Most toddlers can walk fairly well by eighteen months, though your heart may miss a beat as she breaks into a run. Now is the time to teach your toddler some simple safety rules such as, she can only run in the park and not by the road and she must always keep you in sight. With running and independence comes the ability to get lost, so make sure you know where she is at all times as she'll love to explore and wonder off. Try sewing her name into her coat or rucksack before a day trip out.
