Young children learn through imitation. They love to watch you and try to imitate what you are doing. Infants learn social norms and how things work by watching you and their older siblings. Toddlers aim to do what you do, and strive to do what their older siblings do. This is their play. Through encouragement and trial and error, this is how they learn.
