MODELLING GRACOUSNESS FOR YOUR CHILDREN

  There’s a parenting question that comes up perhaps more frequently than any other. We seem to be able to wrap our heads around how to respectfully set limits, offer choices, acknowledge their feelings, understand the differences between natural and logical consequences, even calmly support them through tantrums. But when push comes to shove, there is one thing that stumps us: “What do I do when they simply refuse to do what I am asking them to do?” I would reword the question, actually.  Don’t get me wrong, I hear you.  You’re asking what to do when your kids refuse to pick up their toys, put their clothes on, brush their teeth, clean up a mess they made.  I know.  i would still reword it.  I hear the words that you are asking.  And after they go through the filter that is oh-so-handily inside my ears, the question looks a lot more like:...

MAKING THE TODDLER YEARS TERRIFIC - 5 TOP TIPS

Toddlers are fascinating little beings. They can go from laughing to crying in a split second, and so can their parents. The technical definition of a toddler is a child between the ages of 1 and 3, though some would consider this stage to extend to age 4. Toddlers’ brains develop at a rapid pace. Within a couple of years, most toddlers learn to walk, run, jump, ride a tricycle, climb and, yes, fall. They learn to talk, make associations, build, hold a crayon, feed themselves, play with toys, listen to stories and use their imaginations. The toddler stage is filled with fun and new experiences, but it can also be challenging for children and their parents as the little ones learn to communicate their wants and needs. Toddlers are really just trying to figure out: Am I a baby or a big kid? They go back and forth between...

Choosing Safe Toys for Toddlers and Preschoolers

From our screw driver toy, pop beads to our flower toy and doctor kits - Our toys have all been appropriately tested to US and AU standards! Check out this article so you know what to look out for when choosing your next toys! Toys are an important and fun part of every child's development. But they can come with risks too. Choking is a hazard for kids ages 3 or younger, because they tend to put objects in their mouths. So it's important for parents to check out their children's toys and supervise when kids play.   What to Look for Here are some general guidelines to keep in mind when shopping for toys: Toys made of fabric should be labeled as flame resistant or flame retardant. Stuffed toys should be washable. Paint on any toys should be lead-free. Art materials should say nontoxic. Crayons and paints should say ASTM D-4236 on the...

Pop Beads in the Evening

I’m going to be honest. Evenings in my house are anything but relaxing. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say I’m in same boat as most parents. And with us single parents, well, if you know this particular handshake of doing twice the work in half the time, pull up a stool and we’ll have a glass of wine. I’ve been thinking a lot lately of savouring memories. Elizabeth is getting so much older and Joseph’s so big we’re close to wearing the same size shoe. I want to sit and relax and memorize. Instead, I rush and get frustrated and then zone out. Every now and then, though, there’s an evening to make the rest melt away. Last night, it was brought to me courtesy of Pop Beads. Yes. Pop Beads. I’m talking about those silly, yet fun sounding, plastic bits that put together create...
