Toddlers Likes and Dislikes

Hi friends! It’s certainly a fun time talking and spending time with your children. Today, we will discuss on an interesting topic on Toddlers Likes and Dislikes. Toddlers are at an age group where they are discovering their world around them in a more concrete way. Slowly they start form strong preferences and start throwing their opinion as and whenever they can.

·        Remember as parents, you have to stay calm and patient with your toddlers’ behavior.

·        Toddlers generally show strong likes and dislikes especially with clothing and food. Try to be positive towards your child. Even if your tot is throwing a tantrum, try to rephrase the situation in a positive manner and explain the after effects. Eg. If your child is insisting to wear party dress at home, say that the dress is extremely pretty and lovely, but if you wear at home it may not look the same as it should. Don’t directly say that you are not supposed to wear party dresses at home. Try to reason out, your tots will understand better, or build a story around her favourite cartoon character to explain.

·        There are times when children throw out a statement like “I hate you”. They are expressing a strong dislike. Children perceive that you have power to change the situation or environment and direct their frustration at you. Hate is an extreme form of dislike. Always step back and try to understand the hidden meaning behind the statement. Defuse negativity by rephrasing the sentence. I know you’re upset, but I love you. I know you are angry with me. Can you tell me what you want?”

·        Parents are role models and perfect guides of their children. Try to acknowledge your child’s preferences and make them always feel loved. Most of the times, its either due to negligence or fear, kids start throwing tantrums. Try to be a twilight and a guiding star in your children’s life. I know it isn’t easy to be calm and cool all the time. So, disperse when you are running high on emotions and stay alone. Talk to your child only when you are in control of yourself.

Enjoy parenting and have a gala time with your children!!!

  1. Teach Your Child to Read Today!

    Reading is one of the most important skills one must master to succeed in life. It helps your child succeed in school, helps them build self-confidence, and helps to motivate your child. Being able to read will help your child learn more about the world, understand directions on signs and warnings on labels, allow them to discover reading as an entertainment, and help them gather information.

    Learning to read is very different from learning to speak, and it does not happen all at once. There is a steady progression in the development of reading ability over time. The best time for children to start learning to read is at a young age - even before they enter pre-school. Once a child is able to speak, they can begin developing basic reading skills. Very young children have a natural curiosity to learn about everything. They are naturally intrigued by the printed texts they see, and are eager to learn about the sounds made by those letters. You will likely notice that your young child likes to look at books and thoroughly enjoys being read to. They will even pretend to behave like a reader by holding books and pretend to read them.

    At what age can you start teaching a child to read? When they're babies? At 2 years old, 3, 4, or 5 years old, or wait until they're in school?

    If you delay your child's reading skill development until he or she enters school, you are putting your child at risk...

    Did you know that 67% of all Grade 4 students cannot read at a proficient level! According to the National Assessment of Educational Progress, of those 67%, 33% read at just the BASIC level, and 34% CANNOT even achieve reading abilities of the lowest basic level!

    There is a super simple and extremely effective system that will even teach 2 and 3 year old children to read.

    This is a unique reading program developed by two amazing parents and reading teachers, Jim and Elena, who successfully taught their four children to read before turning 3 years old. The reading system they developed is so effective that by the time their daughter was just 4 years 2 months old, she was already reading at a grade 3 level. They have videos to prove it.

    Their reading system is called Children Learning Reading, and it is nothing like the infomercials you see on TV, showing babies appearing to read, but who have only learned to memorize a few word shapes. This is a program that will teach your child to effectively decode and read phonetically. It will give your child a big head start, and allow you to teach your child to read and help your child develop reading skills years ahead of similar aged children.

    This is not a quick fix solution where you put your child in front of the TV or computer for hours and hope that your child learns to "read"... somehow...

    This is a reading program that requires you, the parent, to be involved. But the results are absolutely amazing. Thousands of parents have used the Children Learning Reading program to successfully teach their children to read.

    All it takes is 10 to 15 minutes a day.
