Your toddler is beginning to form phrases, and starting to experiment with tenses, which means there will be some mistakes in usage along the way.
It can be funny or frustrating. But resist the urge to correct your child’s grammar. Just continue to use correct grammar in your responses.
If she says, “I goed” echo “Oh, you went!” Soon enough, she will learn the right way to use words and phrases, and you’ll see how children pick up new skills from the adults around them.
