Toddlers’ and Preschoolers’ development is exciting to experience and often exhausting. In this library, we’ve shared some ways to help manage emotions (theirs and yours!), create routines (a powerful tool) and discuss ways of inspiring your little ones.
- Young children react strongly and tend to have “meltdowns” – sometimes it’s predictable but other times, it’s just not! Learn why your child so often displays intense emotions and the behaviors that go along with them. There are lots of options for how to respond in helpful ways during these difficult times with your young child.
- Routines are powerful tools. They bring you and your young child closer and reduce power struggles. Routines help little ones predict what comes next, trust that you will meet their needs, and feel more confident. Transitions between activities can be challenging and routines ease those difficulties and help children learn. Routines also decrease behavior corrections and increase cooperation in your child.
- Parents of young children strongly influence their child’s future school success through play and other kinds of social interaction. Play helps children to develop curiosity about the world, take initiative, develop problem-solving skills, as well as apply focused attention and persistence to tasks. Your interest, questions and comments help build your child’s capacities for future success as a student.
