Big Kids

Baby At the Park

When out at a place like a park, look for the big kids. Sit your child on your lap or move yourselves so you can watch them together and talk about what you’re seeing. “Those kids are playing hide-and-seek like you will one day!”

See what your child is learning

Watching and talking about big kids gives your child the chance to learn about other people by watching. As they get older, they will want to imitate kids on the swings or going down slides. For now, watching and talking are fun.
