Toddler Cues

Scrunched-up nose? Pay attention to our cues!


Even before we start talking, we, i.e. toddlers, do tell you what we want! In fact, we are filled with cues – just pay attention and you’ll see! We are known for “making faces” – from smiling, frowning and scrunching up our noses! I certainly scrunch my nose every now and then (combined with sounds such as cooing, crying and/or grunting). We also move a lot (if you haven’t noticed it by now!); we move our bodies to reach out, turn away, push up or push down.

So, these are my cues to you! I hope you find them helpful – but now it’s your turn!

What are some cues you’ve discovered with your toddler(s)?
