That's why the terrible twos

1 M I L L I O N 😱 This staggering amount of brain wiring is why your toddler goes into an epic meltdown when you wash her favorite pink dress or when you peeled the banana for her #truestory ⁣⁣ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⁣ Every second, connections are formed to help your toddler learn emotions, develop physical capabilities, problem solve, pick up new words, communicate to get his needs met, work on his social skills when little brother was born, control his impulses, develop attachment with his parents… AT THE SAME TIME. ⁣⁣ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⁣ Can we really blame a toddler for his emotional outbursts? ⁣⁣ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⁣ A few weeks back I talked about three things you need to know about your toddler on IG Live: 1️⃣ Toddlers are egocentric. 2️⃣ Toddlers are confused. 3️⃣ Toddlers feel more than they think. ⁣⁣ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⁣ Head over to so you have all the info in 1 page. ⁣⁣ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⁣ In the summary, I help you understand your toddler, shared how to respond when your toddler refuses to share, and words you can use while communicating with your little ones. ⁣⁣ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⁣ Share this by tagging your friends with toddlers! ⁣⁣ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⁣ #olpn_parenting ⁣⁣ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⁣ PS. I have stopped using the terms “terrible twos and terrible threes”. I believe there are no terrible kids, only terrible parents (me included) who are not equipped with knowledge about children’s development. I hope these research backed tips can shed some insights and help you be more empathetic towards your toddler!
