Control is all That They Want:

From a toddler’s point of view they have no control over their food, their activities and their whereabouts. It is parents who are bestowed with all this control and the power to dictate his life. So how does he exert control in his life? It is through what he chooses to wear, what time he decides to sleep, what he actually eats and when to go for toilet. And basically these are the very areas that give trouble to parents in putting up with their children.

They Lack Time Sense:     

Parents fail to understand that kids are not used to being timed, in fact they do not understand its concept. Their brains are not structured to get adjusted to time. All they know about is the present tense. Therefore, when you tell your kid that he is to leave within five minutes all he knows is that he is not leaving just then. So, the next time you ask your toddler just how long he will take- he repeats your words by saying, ‘five minutes’ even if does not take that long. If you continue to use sequential languages like including ‘first’, ‘next’ and ‘then’ in your daily activities your child will gain some idea about the concept time. However, his full understanding about time will take place only when he joins school.

Understanding Their Qualities:

When your toddler tries to act curious, independent, passionate, stubborn or persistent, you tend to get mad at him for all these traits. You may not be able attend a meeting or an appointment simply because your kid is acting stubborn. However, you fail to see that these are the very traits that you would want him to have when he grows up and has to face the world on his own. These traits will make him use his talents for a better tomorrow. You must not overlook them but deal gently with all these traits in him so that they do not go away from him.

Let Them Fall:

As a parent you will definitely want that your child does not have to deal with anything imperfect- bruises, bumps, defeats and failures. What you miss is that only when your child falls that he will learn to get up on his own. Failure is a great teacher and helps every individual to overcome adversity and challenges. It will teach your child to be more flexible and to develop passion for what he loves most.

Happiness Means Much More:

A toddler is the happiest when he is feels most secured. It is not always advisable to make your child happy by giving into all that he wants. At times simple things like commiserating helps in making him understand the importance of being happy without getting something he wants. Make your child understand the importance of adversity and at the same time make him see how you handle it so that he learns about patience and resilience. All of this will later contribute to make him a better man, ready to face the world on his own.
