1 year 9 months: teaching discipline
The child already does all the actions consciously. The body is accustomed to obeying the will (although before that there were a lot of trial and error). The child no longer pulls everything in his mouth in order to explore it. He uses other senses: vision, touch.
If the child is given pencils and paper, then most likely he will not pull the pencils in his mouth, and he will not squeeze the paper. He will start to draw.
Although it’s still difficult to call these scribbles a drawing, it’s the first step towards the development of a child’s conscious creativity.
In the game, the child loses simple stories: feeds the doll, puts the bear to sleep. What he sees in everyday life. The role-playing game is the main game activity in children for a long time.
The child already eats what adults eat. He learned to consistently bite, chew, and swallow solid foods. Every day he is trying to do more himself. He tries to put on a hat, wash his hands, drink from a mug, helps an adult put it on: puts his hand out to put it in his sleeve, raises his leg to put on his shoe.
It is during this period that you need to actively instill good habits: brush your teeth 2 times a day (if you have not already accustomed this child), do exercises.
The child learns to interact with surrounding people. So, for example, if a toy does not work or breaks, then he carries it to an adult so that he repairs it. Interacts with other children on the site: children can play small story games together, so they learn to work together.
Children at this age observe the emotional reaction of loved ones and focus on them in an unfamiliar situation. Considers parents as a kind of “safe base.” For example, he goes to play and chat with others, but looks back at his parents or returns to reassure him if he is alarmed.
1 year 9 months – the beginning of the era of “I myself”. Do not forbid your child to be independent. This is important now and in the future. You will have to stock up on patience and time, but very soon the child will learn to do simple things independently and quickly, and you will see the incomparable advantage of your independent baby. Remember that he can arrange a tantrum if adults do not understand him – such a reaction is quite normal.
Many parents take these children to all kinds of developmental activities, a pool and other developmental activities. All this teaches only one thing – discipline.
In fact, there are absolutely no advantages to the early development of children. Because by the age of 5-6 years, they are all roughly aligned.
At the same time, being engaged in early development of the baby from the cradle, the mother simply can get tired of having classes with the baby by the time she has classes with her baby. Therefore, today, most of the activities with such children are nothing more than the desire of the mother, and not the need for the child.
Daily understanding of speech increases by 1-2 words and by 1 year 9 months is approximately 50 words. A child at this age can still not actively speak (all the children are different and some begin to speak only closer to the 3rd year), but understanding speech is an important stage in the development of the child.
♦ Distinguishes a circle and a square.
♦ Climbing furniture and coming down without help.
♦ Recognizes friends and oneself in photographs.

At this age, the child wants to be in the spotlight. He will achieve this by any means. Carefully, but firmly, let us understand that you are not his property. The kid is already able to establish simple causal relationships.
Do not set excessive tasks. Always start small and move from simple to complex. Do not compare your child with a neighbor (or with yourself at this age). These are different people and they have the right to individual development.
