How to Effectively Look into Toddler Behavior Problems

How to Effectively Look into Toddler Behavior Problems

Toddlers can have a wide range of behavior problems and as their guardians and parents, we need to do something about these troubles.

Little Angels Preschool, the leading provider of childcare services in Chino, California, have had witnessed a lot of this misbehavior.

Here are some of these misconducts and how we, as a childcare facility and a guardian, advise parents in addressing such problem:

  1. Mind on the clouds

    This is probably one of the most annoying acts children do. And yes, we know they heard us. They just do not want to do what we want them to do because they are doing something else. So parents, how do you address this? Do you repeat the requests you said to them over and over again until they respond? If yes, you need to stop. Once you keep repeating your requests, your child will be trained to wait for the next reminder for them to do things. And we do not want that, do we? It will only contribute to making them, lazy adults. But the real problem is that if you do not address this behavior earlier, you might end up doing all the errands you requested them to do. Why are they like this? Your child does this because he or she may not be paying attention to you. And how do you deal with it? Simply let them pay attention. Rather than shouting the errand on the other room, go to where your child is. Have him or her look at you and tell your request. After which, do not go unless your little one says yes.

  2. Self-treat

    While it is cute to see your child’s little feet walk towards the cookie box unsupervised, we need to stop this self-indulgence. We know it may be an act of independence but still, your child does not know how to control himself/herself. They still do not know the essence and value of “limitation.” A lot of children in the U.S. are overweight simply because their parents allow their child to eat what they want. We need to put a stop to this. When your child reaches the treat box, you need to step right in. It is okay to have a cookie or two for as long as it’s not before mealtime (which can spoil their appetite for nutritious food). Set conditions before they eat the sweets. It is not called treat for anything, after all. Self-treat is not only limited to eating candies. It can also be rewarding himself or herself by playing, using the iPad and even watching TV for a long period of time.

Children still need our guidance. And it is our job to mold them into the adult they need to be to become a productive member of our society.
