Dealing with Inappropriate Behavior
First ask yourself:
Remember the age of child
Do they know it’s wrong?
Is it unintentional misbehavior?
Hand-eye Coordination continues to improve
can zero in on small objects & pick them up
By 1: Pick up with thumb & forefinger
By 2: doorknobs, pick up things off floor
Height and Weight
Rate of change is slower than infancy
More difference among children –
influenced by heredity and environment
Growth slows somewhat compared to infancy
Toddlers – where does the
name come from?
are they developmentally appropriate?
means it is suitable for the child’s
age, ability, and interests
When choosing toys or activities…
“Give a man a fish
and you feed him for a day.
Teach a man to fish
And you feed him for a lifetime.”
How does this idea relate to caring for children?
What factors might interfere with a caregiver’s
desire to teach self-care?
Which type of motor skill?
Physical Growth & Development from 1-3
Which type of motor skill?
GROSS MOTOR SKILLS
Use and control big muscle groups like back, legs, shoulders, arms
Ex. Walking, jumping, throwing
FINE MOTOR SKILLS
Use and control finer muscles
of wrists, fingers, ankles
- Increased dexterity*
Ex. Coloring, painting, eating
Motor Skill Development
Quality of Toddler’s Teeth affected by:
Proportion and Posture
until 2 – head, chest, abdomen same circumference
Arms/Legs (fastest) lengthen = improves balance
by 3 – more balanced, straighter
By 2 1/2 = half adult height
@1= brush daily
@2 = supervise them brushing on their own
@3 = brush with fluoride toothpaste 2x a day
@1 - caregiver bathes child
@2 - helps child
@3 - supervises child
-comfy -easy fasteners
-safe - durable quality
-easy to care for
***have to be physically ready
need language skills to be successful
Bowel control then bladder usually
Don't rush it!!!
According to Erikson's theory...
Toddlers are experiencing the struggle for autonomy (what does that mean) versus shame & doubt.
How can caregivers help promote a child's independence?
Affected by stress, fears, family lifestyle
@1 = naps
@ 2= p.m. nap
@ 3 = p.m. nap easing to none
Transition to "big" bed is BIG deal
Feeding Toddler Tips
Preferences change daily!
Food should never be used as reward or punishment
Avoid/alter choking hazards...popcorn, grapes, hotdogs, hard candy
Medium temps - no extremes; careful w/microwave
Set good examples - food habits formed early
@1 = encourage self feeding; finger foods, using spoon, sippy cup
@2 = fine motor skills improving so...fork & spoon, eat together but let get up when finished
@3 = full set of primary teeth so..chew most foods
still cut meat/tough food
How do I know how much to feed a toddler?
Provide a variety in texture, shape, make it interesting and fun

How many words are in a typical two year old toddler's vocabulary?
Have you ever seen a child age 1 to 3 behave in a way you disapproved of?
What did the child do? How did the parent respond?

EMOTIONAL DEVELPMENT of TODDLERS
What is it!?!
General opposition to the world
Desire for independence
Realization they are their own person
“Toddler’s Rules of Ownership”
build up leads to tantrums
release physically - kicking, holding breath
~1 = separation anxiety
older toddlers = dark, etc
don't dismiss, be supportive
peaks around 18 months
cause: don't understand there is enough love and attention for everyone
LOVE, AFFECTION, and EMPATHY
-foundations are made for child to show love and affection later in life
-parent/caregiver is first love, then expands to siblings, others
-by two they can put themselves emotionally in someone else's shoes
How to promote and protect:
remember that toddler's believe what you say!!!
help them feel successful - master skills
avoid unnecessary correcting/adjusting of child's efforts
****Remember the importance of adequate sleep!
Think back to your very first friendship. If you don't remember, maybe you have been told about it.

Parent's shouldn't be concerned until adolescence
How would you deal?
Avoid Ineffective Techniques:
Reasonable limits should:
Keep children from hurting themselves, others, property
Be few, clear, repeated often, and word positively
Be fair, age appropriate, and beneficial
Intentional or Unintentional???
Set a good example/role model
Tell children what is expected
Use positive reinforcement – a response that encourages a particular behavior
be specific and notice ASAP
recognize small steps
help child take pride in actions
use encouragement that matches the child
What is your personal
opinion of each? What approach do you think you would use as a parent?
Guidance – using firmness and understanding to help children achieve self-discipline
Self – discipline – the ability to control one’s own behavior
Leads to development of a conscience – an inner sense of what is right
Parent tells child what to do,
child’s responsibility to do it
Children have some independence
Have a choice within rules
Children have wide freedom
May set their own rules
so many challenges ...
