At this age, your child will seem to be continually on the go—running, kicking, climbing, jumping. This yearlong energy spurt certainly will keep you on the go. But take heart—his activity level will strengthen his body and develop his coordination.
Children in the 2- to 5-year-old age group get their motivation and develop motor skills from self-play behaviors. Active games and backyard play are great sources of exercise for your child.
