My child is 1. 4 yr old. He doesn't try to learn anything, whatever he likes he only does those things. even sometime he doesnt play with toys. he plays with utensils, tear the news paper etc. sometime he slap himself in his head. How to stop him doing these things and teach basic things? Thanks, Abhishek

Children actually love simple stuff to play with. Use the utensil and newspapers in creative ways to teach him colours or numbers or shapes. As he edges towards 2 he is going to exhibit autonomy. You may think he is not minding you. Well he is minding his own mind. He is curious and exploring in his own way. Go along the journey. Being patient and firm will help
