Preschool Teaching Tools For Toddlers

Last week, we made the decision to withdraw my son from daycare.  I am sure that he will miss  his friends at daycare; however, he will get plenty of social interaction several times a week at church.  He is excited that he is going to be able to spend all of his time with mommy.  I asked him if he wanted to go to “Mommy’s Preschool” and he…

Many parents often times pressure their children to start potty training their child before they are fully ready.  Potty training before your child is ready can cause unnecessary stress for both you and your toddler.  With all three of my kids, I waited until they were ready to potty train before I even attempted it.  A…

NOT Painting with Tennis Balls

  This was going to be a post about our experience painting with tennis balls. But there's not much to say, because we never got very far. 

     I put some paint on a paper plate and Kay rolled the tennis ball in it, then bounced it hard onto the paper I'd placed on the ground. She bounced it one more time, then said, "It makes an ugly design." Then, "Can I paint with my feet?" Does all of our painting projects have to devolve into body painting? Apparently. …

A few weeks ago my son moved to a new room at daycare and every since it seems as if he is throwing more fits and tantrums at home.  I know that there is a stigma attached to two year old children and parents must realize that all two year old’s go through a phase often referred to as the terrible twos.  I never really cared for that name…

Do you remember playing Ring Around the Rosie as a child?  I do!  I remember playing this game when I was fairly young.  When my son came home from daycare a few days ago saying “posies, posies” while grabbing his older brother’s hand.  I was trying to figure out what he was talking about.  My son…

How to Handle Biting in Young Children (By Stacy Hladek)

I recently spent an afternoon with a good friend, who has a toddler.  While we were talking about parenting she told me her son has started biting his baby brother.  My friend said nothing she or her husband had tried is working.  Her son bit another child at childcare this week for the first time

Biting is a behavior that many toddlers display at one time or another.  It can be something that makes the adults feel frustrated and helpless.  There is hope! 

Whenever a child is…

How to Make Time Out an Effective Way to Modify Your Child’s Unwanted Behaviors

My son stayed home with me again today so that he could continue to heal and so that I could make sure that he was fever free before sending him back to daycare.  He acts like he is feeling much better today and his fever finally broke last night.  Thank goodness, I don’t like it when my baby doesn’t feel…

Battle of the Wills

View original post at Mommy Dearest

There's something exhilarating about a good, old-fashioned battle of the wills between myself and my daughter. Partly, I think, because we're very well-matched in this area. She is a worthy opponent. An expert at holding her ground.



But guess what, little one, so am I. Not all the time, mind you. Just when I feel like it. Eliza's the exact same way. Most of the time she does what I tell…

Potty Time

View original post at Mommy Dearest

I bought Eliza a potty this week. I figure we should get her interested in the potty and see what happens. She's always (in her 17 long months of life) been pretty good about making transitions and wanting to move to the next level, so I'm hoping she just kind of figures out this potty stuff on her own. I'm pretty sure she can. I'll just sit back and…

Learn How to Keep Your Toddler’s Artwork off of the Walls and Furniture

A few weeks ago, my husband asked me if I needed anything from the store.  I asked him if he would pick up my youngest son a coloring book because he kept grabbing my pen from me when I wasn’t watching and kept telling me that he wanted to draw.  I took the pen away from him and he was devastated, even though…

Time to Be A Parent

My daughter is a little over 16 months old. Up until now, she's been pretty easy to take care of. She's listened to me when I said no and would get very concerned when I got upset with her. I haven't had to exercise many parenting skills beyond changing diapers and making sure she doesn't die. But the tide is turning, people.



In the last week or so, her reaction to me has been, in a word, horrifying. When I tell her no, she completely ignores me. When I get upset about something,…
