Who’s child has a fascination with a TV show? Does your child have a favorite TV show? Domonic does he loves play school
I remember growing up this TV show was on and I grew up with it to, I don’t mind it to be honest you can actually learn from the show

There’s a bear in there
And a chair as well
There are people with games
And stories to tell
Open wide
Come inside
It’s Playschool

Toddler Moments 02

We all want that well behaved child that doesn’t run a muck does what he/she is told and listens well, I have found that reward charts work great and they are great incentives for children and encourage good behaivour

Reward charts, or star charts, are a powerful way of:

  • encouraging behaviour you want, such as cleaning teeth without fuss
  • discouraging behaviour you don’t want, such as hitting
  • rewarding your child for practising new skills, such as staying next to the trolley when shopping or putting all the toys in a box when asked.

Though lets be reasonable they don’t work all the time, they have worked for myself with 2 out of the 4 children that i have, though in saying that one isn’t quiet old enough yet to start using them for,

my 2 oldest children loved stickers and also being allowed to come to the shops with me to buy a small toy, so the charts worked great, if they filled the charts in they allowed to have stickers and a toy, if they didnt get enough on the chart i would then explain why their not allowed to come with me and buy a small toy, 9 times out of 10 it worked

Below is what i think would be an appropriate chart for a toddler

Though i am not saying that you HAVE to use this chart I’m sure you would be able to make one of your own or find one that best suits what you are after,

And like normal what i write here is just my opinion, every person is different and as we all know all children are different this might work for some then might not work for others, i do encourage you to find a outlet that will best work for yourself and your child as at the end of the day we all want our children to be well behaved and good 🙂

We all know of that horrid noise, Yep thats right that horrid time wheb your toddler decides to start screeching or that annoying high pitch squeal that they do.
If you haven’t yet been blessed enough to have a child then the best piece of advice I can give you is to buy a pair of ear plugs.
If you have been blessed to have a child then you know what I am talking about…..

If the toddler needs help its a high pitch squeal
If the tiddler is finished playing with a toy it’s a high pitch squeal
If the toddler is tired it’s a high pitch squeal
Pretty much if the toddler wants anything or wants to do anything it’s yep that’s right a high pitch squeal

And after a couple of hours of this  it sounds like nails on a chalkboard

Things could be different for other parents though after raising 3 children through this stage and now my youngest has reached this stage  it’s now ear piercing to me
