When a toddler asks you a question, either it comes out of curiosity or it could be just attention seeking. Whatever is the case, it is always best to feed your child's curiosity and give them undivided attention.
When a toddler asks you a question, either it comes out of curiosity or it could be just attention seeking. Figure out if your child needs your undivided attention. If yes, please give proper attention. In the times of social media and technology all around, a child misses that personal time with parents and so (s)he might be asking questions in an attempt that you pay attention to them.
But Sometimes it is just curiosity. For a few initial years, a child comes across so many things that (s)he hasn’t seen or heard about. So, (s)he will have a few questions almost everyday. It is always best to satisfy their curiosity and never shush them. The problem arises when they ask too many questions which ultimately annoys parents to a limit that they lose patience.
How do deal with this:
Children model their parents the most. Develop the listening skill yourself and then help the child to achieve the same.
Shouting only makes matters worse, be it you or your child.
It's normal for kids to get cranky but as a parent do not lose the cool.
A child is bound to throw a tantrum because who else if not the child. This does not mean the tantrums can not be tamed.
Back answering is not just a misbehaviour of your child. There might be underlying reasons for that.
Most kids are possessive by nature. Observe carefully where there possession ends.
A child will always stay true to his/her nature. Nonetheless, there is always room for changes and improvements.
Nail biting is common not only in children but also in adults. It is important to understand the underlying reasons behind this habit.
A regular habit or not, thumb sucking can cause problems in a child's speech.
Waking up early is always a task but rather than making it a happy start we tend to begin with tantrums.
Children lie when they feel they actions will not be accepted by their parents. Assure your child that you will be there to support them when things go downhill.
Sibling rivalry is an age-old problem and get can be addressed easily if done at the right time.
Knowing the interest of your child will help you guide your child better.
A child is entitled to his/her choices of choosing friends and playmates.
