My daughter's behavior was in far contrast to my son's disposition. Now I can see how a road trip with a toddler can quickly turn a sweet child into having a case of road rage.
When two and a half rolled around, it became increasingly frustrating for the twins because they realized how much they were not able to communicate their wants and needs.
I feel like all four of my kids had a show they predominantly obsessed over. So I don't want to complain too much about my two year old's love for Blaze because I know firsthand IT COULD BE WORSE.
He took time to admire the sky. "Airplane, Mommy, Airplane," he said. In this moment nothing else mattered. It took me away from of all of thoughts of "what if." Do I have dinner ready? What about the ants? What about the ground being too warm? Never mind all that.
If I may, I believe Montessori is the perfect solution for parents who’ve chosen not to put their children in preschool or Mother’s Day Out this fall, who want a laid back yet enriching home environment, don’t want to miss out on learning, and want to truly engage with their child in a meaningful way.
But right now, as the mother of a two year old, I feel defeated at times. What I know to be true and what I feel are two different concepts. Nevertheless, I have faith that this too shall pass.
Use eye contact, physical touch, and unplugged quiet time to help develop a closer connection with your child.
