How to get your toddler to behave

See my FIVE tips below …

  1. Whisper, don’t shout … (well I try not to at least…)
  1. Beckon into another room, distraction technique
  1. Get down to their level – they’re only teeny
  1. Then repeat slowly in one sentence that what’s being done is not nice and makes you feel sad or upset (that’s important)
  1. Then get your active little one to count to 10, 20, (we are now on 50) with their eyes closed… start the counting together





The above steps work for me and sometimes I switch up the order depending on where I am…

I find little ones loves to count slowly and this enables slow breathing almost meditational, which helps focus and concentration.
