Getting Your Toddler to Listen

Get on her level. Either squat down to her level or pick her up so you can look her in the eye.

Be clear. State your message clearly and simply. Your child will zone out if you harp on topics too long.

Follow through - quickly. Don't make threats or promises you won't keep.

Reinforce your message - follow up your verbal statement with other kinds of messages. When you say "eat your lunch", show her you mean it by sitting on the table yourself or eating beside her.

Give warnings - before you try and take her away from a very enjoyable activity, let your kid know that you're leaving in a few minutes.

Realistic instructions .

Motivate.

Model good behavior.

Great tips. Would be nice if adults gave the same respect to each other. I work with many elders who sometimes have toddler like needs and it's important to give the care and patience needed.

Kidney disease is developed in many means. In diabetics, it's acquired simply because the kidneys worked too hard to filter out the sugars and starches and were not able to get rid of waste products from the blood. Eventually, just like any organ that is overworked, they shut down.

"Spare the rod, spoil the child." Though this is true...the rod is the rod of last resort. I agree with you when you say that you get down to the child's level and state your message clearly.

We sometimes underestimate just how intelligent our kids are. We give excuses and allow them to misbehave because "kids will be kids." If that is true..why then are some kids more behaved than others and aren't we really secretly wishing our kids were like them too?
