Toddler Tricks – 88: Stop Talking

Problem: You’re talking again. And again and again and again. It’s not your fault. You’ve been programmed. You know that why you answer one question, another is coming, and then another, and another after that. You’ve done this dance so many times that you can even anticipate the odd tangents your child’s questions will take. So you just cut them off at the pass. However, the more you talk, the more the kids have as fodder to take issue with. The more you talk, the more likely you are to incur the illogical toddler wrath of doom. And the more you talk, the less likely it is that you’ll know which one of your ridiculous statements set them off.
