You’re left feeling, “uh, what the heck just happened?!”
These types of moments are not too surprising with our still-developing toddlers, and if we can understand this toddler behavior with a developmental lens, parenting becomes a heck of a lot easier, so much less irritating, and much more enjoyable for us.
But maybe you’re still left questioning yourself: what on earth do I do in this situation? How should I handle the “I want help but I actually don’t want help” scenario?
My main advice here: direct and clear communication is key.
Let’s talk about that now. Let’s head to the show.
In order for you to bring ease to your parenting, in order for you to not lash out, get frustrated, or blame yourself for your toddler’s behaviors is to understand your child’s behavior in terms of development. Looking at behavior as science and looking at behavior with the developmental framework is what I dive deep into within my coaching sessions.
