In brief: Focus on safety

Set rules surrounding safety issues- like how to cross a street, not talking to strangers, etc.
These are the most important for your child to learn well and early. Practice them often to help with reinforcement. Other important concepts include learning manners (please and thank you) and how to play nicely with other kids (no biting, sharing).
