6. Familiarize Your Child With the Concept of Time

Does your child understand day and night? Is he familiar with months and days of the week? Does he know his age and birthday?

Help your child get a better grasp of time by creating a calendar together that highlights special days in your child's life. That way, he'll start to understand how many days he'll need to wait before grandpa visits or he gets to go to the zoo.
