Month 32

Watching your 32-month-old will be pure entertainment this month as she learns to walk on tiptoes, can zigzag in and out and stops and starts quickly when she runs. She is also very unpredictable, so make sure she is aware of road safety and knows not to dash out into the road. She can probably say her name and if she has a penchant for running off it might be a good idea to try teaching her where she lives in case she gets lost. If her address is too hard for her at this stage, make sure it is written on her rucksack if you are out for the day or sewn into the label of her clothes. You can teach her what to do if she does get lost (look for a uniformed person who works in a shop or another mummy with children).

Imagination

Your child’s language is now more complex and she can convey feelings like being tired, hungry or cold. Playtime is also getting more complex as she may be able to match shapes and colours and do a very simple big jigsaw. She will also play at make-believe with her toys and make up adventures for Teddy. Here is an opportunity for you to get on your knees and indulge in a bit of fantasy yourself.

Biting and hitting

As well as complex language skills, complex emotions and tantrums will also materialise. Because many toddlers are just understanding what is right and wrong they will not know how to properly behave with other children for a while. At this stage you may see an occurrence of biting and hitting when your child becomes frustrated with another, usually when a favourite toy is taken away.
