It’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with the milestones that coincide with your little one’s age. This will help you see if your child is developing at a normal rate and also give you insight into your toddler’s current behavior.
When you look at toddler development by age, you see that what parents may classify as troublesome toddler behavior may actually be developmental milestones. Take tantrums for example, which are actually a social & emotional milestone of 18 month olds. Or notice that the defiant behavior seen in the “terrible twos” is another social & emotional milestone for age two.
