Helping Toddlers Transition
Ever notice how all toddlers tend to fight and tantrum when cleaning up a favorite toy, turn taking with a friend or get buckled into a highchair? These all represent a transition for your little one. Toddlers do not learn how to control their impulses and to develop self-control until later in their third year of life.
The part of the brain that children use to stop themselves, the pre-frontal cortex, is just starting to develop at age 2. In any transition, you are asking that your child stop what they are currently doing (and enjoying!), start a whole new activity or routine, and typically the new activity is something that was not their idea!
If you notice that transitions are beginning to become a struggle for you at home with your young toddler, there are many strategies and tools that you can use to make these less stressful for both you and your child.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
