I want to know about my daughter's behavior / personality type. She always copy other kids when playing, eating, using something or in any activity. Always insist for things and toys of other children. And some times she is very irritating. Not listen us. And only do things we tell her not to do. What is the reason and How to deal with that kind of behavior?

She is two? Please don’t worry. It is very normal for children to behave like this between age 2-3 Social skills and sharing skills will be acquired when they begin schooling. At this age they mind about themselves only. They are learning to mind their own minds. Hence it is a complex stage. It is like teenage. Hence prepare her to share some toys when people come over. Allow her to choose what she wants to Share. She will not want to share her favourite toys. It is a temporary phase. All you can do now is to constantly guide her and appreciate her when she behaves well Give her a little treat when she behaves well. She will forget as she is small but patiently guide her till it becomes a habit. This is also the age to imitate others and for pretend play. You just have to keep reminding. If she cries and throw a tantrum , ignore the tantrum. Please find some inputs on how could you foster learning for your toddler. https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/fostering-early-years-of-development-for-your-child/357 All the best and do keep us posted.
