Be patient with your child, we all grow and learn. Since they are younger, they need more time and effort. Understand that they can only do certain tasks at specific ages, which will expand as they grow older. Most importantly, make sure you enjoy your kids at each age, since it’s definitely true what they say: they grow up too fast!
