  3. Yarn— Show your little one a yarn cone and tell them the name. 
  4. You— Make sure that your child doesn’t confuse this pronoun with a specific person’s name. But it’s okay for little toddlers to get confused. They will get it right once they grow a little.

Your kids will not only learn the name but also love having it.
