Parenting Toddlers - Terrible Twos and Troublesome Threes!

Aug 17, 2007
Parenting toddlers can be very exhausting as well as enjoyable. If you are parenting toddlers, you should have stamina and lots of patience.

Your little bundle of joy could be very energetic at times and since he or she is still a bit of a baby, you may need to carry him or her around every now and then. Mind you, toddlers can be heavy and they can be very demanding when it comes to being carried around in your arms all day.

Toddlers are very cute but they are also very challenging to manage. Parenting toddlers would mean you will have to constantly be on your toes and watch out for everything.

From the time your child starts to stand up and take a few steps, you ill need to keep track of your child. Toddlers are very curious and they like to explore. If you do not watch out, your kid may pick up something and put it is his or her mouth or tumble down the stairs.

Parenting toddlers would require you to be very vigilant and very creative. Since your toddler would mostly likely want to taste anything that attracts his or her attention, you should make sure that you childproof your home. Remove all things that may cause harm to your toddler.

Furthermore, since your toddler would not really like it much if you confine him or her in a small corner of the home, you should make sure that he or she has enough space to play around without really letting him or her have access to something that could be potentially dangerous.

Creating a Play Area for Your Toddler

Parenting toddlers while working at home can really be very challenging. If you are working at home and you would like to get something done, you should see to it that you get a play pen or activity gym for your toddler.

You don't really need to buy those pricey gizmos in department stores; all you need is a space where your toddler can keep himself or herself busy. Make sure that the play area is well cushioned so that your toddler will not hurt himself in case he falls. Furthermore, see to it that the play area is securely fenced so that you toddler will not be able to get out, wreck the house and hurt himself.

There is plenty of information about parenting online. A favorite search engine will bring up thousands of articles on the topic. Also, information can be found at the local library or bookstore. And don't forget about asking other parents; this can be the best resource of all.
