When it comes to toddler behaviour, have you ever wondered why it is sometimes referred to as the Terrible Twos?
This week, I recorded a podcast where I explain the various aspects of a toddler’s development and why it’s so important for them to be disciplined in the right way.
And no, I am not referring to discipline as punishment or spanking or anything like that.
I mean discipline that builds connection with your toddler; that is loving and nurturing and guides them through a very important developmental stage of their lives.
Positive toddler discipline is so important because it has a long-term impact on their way of being in the world so they mature into healthy and balanced young kids, teens, and eventually adults.
Please listen and share this post.
And I’d love to hear your questions and feedback in the comments below.
In the podcast, I mention that there are a number of excellent books on the subject of toddler discipline.
Here are some excellent books that I recommend. Some of these are classics and are still best sellers!
