How To Teach...

Is there a way to teach my daughter to do things like clapping? I see other moms talking about how their child learned 'so big' and how to clap, and I'm wondering if that's just something she'll eventually pick up, or should I work on it with her? This was one of my main concerns before having her, was my lack of ability to teach things to her- I know it's just clapping, and its not the end of the world if she doesn't do it right away. But, if I can't teach her something as simple as clapping, then how will I be able to teach her how to tie her shoes when the time comes?

Children learn from watching and copying. If you do it enough times she will do it.
There's no magic way to teach your child things, just talk to them like normal people, describe things you are doing or giving her, that will teach her to talk.

Maybe you should look at reading some parenting books as well.
