Young children are still developing their language and communication skill they will have to be reminded in taking turns and listening when others are talking. When we are talking to young children we have to speak clearly slowly and not using big words as they won’t understand what we are saying. We will have to check their understanding of what has been said by asking questions or asking them to repeat. Young children get tired quickly when doing activities and they can't concentrate for a long time as they be came fidgety and start playing about touching things and people around them.
