  • What do toddlers need to learn?

    Have you ever asked yourself this question? Toddlers are ALWAYS learning! When they are playing they are learning! When they are interacting with friends or even watching adults, they are learning!

    Often new parents (and even more experienced parents) want to know what they are supposed to be teaching their kids and how they can help them better. As parents, we want to help our kids be successful! It is hard to know when to start guiding kids and expecting more of them too. I share a lot of simple activities for toddlers and toddler parenting tips, but today we're going to dive in a bit deeper.

    First off, most importantly, toddlers need to learn how to navigate life successfully with their families and friends! We want them to be happy and have great relationships. Those take work!

    Communicating, making friends, and being able to get around and use their bodies are all really important skills that don't happen overnight. In some cases, kids seem to pick up these skills by osmosis and other kids REALLY need more structured help from parents or even specialists. Each kid is different!

      Each toddler will develop at a different rate, but the most important thing to notice is that they are developing new skills and learning. If your child isn't moving forward or seems to be struggling, it is totally ok to talk with your pediatrician or a specialist you know. I always feel like it is better to be cautious than kicking yourself years down the road for not asking for help soon enough.

        Toddlers need to learn how to communicate using their body language and their words! They will start out with a word or two and eventually can use full sentences! Some toddlers will also use sign language to help them as their words develop. I love these 5 simple ways to help toddlers develop language and also think reading together daily is critical! Kids learn so many new words and ideas from books! As toddlers communicate better, they are able to express their wants and needs better which often helps them feel less frustration and more success. The ability to communicate also helps them create positive relationships with their friends and family!

          Toddlers need to learn how to use their bodies to move! Developing their big muscles (gross motor skills) can help with balancing, walking, running, jumping, bouncing balls, climbing, etc. Developing their small muscles (fine motor skills) can help with more complex tasks like zipping, buttoning, scribbling, drawing, opening things, and eventually writing! Toddlers can develop their motor skills through a variety of play-based activities as well as getting out in nature and playing at playgrounds and parks often. Some parents also like to get their kids involved in Parent & Child gym classes, dance classes, or sports. I put together a weekly park group with some friends so that we get out and get kids moving a lot!

            Most toddlers play alongside one another (using parallel play) or they play independently and interact when they both want the same toy. During the early years, parents can model appropriate social behaviors and teach toddler learning how to take turns and be gentle with their friends. Some toddlers will pick up on these skills quickly, while other children might continue to need support to be gentle with friends as they move into preschool and early elementary school years.

              Toddlers can begin to learn simple songs and nursery rhymes. These teach them how to play with words, recognize patterns, and develop rhyming and rhythm skills. As toddlers are exposed to books, they will begin to recognize letters and pictures and start identifying concepts of print while they read with adults or look at books independently. Older toddlers also begin recognizing alphabet letters, words, numbers, colors, and shapes in their environment. There are many PLAY BASED activities that parents and caregivers can use to expose children to these concepts in open-ended and creative ways. Kids are naturally curious and learn so much through play!

                Hello. You can always try influencer marketing to achieve this, and it’s very effective when it comes to promoting anything online. I’ve been using a Personalized Father’s Day book in promoting my business where I sell second hand products for a while now, and the returns are rewarding for me
