Parenting advice to manage your toddler better
Being a parent, you’d like to spend time playing with your toddler. But don’t go overboard; just maintain a time limit that you’ll spend with your child, as because the baby needs to stay on his own for some time at least. This will help you train your baby to stay away from you during a specific time within which you too can carry out your work.
You need to allow your toddler to do certain things on his own. If you’re ready to help him whenever he’s having trouble doing something, you’re probably communicating the message that he can’t do it on his own. So, you’re actually not helping him understand his ability to do a work. So, let your toddler tolerate some struggle at least.
As a parent, you need to be consistent while dealing with your toddler. For instance, maintain your daily routine with the toddler. This means, you should take them for bath, let them have their meal and go to bed at around the same time everyday. Also, be consistent in your behavior toward unpredictable things done by your child. This will help your toddler become disciplined and prevent him from misbehaving quite often.
You need to encourage your toddler to eat different kinds of food and not just chicken and fries. Sometimes, your toddler may insist that he won’t eat the food but you need to keep insisting so that he gets into the habit of eating it. Being a parent, you have to show him that you’re enjoying the food. This will push him into eating the food he seems to dislike. However, avoid making a fuss over this issue; just try and make him understand it’ll do him good.
Finally, learn to handle tantrums of your toddler. Don’t consider yourself to be ineffectual parents when your child doesn’t stop the tantrums even though you’ve scolded him. It’ll take some time for him to get rid of tantrums and being a parent, you need to handle such things with utmost care.
