Babies are very remarkable beings, and just about everybody loves them. Just as happy as they are, they will be excited to let you lead them. But as he has gone past infanthood and become a daring toddler, he will discover that staying by your side all the time isn’t compulsion. They tend to run around and have you chase them for baths, diaper changes or clothing. Though it may be frustrating, it is one of the best signs of his development. While you don’t want him or her to get in harm’s way and restrict them, he would be heading there regardless. They want to put their newfound superpower into practice. This article will help you manage your toddler.
First, you need to let him be the boss of himself sometimes
He will never learn to take good care of himself if he never gets a chance to. They push their limits because they want their authorities to be a big deal. Give him room when it is safe, as it will accord him some feeling of respect, and trust, making him less revolting in contrary circumstances. Sometimes, let him decide, and then you follow.
You also need to practice some prevention, because it is not simple to put him under control at times, so you have to remove the barriers to good conduct. Don’t bundle or drag your child somewhere he doesn’t want to due to hunger or restlessness; that would be aiming for failure. Likewise, it is better to be explanatory about the reasons he cannot certain things. If she keeps pulling out flowers from the vase, try taking her for a walk instead of yelling. You can use permissible alternatives to bad conduct, like giving her used papers rip instead of valuable documents.
Focus on your child’s positive behavior
Do not focus on the bad ones. Instead, harness the good ones to overshadow the bad. If you child loves to play with her toes, you can tell her to wiggle them under the dining table instead of them hanging their feet on it. Do not be too loud or energetic in correcting them, instead, let them know of that cool thing they do and ask them to do it for you. Make your child feel cared for and loved, by cuddling, petting, and patting.
Learn to pick your battles
It is not every time that you need to blow up or go haywire as a result of your toddler’s behavior. Being negative with the “no” every time means your rules need some reevaluation. There are some things not worth the diatribe, like it doesn’t matter if she goes to bed wearing her princess outfit. Let the little things go. That he has refused to wear his boots when you are ten minutes late to a movie doesn’t mean you should begin smacking.
