Cooperation, Empathy for Others
Cooperative Play - Opening the Door to Cooperation
Up until this point, your child has most likely been engaging in parallel play, sitting near another child and playing independently with similar toys, or observing what other children are doing. Around 18-24 months, though, he will really start playing with other children, first through associative play and then cooperative play. As the name suggests, cooperative play teaches your child to work with others and develop his Empathy for Others skills.
