One who roams about the whole house, breaks things, trips and falls frequently and speaks a lot. Try to make a guess as to their identity. Well right you are. They are the toddlers. If you have one at home then you will know it best. Don’t you agree that presence of toddlers as if keeps the house alive?
Do you not get enchanted by every act of theirs? Well to remind you, toddlers call for constant attention otherwise you know not what they will end up doing. It is understood that they drive you crazy sometimes and are their grandparent’s apple of the eye.
However you will agree that they bring in a happy atmosphere in the house. However always keep in mind that toddlers need extra attention from you.
You must keep them germ free – As you know, toddlers roam about here and there. They hardly care about hygiene. Thus it is you who will have to make sure that he washes his hand before he takes his meals and keeps himself clean after coming from school or playground etc. He will not understand its importance but you have to take care of his cleanliness.
Give them basic knowledge – Since toddlers are not infants anymore, you must teach them a few things like manners, behaviour etc. As you can see, they have just entered into their growing stage from where a kid starts learning slowly.
Therefore this is the right time to start giving them a few inputs about social behavior, gesture, etc. It is the best time for him to learn how to respect elders, and many such things.
Interaction – As parents you must be patient enough to listen to them. You must also make sure that you maintain a constant interactive process with them so that they do not hesitate to speak when they are in a social gathering. Lack of interaction makes them introvert.
Thus it is almost a challenge to deal with toddlers. Anyhow you should carefully deal with and must bring them up with a lot of concern. You must realize that they are in a very delicate age so their upbringing should be highly taken care of.
