It’s been awhile since we talked about toddler’s developmental milestone so today allow me to share Cyler’s latest developmental progress. Last weekend, while we were playing iPad with Cyler I asked him write a letter because Mama told me that my two-year old toddler, Cyler can write a few letters already. So I told him, baby(that’s how I fondly call Cyler) can you write a letter A? And we were all surprised because he was able to write the letter A! Yes, he wrote that letter A below. Ang arte ng pagkakasulat ng A noh?! #ManangManaHindiNgaLangSakin
He wrote not just letter A, he also wrote other letters too like W, Y, B, C, D, G, X,L, and E. Lahat nga lang ng letters may mga buntot like what he did to letter A. We also taught him how to draw circle, swirl, square, rectangle, and heart shape. He was able to draw circle, swirl, and heart shape already but we were still working on other shapes and letters too especially those complicated ones. I can see that his fine motor skills are improving each day because he can now grasp the pencil and color properly although we are still teaching him how to hold a pencil in writing position. The only problem is that he likes using both hands so we are having a hard time to determine if he’s left or right-handed. He use his left hand most of the time though.
So first things first. How did Cyler learn writing? I don’t know either! LOL! No but seriously we just wait until Cyler got really interested and excited about it. As a mom, my number one parenting rule is never pressure your child and never compare your kid’s milestones to other kids. Bear in mind that kids are unique individuals. Every child is smart and gifted, your rule as a parent is to help them improve and develop their skills. Just enjoy learning with your toddler, like what I always say learning should always be fun. Your baby’s fine motor skills will improve steadily as they grow, which will help them get ready to grab a crayon/pencil. So chillax and take it easy, don’t pressure your child. Take it one baby step at a time. 🙂
I have question for you, how to tell if your toddler is right or left-handed? Any tips Moms and Dads?
