One of the best ways to help your child grasp how time works is to make a chart of what he or she did in a day. Write down what you did in the morning, and what you ate at lunch. Note what time he or she took a nap, and what you’re doing now. Then write down what will happen tonight, when your child baths and goes to bed. Make a note of whatever you will be dong tomorrow too.
The best way to get your child to understand how time works is to refer to it as much as possible in every day life. Refer to time in morning, noon, evening and so on, or use the numerical values if you prefer – although your child won’t grasp them yet.
You can also start teaching your child what the days of the week are, and what weekends are. That way, when you tell him that you’re doing something in particular on a particular day, he or she will understand what you mean.
