Reasoning with Your Toddler

Wondering why you can’t seem to reason with your toddler? If your child persists in behavior you don’t like or actions you’ve said “no” to, reasoning isn’t likely to help.

A toddler will hear your explanation, but not understand what you mean.

Remember, your child thinks primarily of himself at this age and often lacks the self-control to stop doing something you’ve said “no” to. It isn’t deliberate; it’s developmental.

If unwanted behavior continues, distract your child with something else or remove her from the situation.
