Terrific Toddlers

Facts and information about terrific toddlersThis is a very exciting time in a child’s life. Your child will be amazing you with how much they are learning every day. Did you know that by 3 years of age a child’s brain has almost tripled in size?

About Behaviour

While your child is building their brain they need to constantly interact with their environment (mentally and physically) and this means testing the boundaries. The whole family can experience frustration at times, and there may possibly be lots of emotional outbursts. You will notice your toddler is learning different concepts and skills such as sharing and social play. This goes hand in hand with short concentration span and limited language to express their emotions. More about Behaviour

About Safety

Your toddler has no sense of danger so will need constant supervision. For example: sometimes refusal to wear their seatbelt or climbing out of the cot, or running away from you in the street. It is important to supervise and teach your child road awareness and other safety rules. Remember, you need to keep repeating the same information to enhance their learning.  More about Road Aware

About Sleep

Toddlers need to have regular and predictable sleeping patterns. Day sleeps will naturally reduce from 2 to 1 to none depending on the child’s individual temperament. Transitions can sometimes mean periods of frustration when the child is sleepy but not tired enough to sleep. Toddlers often experience lots of changes from a cot to a bed, the arrival of a new baby, or commencing childcare.  These can all effect your toddler’s  pattern of sleep. More about Sleep
