Our Terrific Two’s are so proud when they achieve something, like stacking toys successfully! At Apple Hill Academy we like to speak about the developmental phase experienced by young children that is often marked by “cheeky” behavior, as the “Terrific Two’s” stage. It is a wonderful time for parents and educators to appreciate the opportunities available in which to build confidence in toddlers.
Confidence building is the single most important life skill a person will ever acquire. It impacts happiness and the way we relate to others in every sphere of living. It is a desirable quality that is attractive to others. Confidence breeds success! Confidence is terrific!
So, when it comes to the frustration that some two year old’s express when they are learning new skills, we say “change your views about the Two’s.”
