Your preschooler is starting to take an active role in the daily routine and in helping to build strong family relationships. Whatever your family looks like – whether it's just you and your child; or whether your household has many members of several generations – your preschooler needs to feel secure, loved and like they belong in order to thrive. A strong family will help your child's behaviour, learning, development and healthy habits around eating and sleep.
