Selfish or Just Normal?

It might seem as if your toddler’s world revolves around himself. With all the new discoveries he’s making about his world every day, it’s no wonder that his wants and needs are paramount to anything else. While this might feel selfish, keep in mind that it’s only temporary.

Children at this age don’t really understand empathy or sympathy. But they do mimic the actions and behaviors of those they’re around the most, so when you act in a caring way toward others, your toddler sees it. The rest will come in time.

For now, it’s good to give your child plenty of time to become more “social”. As she grows, so will her ability to see beyond her own reflection.
