Toddler Milestones 36 months

So what are the big toddler milestones 36 months to look out for ?

Should I be concerned if my toddler has not reached some of the milestones yet ?

You can find the answer to these and many other questions right here!

The toddler milestones 30 months mark is a huge step in your toddlers development because of toddler language development. They can now now communicate verbally what they are not happy about.

They can tell you what they like or don't, also what they want to do or don't. So the "terrible twos" are coming to an end and you will see less and less toddler temper tantrums. As they can now tell you whats on their mind rather than just getting frustrated because they could'nt tell you. As a result they become more happy and settled in their toddler behavior.

Now they can use language more and more they start to really play with other children and can communicate what they want to do with each other. This in turn leads to understanding others needs and learning to share.

This is a time when they start to develop relationships with other children and start to have their first friends. They now mostly like to play with other children and look forward to going to preschool activities with other children and to daycare nursery.

Your child will now be happier to leave their parents for a few hours. As they understand they will be coming back to collect them later. They also feel more comfortable as they can talk with other adult and children around them.
