What’s irresistibly cute, can out-energise the Energizer Bunny, comes with a penchant for demolition and usually has sticky fingers? That’s right – it’s the beloved toddler, and they are MIGHTY.
Toddlerhood is an incredibly rich phase of development for kids, and when you get your head around what’s actually going on with these little guys, it’s no surprise that they are a force to be reckoned with.
1. They are ambidextrous!
Does your toddler draw with his left hand, but swing a bat with his right? You’re not alone in being confused about your child’s handedness.
Tots don’t usually begin to favour a specific hand until somewhere between the age of two and four.
Usually by school age the child will have established their preferred hand. (Unless your child is in the one per cent of the population who will remain ambidextrous for life!)
