do that!"). He may explain to a friend the rules to a certain game. If Grandma is visiting, he may tell her if she strays from the usual bedtime routine, saying, "No, I put on my pajamas and then brush my teeth!" This is a great way for him to show his independence and reinforce his knowledge of different subjects. So put him to the test and find out how much he really knows!

Has your child achieved the following Self-Concept developmental milestones yet? If yes, check off all of the skill(s) he has already mastered to date.
