My 2.5 year old can count by himself, if he thinks no one is listening. But as soon as I say good boy or something to him he turns shy and wont do it for me again. Is this normal? I mean when it comes to the potty or anything else he is soo excited and accepts my praise but when it comes to counting, he turns shy to me. I dont push him to count but I dont know what I am doing to make him shy away from the praise. Let me know your imput please and thank you!
