How your child's developing

"Look at me! Mum, look at me!" your preschooler calls as she zooms down the slide — headfirst. Her growing bravery on the playground may make you wince sometimes, not that she notices. She loves showing off new skills. At three, children walk on tiptoe, try to stand on one foot (and might even succeed for a few seconds), gallop and try to skip, and pedal a tricycle. To keep these gross motor skills developing, she should have at least an hour of physical activity a day.

Unstructured play offers plenty of practice in running and jumping. More organised games like tag, hopscotch and simple ball games build endurance and coordination. To work on balance, encourage your child to walk next to you along a curb or follow a line on the path. Obstacle courses set up inside or outside help children grasp spatial awareness: "Climb over the chair. Now skip around the cone." Better yet, show her yourself - you can get some exercise, too.

"When are we going?" "Tomorrow," you answer. Five minutes later, your preschooler asks. "Are we going yet?" Children vary widely in how well they grasp time. At three, your child may understand sequence (she did it first or last) and how long something takes (a long or short time). But concepts like the past (yesterday) and the future (tomorrow) can be murkier.

Your child is ready to understand days of the week, so mention them whenever you get a chance. For example, remind her that on weekends, Saturday and Sunday, there's no school or work. Or maybe that Monday is the day she goes to playschool.

Your life now

When your child throws a tantrum, don't automatically assume she's tired. Other common triggers for three-year-olds: hunger, sickness, frustration over being unable to do something physical, and wilting from expectations that are too mature for her. Often the best response is no response: give the tantrum a little time to burn itself out. Realise, though, that her emotional state is much too primitive during a tantrum to respond to logical arguments or much other conversation.
