Toddlers need patience, humor, and fair rules
Twos are terrific, tender, trying, taxing, and very, very exciting. As a parent of a 2 year old, these are things you will need this year:
Patience to cope with your child’s mood swings —from very helpful to highly difficult.
Awareness to see that your child is safe.
Loving firmness to apply rules in a consistent way so your child can learn to be responsible.
Humor to laugh at yourself and with your child.
Wonder to see your toddler as the creative, special person she is.
Enthusiasm to enjoy and celebrate your toddler’s new skills and abilities.
