Call me crazy, but I actually love the toddler age! Yes, there are days where I want to pull my hair out or close my bedroom door, but I love watching my children grow during these monumental years. The toddler years are such a time of incredible growth and learning. If you think about it, they learn so much from the time they are 12 months old up to 36 months old! As I’ve been playing with my toddler lately, I had a thought come to mind. And I believe it’s such an important one, which is why I wanted to share it with you today.
Do you ever think about how we have to teach our children everything? I mean every. single. thing. we have to teach them! From the time they are born, we have to teach them how to sleep and eat. Then as they get older, we not only teach them academics, but we teach them manners, respect, and how to obey. Whew! That’s such a big task! Since we are our children’s first and most important teacher, we need to really teach toddlers to do this important thing: listen to our voice.
So I challenge you. If your toddler doesn’t respond to your voice, then take the time to train them. I promise you, it will make a HUGE difference! And if you’re looking for more idea for teaching respect, make sure to check out this post.
