How can I get my daughter dress without a fight?
Please,I need some advice.My 2 1/2 year old doesn't want to get dress,change diaper nor wash her hair at bath time.We take forever to get ready to get out of the house.Im phisicaly tired of trying so hard and running around
I tackle my son with his clothes. I let him pick out the shirt he wants to wear, too. As for bath time, he loves it. Have you tried letting her help rub the shampoo in and singing a song while doing so? I know it may sound silly, but it works for my son. I praise him and tell him, "Good job," after washing his hair and brushing his teeth.
Also, getting him dressed has become easier because I make up songs or sing them while getting him dressed and say things like, "Yay, good job! You got your shirt on!"
thank you for the tips ladies.I have to make her get rid of her pacifier first and then start potty training,I'll try them and keep you posted.Good luck with your toddlers too.
Having a potty seat in the bathroom your child uses the most is a great idea. However, expecting them to potty train at 2 yrs old is a bit early. 2 is a good time to start introducing the concept and asking them when they are in the bathroom if they want to sit on the potty. Rushing the process usually brings out unwanted behavior and could produce more behavioral problems if punishment is involved for not going. Your child should be potty trained before preschool and for sure before kindergarten, that is age 4 or 5. For cooperation with dress, I used the closet organizer you can hang from the bar of your closet that has pockets. Generally used for shoes, but I got one with 7 pockets and helped my children on Sunday, pick out outfits for the entire week and put them in the pockets. The top being Monday, Tuesday and so on. That also introduced to days of the week. I am a parent of two adult daughters now and am a clinical social worker with my concentration in children and families. I hope this info helps!
