So, what is the child doing motorically at 2 1/2 to 3 years, during the stage of Communicative Intent?
You will marvel at the child’s ability to express their thoughts and/or to explain in detail why they are not doing what you told them to do (the fruits of a formal language code).
Motorically, the child is stressing his/her mother out by climbing and jumping a lot.
They can stand on one foot in precarious places. They will get into all kinds of containers using their enhanced hand and finger coordination.
They will master the six block tower, although dad may have some problems with it.
