Tips from the Vance County Parenting Task Force
Tips on toddlerhood
Take a deep breath. The assault on your house, your personal belongings ... this, too, shall pass. Everything is new and exciting to your toddler and your toddler needs to explore to learn.
Childproof your house. Pack away your treasures, and lock up any dangerous or poisonous items. You’ll breathe a lot easier, and you won’t have to say “no” so often.
Keep the rules simple and few. Kids this age can’t grasp complicated rules. Your goal is to keep your toddler safe.
Table manners can wait. And, so can toilet training.
