Almost any part of parenthood has its struggles, children cause trouble, they tend to be disobedient, and parents try to reach them, to help them develop in a healthy way, but even listening and obeying everything the parent says is a form of unhealthy behaviour. With so many things to keep track of, it is undeniable that parenthood is an arduous assignment, and it is never over. When your child is on the level of a toddler, he or she is now trying to figure out how the world functions, and with such high degree of curiosity, there are many dangers lying ahead. For toddlers, a world is like a big puzzle, and they want to see how pieces fit in together or whether the pieces can fit in together. It sounds like a wonderful ambition but it is quite dangerous, since they have no idea how electricity can be dangerous, how they shouldn’t mess around wall sockets, or play around hot stove etc. Here are some tips on how to control the out-of –control toddlers.

Always be on a lookout

As it was already mentioned, toddlers can be extremely curious and will not take your word for it when you explicitly say that something is dangerous. Additionally, toddlers can be quite cunning, once they set their mind on something, they are more than willing to follow that plan through. They will wait for a window of opportunity, and start messing with the things they are not supposed to be messing with just to feed their curiosity. It may look cute and funny at first, but this kind of a behaviour will drain you mentally, thus you should always find someone to switch with you, either a nanny or a grandparent, someone who wants to supervise children when you reach your limit. Additionally, you can perhaps demonstrate the dangers of heat or electricity in their weaker form, it would be like a vaccine. It may sound silly but it will not hurt your child, plus it will be able to witness how unpleasant it can be when one is burnt or electrified, only on super miniature scale. If they

end up afraid of experimenting with heat and electricity, you win as parent.

Get their attention

The best way to find some peace is to keep the kids occupied and interested. You can either come up with an alluring game that you can all play, which will hopefully exhaust them so that you can sleep, or you can do something to educate them a bit. You can read a book to them while they are watching closely, and hopefully they will pick up some tricks on how to read. If a book doesn’t grab their attention, you should try with a good cartoon that you can watch together. Select a good and beautiful cartoon, which is in a way a cautionary tale they can relate to. For example, Walt Disney’s Pinocchio (1940) is a great cartoon to play for your toddler. Hopefully, they will realise that being too naïve and too curious can get them in trouble. That is really the whole point, so make sure that the book or the cartoon you select has some sort of moral and educational value.

Monitor their development

As a parent, it is your duty to make sure your children are healthy, but at the same, time teach them that good behaviour is rewarded. Meaning you need to put them on a healthy diet, constantly instruct them to walk straight, incite them to participate in physical activities, and only answer to their pleas if they deserved it. This a classic strategy called “You can have some dessert only after you have finished your vegetables”. Children cannot possibly comprehend just how sugar, or anything taken in a great amount for that matter, can have a negative impact on their metabolism. All they hear is: “You cannot experience the good side of life”, this is why it is so hard reasoning with them. It is your job to protect them first and then to be a parent that they adore, thus being strict, and grounding them from time to time is not a bad thing, it is for their own good.
