How To Build Up Your Toddlers Spirit

There is plenty of negativity in the world. When your toddler interacts with other children or starts school, he will discover negativity. While you have your toddler at home in your nurture and care, there are several things you can do to build your toddler’s spirit.
1.First of all compliment him or her no matter how small the action. Toddlers love compliments. For example, if your toddler wants to help you clean around the house you might “thank him or her” or you might say, “You are such a big help to me.” You might say, “That is a great idea, you are so smart.”
2.Next compliment your toddler for being who he or she is. Let your toddler know how he or she contributes to the family. Allow your toddler to help dust the furniture or help you vacuum the floor. Remember it does not have to be perfect. You know we sometimes beat ourselves up, well toddlers might do the same thing. Tell your toddler he is so handsome, she is so pretty. They need to hear that from you. They can never receive enough compliments from you.
3.Next be sure to not be serious all the time. Have you noticed how toddler’s will naturally laugh at about all most anything. Add some laughter to you and your toddler’s interaction. Some toddler’s like to be tickled. Use your creativeness to think of activities to get your toddler to laugh. Laughter is very beneficial to the spirit. Children seem to intuitively know this. It takes more muscles to smile than to frown.
4.Next, it is not enough to tell your toddler you love them. Toddler’s need physical affection and touch. Hug and kiss your toddler often. Then just watch how your toddler’s face lights up. Remember you are building your toddler up. You are purposely making plans that will result in a much happier child. When was the last time you laughed and played with your children?
Remember time is one of the most important gifts to give your toddler, because time waits for no one.
Some toddlers need more affection and touch than others.
Always let your toddler know he or she is important to you.
