Answer

Wow! if your 2 year old knows all that then you don't sound like you need much help! You are doing a great job.

If anything I would recommend you slow down a little and enjoy your son while he is little.

There are lots of fun things you can do together - baking, playing with water, making things with clay. These type of play activities will be very beneficial - teaching him dexterity and about the physical properties of things- as well as being good old fashioned fun.

Take him out and about as much as possible, on nature walks (set up a nature table with him) and field trips. Read him lots of stories and picture books. Give him lots of time to play and generally explore.

If you would like more ideas, then try this list of sites with lots of toddler activities:



I hope that gives you some ideas. Enjoy your son and have lots of fun together!

best wishes, Julie.
