By this stage, you might begin to notice that your child is better at some things than others. Of course, this is only natural - and may children struggle with certain activities simply because they are not interested in them. So don't worry if it takes your child a while to get the hang of something new. Just give lots of praise and encouragement as they learn. Some children may now be ready to learn how to tell the time. Explain to your child how a clock works, and explain how you do certain things like go to school or get ready for bed at certain times of the day. You could even buy your child their own wristwatch to encourage them to practise.
