SEE THE WORLD THROUGH THE EYES OF A TODDLER
A workshop with Dr. Tovah Klein, AKA the Toddler Whisperer, on the joys and challenges of toddlers ages 2-5, including sibling rivalry and helping with the transition of a new baby.
Seeing the world through the eyes of your child helps shift the way you parent, making life easier and more enjoyable for you and your child. Dr. Tovah Klein, author of How Toddlers Thrive and Director of the Barnard Toddler Center will discuss the developmental underpinnings and why toddlers do what they do.
The toddler years (ages 2-5) are a time when children begin to separate and form a sense of self. As they discover who they are and the world around them, their desire to make decisions and have control escalates. Your child is trying to make their way in the world, and it is not always easy. Having choices, but not too many choices, is important as they learn to navigate the world and to express their desires.
Welcoming a new baby? Dr. Klein will discuss this transition and how it is related to sibling rivalry and bonding for life.
Dr Klein will share insights and strategies for making these tender but tough-at-times years less rocky.
Does your child:
- Act sweet one moment and demanding the next?
- Dawdle and drag out bedtime?
- Use No! and Mine! as favorite words?
- Insist on wearing the same clothes item every day?
- Refuse to say hello or responds with a 'sassy' attitude?
- Ignore your requests completely?
- Insist that only one parent will do?
- Play well with siblings one moment & fight the next?
Dr. Klein will provide tips for setting reasonable limits at this age that help prevent control battles, avoid shaming children and empower both the parent and toddlers.
