Once your baby starts walking, your baby is officially a toddler! This age range is usually between 12-36 months. Your adorably agreeable baby who usually smiles will soon learn to shake her head and say no! Between sudden mood changes and lightning fast saves from trouble, toddlers need lots of love, attention, support, patience, and engagement. Distraction with a new toy or activity or simply taking them out to blow off steam can make your toddler days smoother.
An interesting and helpful book to read on toddler behavior is by Tovah Klein called “How Toddlers Thrive”. The book tells stories of how their parents cope with their challenging toddlers (which toddler isn’t challenging?) and tries to explain how the toddler mind works, with helpful tips. This insightful book is a must read for any parents with toddlers.
