20 to 24 months: Towards toddlerhood: Baby's transition to independence

Your child is now at the age where he or she wants to be fully involved; he or she wants to be fully involved in everyday life. Development at a glance (21 to 24 months):

Between the ages of 21 and 24 months, children make a variety of developmental strides as they continue to grow and explore their surroundings. Here are some key milestones and developments that are typical for children this age:

  • Language development: Language development continues, and many children at this age can have a larger vocabulary and form simple sentences. They can also start asking questions and learning more about the world around them.

  • Motor Skills: Gross and fine motor skills continue to improve, and children at this age can walk, run, climb, and even climb stairs. You can also start drawing with pens or stacking small objects.

  • Independence: Children of this age often show a strong need for autonomy and want to do many things themselves. You can try to dress yourself, help with meals, or do simple household tasks.

  • Social Interaction: Social development progresses, and children at this age may show more interest in other children and begin to play simple social games. They may also show early signs of empathy and try to help others.

  • Cognitive development: Cognitive development also increases, and children at this age can begin to solve simple problems and understand relationships. They can also begin to develop their imagination and engage in role-playing games.

  • Emotional Development: Emotional development is an important part of development at this age, and children can learn to express and manage their emotions. They can also learn to recognize and respond to their own needs and those of others.

It is important to note that each child develops individually and reaches milestones at their own pace.
