Are you feeling that your toddler is not a little angel that you are dreamt of before he is born?
Some toddlers are difficult to handle than others. Every toddler behaves bad at one time or other. Every parent is worried about toddler behavior.
Every toddler will have bad behavior episodes but some have more than others.
You have to take steps to reduce your toddler behavior and severity of each episode.
Steps to reduce your toddler behavior:
Show your love! Tell your toddler how much you love him. Show him your love by taking time to spend with him.
How you talk to him, how you spend your time with him, tone of your voice and your body language will let tell him know how much you love him and this reduce the incidents of toddler behavior in bad way. This is the important parenting skill you can use on your toddler.
Help your toddler! Helping your toddler with bad behavior is to have a loving and stable relationship with him.
If you give healthy social environment to grow up for your toddler, your toddler will understand that he should not misbehave to receive attention he desired for. Spend time with your toddler, play with him, read to him and listen to his concerns and worries.
Bad behavior! Bad behavior results in the situations your toddler is not prepared to handle or have skills to handle the situation.
There is no need to worry about your toddler behavior because it is natural reaction for toddlers to opt for bad behavior if they feel threatened, abandoned or receive no guidance about their actions.
Plan for good behavior! Plan for good behavior instead of worrying about the times you normally expected bad behavior. Toddlers generally display bad behavior during adjustment, transition or stress.
Change in toddler behavior can be noticed especially during a move, loss or addition of family member, or if there is an increased amount of stress and tension at home.
How to respond! If your response is harsh, it can trigger more bad behavior in your toddler as he thinks that his actions are getting more attention they want.
You should respond in positive way to your toddler behavior and show him that there will be consequences to his bad behavior.
If you response in a negative way, your toddler continues to throw tantrums. If he finds that there will be effects and consequences to his bad behavior, he will reduce the bad behavior. [Handling Toddler Tantrums]
Realization! Once you implement the consequences immediately for his actions, he will realize and thinks before doing any bad actions.
Parent’s response! Your response can help in shaping your toddler’s future behavior. According to your toddler behavior, you punish or reward him.
Praise or encourage for appropriate toddler behavior. Once he understands that good behavior will have good rewards, he will reduce behaving badly.
