The Tips And Tricks Of Raising Toddlers

A parent of a 20 month old and member of the NYC Dads Group attended a parenting discussion at the 92nd Street Y Parenting Center and blogged about his positive experience. He left the event with a lot of tips, many of which he shared on NYC Dads Group blog. Such as:

image“...hitting and spanking doesn’t work. it shows kids that it is okay to hit and hurt people. they will learn more from what you do than from you say (actions speak louder than words!)

reinforce positive behavior and try to ignore or discourage unsuitable behavior. “DISTRACT & REDIRECT” - offer substitutions and distractions in a positive way when possible

the limits you set should be clear, consistent, and as few as possible

make your environment as child-friendly as possible so you don’t have to say “no” all of the time

toddlers don’t like big and abrupt changes, so give some advance notice when you will be changing an activity. Try to motivate them to the next activity by talking to them as you begin: “we’re leaving the park in a few minutes’” and then, “let’s see what we can have for dinner.”

Read all the tips and tricks he learned here.
