    Toddlers Love When You Gossip About Them — And It Works Wonders!

    Toddlers Love When You Gossip About Them — And It Works Wonders!

    Gossip is one of my favorite ways to green-light good behavior. Gossip means saying things out loud near your child, so he overhears. It works so well because all of us (kids and adults) are more likely to believe something if we overhear it than if it’s told directly to us. Gossip makes your praise 5 times more effective. (And it makes your words of criticism have 5 times more impact too.) For example, if a friend says, “You look...

    How to Speak ‘Toddler-ese’: A Talking Style That Really Works!

    How to Speak ‘Toddler-ese’: A Talking Style That Really Works!

    If you were an ambassador to China but only spoke Greek, trust me, you’d have problems! Likewise, talking with your toddler will be 100 times easier once you learn the simple steps to translate your words into his “native” language: Toddler-ese. I discovered Toddler-ese by accident. Like most pediatricians, I dealt with 20 tantrums a day from toddlers who hated being at the doctor’s. Then I began to notice that when I echoed a bit of the child’s upset feelings...

    Teach Your Child to Be More Patient

    Teach Your Child to Be More Patient

    All kids start out impulsive. But, amazingly, you can s-t-r-e-t-c-h your toddler’s patience in just days…if you do it right. Patience-stretching is a superfast way to help grabby tots learn to be patient by expecting them to wait a teensy, tiny bit…then a bit more…and then even more. Believe it or not, most parents teach patience in exactly the opposite way from the method that works the best. For example, say you’re busy and your 2-year-old pulls at your skirt...

    ‘Play the Boob’ to Build Your Child’s Confidence

    ‘Play the Boob’ to Build Your Child’s Confidence

    We all pretend to be klutzes sometimes when we are playing with our kids. It makes them laugh, feel clever and strong (by comparison to their inept parent) and makes them want to be more cooperative. Sound odd? Embarrassing? Unnatural? Well, actually it’s a silly idea that’s super smart and I bet you’re doing it already! Do you ever:  Pretend you’re startled when your child roars like a tiger? Have a little race and intentionally lose? Have a pillow fight...

    How to Make Traveling with Toddlers Easier (Even Jet Lag)

    How to Make Traveling with Toddlers Easier (Even Jet Lag)

    Rebecca asked for medication to help 2-year-old Luke sleep on the long flight from L.A. to South Africa. Her doctor suggested Benadryl, but he neglected to tell her to try a test dose the week before they traveled. This was a big mistake! Luke was one of the many children who get wired­­­­—not sleepy—when they take Benadryl. Rebecca said she gave him a spoonful shortly after takeoff and he cried for 2 hours straight until he fell asleep out of...

    How Having a Baby Changes You: Survey Results

    When we were young and single, we were dying to stay up all night. Now that we’re parents, we’re dying if we stay up all night! If there’s one thing for sure, having kids changes us. The recent Happiest Baby / BabyCenter survey (1000+ parents with babies under 6 months) sheds new light on what feelings and emotions change after becoming parents. After becoming parents, we feel a greater increase in love (86%) than we do any other feeling. Joy...
