Alrighty Moms! Most of us who have had kids have gone from the "Terrible 2's" with our kids to the even worse "Tyrannical 3's" and into the "Freakin' 4's".
Having a 2 and 3 year old myself (soon to be 3 and 4), I am often banging my head against the wall wondering, "What am I supposed to do now?" Then a few minutes later, they are both behaving and having fun. It's rough and although I've learned a lot over the past almost 4 years there is so much more to learn.
I hear a lot of other moms struggling with this age group too because 1.) Toddlers are developing emotionally and don't have the best set of skills to deal with them 2.) They are testing their boundaries 3.) They are learning who they are and are starting to have self-awareness. 4.) They have very little control over their life
I want to dedicate several post to giving and getting information on what you have found works for you and your toddler(s) either in the past or present.
Please share as I know a lot of us moms need as much help as we can get.
There are a few topics that I noticed are the most baffling to moms so I want to post a blog on each one and get as much feedback as possible.
- Bad Attitudes
- Control Monsters
- Daily Routine
- Eating Habits
- Potty Training
- Sleeping Habits
And the bonus:
- Dealing with Feelings of Parenting Failure
(because I've heard it's something most of us deal with)
Let me know if you have any others that you want help with or know a lot about. The articles aren't going to be composed completely of personal conjecture but will have a lot of well-researched thoughts on the topics and your ideas or suggestions.
