ave you heard of this famous proverb, “Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I’ll understand.” If you wish to teach something to your toddler, involve them in the activity and ensure the activity is interesting and fun. This is the mantra for teaching to children.

Children love learning when it is taught creatively and interesting. When you say your toddler to sit and listen or repeat the colors or shapes you show, they don’t enjoy learning.
