What to expect of a one year old
Most children can walk without support by 14 months. They can scribble, stack blocks, and definitely want to do things independently. Temper tantrums are common at this age, and these young children have not yet learned to share their toys.
One-year olds view themselves as the center of the world. They begin to express new emotions, such as jealousy, affection, pride and shame. They begin to show increasing fears, and may continuously ask for their parents. Routines are very important at this age.
The word "no" is a favorite of one-year-olds. They start to combine two words to form a simple sentence. Often they point to objects that they want. They can imitate animal sounds, name familiar people and objects, and name body parts. Children at this age are still very active. Because of their developing imagination, one-year-olds sometimes have trouble knowing what is real and what is pretend.
