Teaching children how to be productive, and independent has a positive effect now and in the future.Starting at the age of 2 we can begin to teach the important lessons of life and set structure for our children to follow. Start with small things like turning book pages during story time. This gives goals and accomplishment feelings. Allow your child to help at dinner with the rest of the family.Also let your youngster pick what vegetable it will be that night. This will eliminate vegetable or no vegetable problem too. Your child will feel included and important as a family member. When it comes to potty training, relax. Let your child take the wheel, you just show them how to drive as much as needed. Have your child king or queen of there play land. At the end of the day, the loyal subjects must return to their homes.
- Give your child praise for their efforts when they try to complete something on their own.
- Assign small tasks they can complete during everyday activities with you.
- Give them space to sort out their feelings before stepping in when they have an issue with another child
“offering a variety of foods at mealtime doesn’t just increase the odds that your toddler will find something she likes to eat, it also gives her that grown-up feeling of choosing what she wants for dinner, just like adults do”
