Toddler Parenting Tips and Tricks to Stop Hitting, Biting, and Temper Tantrums
Tip to Stop Toddler Hitting – Watch Your Language!
Here are some quick toddler hitting tips.
When talking to your toddler language is so critical. Positive language is so important. What do you think is more affective: telling your child “Don’t Move!” or telling your child “Stay right here.”
When talking to your child, especially young kids (toddlers), negative language will often give you the opposite of what you want. Instead of telling your kid “be quiet”, it’s more affective to tell them “I need you to talk quietly right now”. Instead of saying “don’t touch this dessert”, it’s better to say “leave this dessert over here by itself”. This is showing your child the proper thing to do rather than leaving it up to them to figure out for themselves.
Start making use of positive language with your child into a regular habit and I’m sure you will start to see a positive affect right away.
