Our sweet little babies grow before our very eyes. And before we know it, we have a little toddler on our hands! It happens in a blink of an eye! A dear friend of mine gave me some great little tips once that sometimes work really well at the toddler stage. Some of the advice I took and some of it I did not. The best thing is to figure out what works best for you and your family and your little one! You’re their mama… you know better than anyone what they need!
Just in case you are looking for a few tips, I will pass along a few!
Have One-on-One Time
Try to give your toddler 5-10 minutes of just one-on-one time with you each day! This is so tough when you have lots of little ones, but if you snag five minutes to read a book just you and one of them, it will mean so much!
Ask Your Toddler to Help You
They love this. They love little roles and jobs that make them feel big and important. It’s also a great way to take 10 minutes to clean the kitchen for the afternoon while also involving them. Even if it takes a bit longer or isn’t done perfectly, this will help build their confidence!
Practice Areas That They Struggle In
If your little one struggles with running off when you drop their hand, then practice in the safety of your backyard! Practice helps!
Give Yourself Grace
Us mamas, us parents -- we need to give ourselves grace!
Compliment them constantly. Be positive. Shower them with love. Be silly and have fun!
