Parenting Thoughts: Toddlers Need Some Building Up Too

The formative years for a child are the most crucial to their development. From newborn to about severalmonths old, there is really nothing more than the basic needs as well as love and care that your baby needs from you. As they grow older, they require more attention, more love, discipline and encouragement. Being parents, our responsibility begins to grow. With all these changes that your little toddler encounters, life can also wear them out. Toddlers need some building up too, just as we do as adults. It is your job as a parent to help them.

1. Offer Quality And Quantity Time

2. Give Small Chores To Accomplish

4. Praise, Praise, and Praise!

5. Make Eye Contact

This will strengthen your bond with your growing toddler as you incorporate positive and responsible parenting.

“A woman that builds her home, is someone that God calls wise. (Proverbs 14:1)”

After having had 2 toddlers, one current and one almost-toddler, every single point on that list is spot on! Our toddler now needs it all and in giving it to him–he just thrives! Love this!
