Teaching Your Toddler How To Properly Share

Children are a gift! Many people imagine having children someday, while others receive an unexpected surprise! In any case, there are many decisions to be made to ensure that your child receives the best possible training. Where do you begin? Following is a brief article which will give you some tips that others have found helpful:

For kids who have a hard time falling asleep and remaining asleep, it is advised that you do not allow them to nap. Napping will make them less tired when it comes to bedtime. Rather, let them go to sleep at an early hr even if it means that they will wake up earlier.

Limit the amount of television your son or daughter watches each day. Too much television is certainly bad for your child, mentally and in physical form. It is one cause of childhood obesity, can lead to poor eyesight, and plays a role in feelings of anxiety. Have your son or daughter play with toys or go outside instead.

Even if your ill child begins to show signs of feeling better after a few days of antibiotics, you should follow the doctor’ s orders exactly and finish the span of therapy. If your child does not finish the entire dosing plan, weakened germs may remain in his or system and become resistant to the antibiotics.

Do not feel ashamed if you want to take parenting classes. These classes are made to help parents cope with the strains and difficult decisions that come with parenting. If you take these classes, you are showing that you will be willing to do whatever it takes in order to increase your parenting skills.

Use your smart phone to soothe your baby with noise. You can download a white noise application and then place the phone near your child. This is particularly useful if you are intending for a walk or if your child is riding in the car. You do not have to utilize white noise; there are a wide range of some other calming sounds available.

If your child likes to take their pajamas and diapers off while they are in their crib or unattended, accomplish this neat little trick. Cut the feet off of an old pair of footsie pajamas and put them on your child backwards. It will make it so they cannot unzip them and take them off.

Check toys for safety prior to allowing your toddler to play with them. Look for things like long cords, sharp sides, lead paint or parts small enough to swallow. This is especially important if you have older children in your home. Toys appropriate for a school-age child could be dangerous to a toddler.

Make sure you’ re encouraging good routines from the beginning. Whether it’ s hygiene or behavioral habits, you want to encourage your child to learn the right behaviors immediately. It’ s much easier to teach children good habits right away than to try and get them to unlearn habits to learn different ones.

Hopefully, the article above offers given you some helpful tips to use on training your own children. There are so many decisions to be made while raising children. Remember, that children are a gift, expected or unexpected. Enjoy!

    My husband and I were wondering, in your opinion
    what are the pros and cons of having pets in a house with small children?
    pets such as hamsters, dogs, cats, ect…

    Our opinions differ slightly:

    Being raised on a rescue farm, my father had me around all sorts of farm animals from a very young age, even as a toddler
    As soon as I could walk, I was following my father around the barn watching him and helping with what I was able to help with…whether that was fetching water or holding a can of feed while he checked the hen’s nests for eggs…
    Of course I was supervised with the chickens and the dogs and other all other animals until I was old enough to understand that I needed to wash my hands after touching them; I also was supervised in handling of the animals and only allowed to handle them in an age appropriate manner
    And as a result I’d like to think that I grew up more responsible, more compassionate as a result

    My husband on the other hand had a very limited number of pets growing up, most of which were not in his care even when he grew older
    However, as married adults, we share and love our fur-babies; we have 4 hamsters and one cat, all of which he plays with and cares for just as much as I do. I often catch him sitting in the play-pen with one fur-ball or another when I wake up in the middle of the night.
    Man, he loves those little fluffies!
    But at the same time he worries that having pets around small children might be a problem. He worries that having furry pets, like a dog or a cat might make our child more prone to asthma. Or that a pet like a hamster might carry some disease and transfer it to our child…

    Now, I feel that if properly monitored that keeping pets would be beneficial to a child. The extra dirt around might even help boost their immune system (you don’t expose them to things like germs when they are young, they are more likely to have a poor immune system as they grow older).
    He worries that having pets around will make them ill.
    We do however agree that pets would be an excellent way of teaching responsiblity and compassion…
    We also feel that having pets is a good way of teaching about death, (its how my dad did it).

    so whats your opinion?
    what are the pros and cons of pet ownership for parents of small children?
    including health risks/benefits and emotional risks/benefits?

    (just to clarify, we’re not fighting, just trying to find a comprimise and curious as to what other parents opinions might be)
    should probably also mention, we’re pregnant right now; due in January
    also forgot to mention,
    I’ve been working with the Humane Society for most of my life, since my father owns a rescue; I also have worked as a professional groomer and am currently taking courses to become a veterinary technician (graduate in 3 years) so proper animal care would not be an issue

    What would you do if a 13 year old kid threw a screw driver at you?

    The screw driver was thrown in a fit of rage while the child screamed at the adult to turn off the movie camera. The adult was filming the kid’s temper tantrum when the kid wouldnt get off the computer to go to bed. The kid’s anger grew violent and he pulled open a drawer and threw it, and the contents, to the floor. Then he threw a screw driver at the adult.

    The child sees a counselor for his behavior.

    Hi, I’m thinking of getting a French Bulldog & I’m curious…about how long (on average) do they take to house break? Is crate training/rewarding the best method, and what age can I start expecting a Frenchie to begin growing out of puppyhood? I have a 6 & 2 yr old, so I don’t want to get a dog that’s too young.

    Thank you for your answers & do tell your experiences with this breed…if you have any!! ;)

  • vanvark83:

    my baby is 21 months. we don’t use any physical discipline, but my child hits, shoves and grabs other kids. what to do?

  • Jamal:

    and how do I know if I’m singing in the correct way

  • skillz:

    I love to sing, it’s really my passion, and I hope to become successful with it one day. A lot of people have told me that I’m talented in that trade but I sound horrid when I record myself, and I have a terrible pronunciation of my ‘s’ sound that I can only hear on video, and I’ve been failed to improve. Tomorrow is my first lesson (I’ve been singing on my own for about 3-4 years) and I’m very anxious. I’m afraid I’ll make the instructor deaf xD. Do people who can’t sing take singing lessons? Will my teacher help me improve on my pronunciation? Any other advice? I’m also wondering if it was possible for me to improve in a bit less than six months. I’m obsessed with Les Miserables, and I will be a freshman in the high school next year, where we will be performing it. It would really mean a lot to me if I got a big role, and I’m hoping for Gavroche because our district has no upcoming freshman boys willing to try out. Thanks so much!
