Toddler are babies of 12 to 36 months old. They are called toddlers because they walk unsteadily in this age group. Toddlers are developing emotional, cognitive and social behavior in this age.

Toddler require all the attention because they are in learning process and to develop their sense on worldly things is very important. Moreover, some parents neglect their child and does not give basic training to them, thinking there is a lot of time for toddlers to learn.
Training toddler is hard but it is worth it, when you are in the market or at someone’s house and your child acts well behaved, you would not trade anything for that. Toddlers take time but they eventually learn.
How to train toddlers in a best ways:
- Discipline them:
Kids will always listen to their parents in one way or another. Some kids understand soon and some are very stubborn to understand at all. All parents need to do with stubborn kids are to make them discipline. Discipline is something that comes with hard work. You need to communicate with your child and tell them that they need to clean their play place when they are done playing because it looks dirty and is a bad habit. If they don’t understand and shrug it off, you need to be little strict and reinforce it on them.
- Tell them “NO”:
Sometimes parents get very emotional and let their kid do whatever they want, even though they are making mess. It is very problematic and parents need to tell them
“No” if they are creating chaos. It will develop bit of fear in toddler’s heart and he will gradually accept the fact that whatever I do is wrong. There is no need to let your child spoiled because you love them. Everyone love their kids but kids get out of hands when they are not stopped from doing bad things.
- Treat them with love:
Sometimes parent get too hard on their child and scold them all the time to make them learn difference between right and wrong or to discipline them. But, it is important to know that they are kids at the end of the day and they require your love then anyone. Don’t be harsh on them thinking this is only way to make them civil human. Some kids learn with love more than scolding.
- Develop patience in yourself:
Being patient in this whole process as a parent is no more a battle. Sometimes parents also gets exhausted by repetitive stuff because kids could be stubborn sometimes while learning new stuff. Do remember that this process requires a lot of patience and dealing with patience is a key.
- Toilet training:
While you train your kid for everything new, toilet training tops the deal. It is very important for a toddler to learn this. Deal with patience and tell them to notify you or call you out when there is a need for them to poop. Toddler age is the best age for them to understand them
- Try to be consistent:
When your kid rants for pack of chips or cookies in market, tell them it’s a No, even if they create a scene in the Walmart store. You have to be consistent in making your child learn discipline and it is important to tell them that their every wrong wish won’t be fulfilled. However, if you buy your kid a pack of chips to get rid of embarrassment, beware that next time even if you say no hundred times he will want that pack of chips in any way so try to be consistent and strict about some rules.
- It is a job of two:
Inclusion of both parent is very substantial. Gregory Oliver, a child psychologist at the Henry Ford Health System, in Detroit says “you and your spouse also need to be on the same page when it comes to family rules”. Don’t put all the pressure on one of the partner while you spoil your child with everything and your partner is doing everything to make them disciplined. It includes both of parties not only just father or mother.
Parents need to label their house with chits in which they have mentioned letters or alphabets or new words, whatever they want their child to learn. Learning in this way is very unique and fast process. Kids identify the chits and call out the alphabets written on them. Use refrigerator or any board in which you use glue stick. Use colorful markers to write on chits and label them around house. Play games with your kid to make them better understand the vocabulary, play scavenger hunt and many more games in which their learning process is increased. Pin up pictures on walls and let your kid identify those pictures. It is a very cool act to make your kid understand between things so he will be able to differentiate between them. Use rhymes by singing them not making them watch it on television or mobile sets, but sing it to them so they adopt it from you, before they adopt it from anywhere else.
