Toddlers between two and three really want to find out about themselves and what they want and don't want.
The most important thing to remember about your children at this age is that they are still very young and they know very little about the world that they find themselves in.
The Raising Children Network website has a lot of information about toddlers, including information about development, behaviour, fitness, health and daily care. As well as articles there are several videos. The Raising Children Network site has been funded by the Australian Government.
The information on this site should not be used as an alternative to professional care. If you have a particular problem, see a doctor, or ring the Parent Helpline on 1300 364 100 (local call cost from anywhere in South Australia).
This topic may use 'he' and 'she' in turn - please change to suit your child's sex.
