Your Child's Development & Learning

Building Independence and Self-Awareness}


Building Independence and Self-Awareness

Your child has been developing his Self-Concept for a while, and, as an 18-24 month old, has new ways of expressing it. He is now more aware of himself as an individual, identifying himself in the mirror or in photos and able to tell you his name. As he better understands that he's a separate individual, it's a good time to point out that some people look and live differently, with different food, homes, and clothes. Play "Compare and Contrast People" by pointing out the different hair styles, clothes, height, and other physical attributes you see in cultural picture books or while people-watching in your neighborhood.

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