There are so many things we need to teach our toddlers, such as how to put on their t-shirt and how to brush their teeth, but we also need to teach our toddlers how to wait.
Waiting is challenging for our young children, because their developing brains haven’t grasped abstract concepts yet. This means that they can’t fully appreciate what will happen if they actually DO wait patiently. They just don’t have self-control yet.
How's everyone sleeping at your house? Recently, I sat down with Shelly Perkins and Bill Bevins over at the Lite98 studios to talk about stages of sleep and how to set up a great sleep environment. Check it out!
Did you know that nearly 50% of adults in the United States are believed to be shy?
Why are people shy? It is a normal, adaptive response to a potentially overwhelming social experience. By being somewhat shy, children can withdraw temporarily and gain a sense of control. Generally, as children gain experience with unfamiliar people, shyness wanes.
Did you see the news? Those extra hugs and quiet moments with your children can make a world of difference. An article came out recently that said “Nurturing Moms May Help Their Child's Brain Develop”. That makes sense, doesn’t it?
