Coping With Those Terrible Twos And Troublesome Threes - Articles Surfing
The parenting of toddlers can both be very pleasurable as well as challenging at the same time. What you need is lots of endurance and heaps of tolerance. Not only is your toddler full of energy, you also need the energy to carry the child around. We know how insistent toddlers can be to be carried around even when they can walk.
Making Your Home Safe
With toddlers around, you always have to be watchful and sometimes you have to have eyes in the back of your head. If it's not worrying about them bashing their heads open against the coffee table, then it is them pulling on the tablecloth with all the cutlery and dinner plates coming crashing down on them. From the time your child starts to stand up and take a few steps, you will need to keep track of your child. By nature toddlers are inquisitive and they like to investigate things. If you do not watch out, your kid may pick up something and put it is his or her mouth or tumble down the stairs.
Creativity and vigilance go hand in hand with parenting toddlers. If it is small enough and it can be moved, then it goes into the mouth. Make sure that you childproof your home. Remove all things that may cause harm to your toddler.
You cannot really detain a toddler in one safe little corner of the house. You should make sure that he or she has enough space to play around without really letting him or her have access to something that could be potentially hazardous.
Creating a Play Area for Your Toddler
A safe play pen or activity gym is essential if you want to work from home while caring for your toddler. You could buy a specialized play pen from the stores, or you could create a safe area in your home where the toddler can play while you attend to your other duties.
