Parents of Toddlers and Pre-Schoolers: 7 Universal Laws
1. The Law of the Beast
As parents we need to keep in mind that we are raising our teenager while we raise our toddler. They are essentially the same beast.
2. The Law of CPR
Having little to do with cardiopulminaryresuscitation, the law of CPR states that we need to be Consistent, Resistant and Persistent with our kids.
3. The Law of Words
Our little ones need to be taught to "use their words, not their hands" when dealing with conflicts.
4. The Law of Mine
In the world of a young child everything is mine. If I am playing with it, it's mine. If you are playing with it, it's mine. If I played with it yesterday and go bored with it, and you play with it today, it's mine!
5. The Law of Sharing
It's very important to teach our children to share. At the same time, it's just as important to understand that asking a small child to share their toy is like asking one of us to share our car or house!
6. The Law of the Team
Each parent brings a unique set of skills to the job of parenting. The goal is not so much who is right, but how do we form the best parenting team we can form. As I like to say "we don't have to think alike, we just have to think together."
7. The Law of "Solid Walls"
"Have you ever walked thru a solid wall?" Of course not. But what if one day you tripped into a solid wall and went right through it, unharmed? Wouldn't you be tempted to try it again? It's the same with parenting- when kids get it that mom and dad are "solid walls' when it comes to managing behavior, the less likely they are to try to walk thru you.
