hi Tina ! how r u doing! I understand your concerns. I assume your child to be 3plus. all these mental operations require abstract thinking which come with age and practice. don't worry he is absolutely on the track and with age he will come around. give him more practise by giving simple concrete things from day to day life . say for example an orange and a lemon and ask him which is bigger. also make use of real things which he can feel, see and touch . the more the number of senses used better will be his understanding. go step by step . once he can do with two things, u could make use of 3 objects and so on. praise him for his efforts. scolding should be avoided as its not his fault. doing such operations come with abstract thinking which starts to develop somewhere around 7 years of age. hope this helps!

Hi Tina, hows'your child otherwise? Does he understand and follow other commands or no? If yes, then nothing to worry as this is just a phase, however if you think that he doesn't follow any of your commands then you may need to consult your paediatrician.
