Commonly used phrases with toddlers

I am trying to teach my two years old daughter English. I am wondering if there is anyone who could recommend me some useful books, films, dramas or a youtube chanel on child upbringing etc. so that I could pick up some phrases to communicate with her.

Thank you so much in advance.

Hi Csenge,

I suggest you make a note in your phone of all the things you say to her during the day. My guess is this would include things like "Come here" "What's this?" "This is a..." Pick your.... up" "Let's brush your teeth".

If you have a go at how to write them in English you can send them to me to check. That way we can get a lot of useful phrases together that have meaning in your everyday life. Be aware though that a 2 year old is only starting to create phrases in their native language so it would be unreasonable to expect them to be able to do that in a second language. However the development of language comes from our parents talking to us naturally and children are very good at guessing.
