Parenting Toddlers • • • •

Children between the ages of 12 months and 36 months are often referred to as toddlers. They are developing at an amazing rate, learning how to walk and talk, opening up huge new avenues of exploration. An important parenting shift needs to take place at this point.

Parenting Toddlers

While you may have allowed your schedule and many family dynamics to be determined by your baby up until now, you’ll need to bring more structure into your toddler’s life at some point. You need to set boundaries on a mobile child and require that your toddler respond to your leadership more than you have in the past.

We have a resource just for you. It's called the Toddler Parenting Toolkit. It contains three posters with growth milestones, one for infants, one for toddlers, and the third for toddlers. These posters provide several developmental milestones including suggestions for spiritual training. In addition it contains some ways to start working with very young children to teach them about God. You'll also receive a booklet we've written called Toddlers on the Move.

You also might want to purchase the full version of Toddlers on the Move, a book we've written especially helping parents understand how to work with toddlers using a heart-based apporach to parenting. By starting to develop good patterns early, you'll be able to maximize your parenting over the years.

A toddler likes to explore and test out new things. You’ll want to contribute to those God-given desires by providing a lot of new opportunities for stimulation while still protecting your child from danger.

Parents have differing approaches to the toddler challenges, but focusing on the heart and character development at this age is important for building good patterns. We have a CD set called Parenting Toddlers that you will find helpful in addressing subjects such as sleeping, eating, potty training, and discipline. This CD set was created before a live audience of parents of toddlers so you’ll appreciate the answers tailored to their specific questions.

As you think about discipline and the growing relationship with your child, you may want to read the book Parenting is Heart Work to understand ways to build good patterns that address the heart rather than merely relying on simple behavior modification.

We are eager to help you as you continue to raise your child. Be sure to pray often for and with your child and teach him or her about the Bible. Spiritual development is so important at any age. So practice now and grow into good habits of spiritual growth in your family.
