Getting Your Toddler Dressed

No items found.

When you're feeling disempowered by your toddler's refusal to get dressed, or anything else of the sort, remember this:

Playfulness is a powerful tool. More powerful than even threats or punishment or intimidation.

It guides, it influences AND it builds trust while doing it.

The calmer you stay, the less likely you are to trigger more resistance by passing on your frustrated energy.

And no, you can't do this all the time, nor will it work every single time, but it's well worth having it in your parenting approach tool belt.

Good luck out there people. Toddler will power is no joke.
