Early childhood is a time of complex social and cognitive development, but it can be explained in ways that are helpful to the average parent or caregiver. This video sheds light on toddler behavior and presents strategies for coping with children in the 1-to-3-year-old range. Helen and Clive Dorman, founders of The Children’s Project, share their firsthand parenting experiences and the findings of early childhood education specialists; explore the basics of toddler growth and learning; look at the world from a small child’s perspective; and examine the needs of especially challenging children. Mobility, copying, repetition, fine motor skills, categorizing, and many other developmental benchmarks are highlighted. (43 minutes)

How Do Toddlers Learn? (03:35)
Children develop at different rates. They learn by copying, repetition, and experimentation. Children learn fine motor skills in stages.

Child Learning: Categorization and Communication (04:34)
Children go through the categorization stage as they recognize groups of objects. This stage of development is important for future tasks. Toddlers communicate without words.

Toddler Relationships and Toddler Behavior (04:37)
Toddlers are fascinated with other toddlers. They are not yet skilled to play and share initially. Parents often expect more of their toddlers than they are capable of.

Boundaries for Toddlers (02:42)
Parents set boundaries for toddlers to help them learn what is and what isn't acceptable behavior. At times, restraining a child is necessary for the child's safety.

Temper Tantrums (02:43)
Many toddler tantrums arise out of sheer frustration. Children get more afraid of being out of control. They look to adults to bring them back into control and security.

Toddlers, Sleep Problems, and Parent-Child Relationships (03:30)
Toddlers need time to calm down before they are expected to sleep. To bring out the best in a child, parents must show respect and empathy, and listen to and observe the child.

Parental Control Can Go Too Far (06:51)
A mother does not give her toddler space to be himself. She yells, instructs, and controls rather than gives him praise for what he does well.

Role-Playing for Parents (02:59)
Parents role-play to get an idea of their child's perspective. Children cannot say what they want and they have little concept of time. Therefore, to get attention, they'll do just about anything.

Parents Have Unrealistic Expectations (03:59)
Parents often have unrealistic expectations of their children, forgetting that they may not be developed enough to achieve parent aims. Some parents give too many instructions for children to remember.

Instructions for Parents of Toddlers (03:55)
Physical contact with toddlers helps them feel appreciated, safe, and loved. Children feel insecure when parents interfere or take over during playtime. Parents should show appreciation as often as possible.
