Reaching the age of 18 to 24 months, your child has started to speak more single words and walk more steadily. He loves to imitate adults and participate in different aspects of life to test his abilities. You may find that it is not easy to control your child. He may act out and throw tantrums. He needs you to encourage him to learn, explore, communicate with others, and develop independence and obedience. Spend more time with your child to interact with him and guide him.
