Is this normal?

She just never stops moving.
We try doing aqua draw,painting,reading with her,holds her attention for about a minute and shes off looking for mischief again.

Perfectly normal. She's 19 months old!

Yes, it's normal smile

They don't concetrate until they go to school, and then only at school, not at home. grin

I've never met a 19month old who can conentrate. A minute is very good. I wouldn't worry.

Really normal! Unless its something they love doing and then it might stretch to 10mins!grin

Iirc, my mother (reception teacher) said that if you expect one minute's concentration for every year of their age that's about average - course, some will concentrate for more, but your dd sounds totally normal to me smile
