Guest Post – Raising Toddlers in Love

Today I have a guest post that draws attention to some simple parenting knowledge that sometimes gets overlooked.


I have raised two children that have passed the toddler stage, but I remember it well. I have several cousins who are just now going through this stage with their children. I have been doing my best to dole out advice; this is not from books or from my vast knowledge. This advice comes from trial and error, things that worked and things I found out absolutely did not work. I want to share some of these with you because I know how very difficult things can be when you have very young children. Hopefully I can pass on something that will help.

I had two very different children, a girl who was as close to the perfect child as you can get, and a boy who had to touch everything, demanded all your attention, and wouldn’t take no for an answer. I don’t understand the reasons why; what makes one child so different from another when they are raised identically? I suppose it’s because they are individuals…hmmm. We sometimes don’t think of our children as individuals, we think they are an extension of ourselves.
