A Soft Touch

It’s hard to say “no” to your toddler when he or she wants to touch something fragile. Whether it’s a piece of pottery or a new baby, your child will want to touch.

One way to allow safe exploration is to encourage your child to use a single finger to touch gently.

Keep in mind that you’ll have to remind your toddler to keep to 1 finger and a soft touch time and time again—the urge to grab will be strong. But if you keep calm and stick to this approach, your child will reap the benefits of understanding more about the surrounding world.
