How toddlers learn to walk
Crawling, walking and talking are important milestones that every parent looks out for. The toddler years are a stage of unparalleled learning opportunity, and your child’s experiences at this important time will stay with them for life. You can encourage all of these skills and a fascination for the world in your child by actively playing with them.
What toddlers need most is the time and space to explore, your interaction and conversation, and simple toys that help them use their imaginations. Repeated experiences help them learn, so when your toddler says, “Again! Again!” just go with it. Play is part of a bigger picture that includes listening, observing and social interaction that you as a parent can help promote.
Learning to stand and observe, and simply taking in the world around them is often an underestimated part of toddler play and experience. Take time out to go for a walk simply for the sake of it, stopping to look at and talk about every flower, bug, shop window or object that your toddler takes an interest in. It’s a simple activity, but fantastic for encouraging one-to-one bonding, language, observation, curiosity and physical exercise.
Active play - moving, chatting, imagining, sharing experiences and bonding with each other - really is one of the best things you can do for your toddler at this amazing stage of their lives.
