Your Child Can Throw A Large Ball In The Intended Direction

Team AckoFeb 8, 2024


    At this stage, your child will love to climb, jump and run more often in a direction opposite to you.
    Your child is now 2 years old ,and now your toddler is much more physically able. And now he will want to explore the outer limits of his abilities. But his new-found confidence will also mean that he is at a higher risk of accidents as he doesn't understand when he should stop. So he needs to be supervised at all times.
    What you need to know
    At this point, you will notice that your little one can now throw a large ball in the direction he wants to and also softly kicks a ball. Your kiddo might also attempt to catch a ball with the two hands. He can also walk up and down the stairs and might also pedal a ride on toy such as bike. It is a great way to understand that your little one is developing gross motor skills. It is also a positive sign that your child is developing learning skills.
    However, your kiddo always need you as mentor to learn new things safely. Allow him to explore the world ,but remember that he doesn't know how to keep himself safe. Also give him plenty of time to play outdoors, you can take him to the local park to play on the swings and slippery dip, or the beach to dig in the sand, or your garden for kicking a ball and water play. But if you think or find the signs of any developmental delay as he can’t run smoothly, he isn't able to walk up stairs or climb up onto low furniture, he is markedly more or less active than his peers. You can go and seek advice from your doctor. Try not to be overly concerned if your toddler is acquiring new skills at a different rate to those around him.
