Your child should be getting better at understanding the feelings of others which means they should be able to share toys more easily during playtime. They should be able to easily transition from playtime to dinner time or homework time without getting upset. This is called flexible thinking, and it is something your child will continue to develop into adulthood. If you have any concerns about your child’s development, make sure to bring them up to your healthcare provider.
