    How to effectively communicate with your child

    The toddler age is a really delicate time for children. It is when the begin to slowly grasp and understand the world around them. Raising your child at that age is a tricky thing to master, with each parent having their own ways of doing so. Here are a few must do's that can help new parents raise their child better.

    Always provide a positive atmosphere:
    It is well known that children tend to replicate the mannerisms of their parents. Providing a constant positive atmosphere in the household can greatly impact your child's external demeanor. Whatever time it may be, always be in a jovial mood and entertain your child. Even teaching your child good manners and day­to­day actions like brushing, bathing, eating and good manners can be done in playful ways that are proven to make them learn faster. When there is a happier atmosphere inside the house, toddlers would automatically reflect that happiness on the outside, while they are in unfamiliar surroundings.

    Be honest:
    Well, you don't have to ruin their fantasies about Santa or the Tooth Fairy, but when it comes to other topics that could have a more realistic impact on your child, it's best to be very honest with them.

    Build a language rich environment:
    If your child hasn't yet developed his/her speech, encourage the development by making a vocabulary friendly atmosphere. Read aloud children's books, play more word games and word gestures that are easy for your child to understand and grasp quicker.

    Don't be too strict:
    Let's face it, toddlers tend to bring out their naughty side at any given moment. Young parents must understand that the naughtiness is just an extra burst of playful energy that needs to be taken out. However, if your child does something that you don't appreciate, do not get angry and aggressive on him/her. Psychologists advise to use the power of words and gently request your child not to repeat the bad behavior. Criticism from an early age can have adverse affects on your child as they grow older.

    Listen attentively:
    It's almost like a new discovery for them, when children start talking. It pays well to always keep your ears in tune while your child speaks. He/she may have interesting things to say that could only help you understand him/her better. Smile, nod and agree, even if you have no idea what

    A nice write up and it has vey clearly mentioned about the tips for bringing up the child properly. Very nice. The author can convert this post into an article submit for approval to ISC.
    Treating them properly,allowing them to express, listening their point are some important points mentioned by the author. I do agree with the author in his views. Parenting is a very tricky issue. The parents should be able to say no to the child if he feels what he is demanding is too high.The parent should always try to see that his ward will be on ground and never loose the ground. If somebody is trying to fly too much he may fell down and may get his legs broke. As such in the interest of the child the parent should be able to say strongly which is correct and which is not correct.

    always confident

    Managing a toddler can be a challenging task, I've seen mothers give up on toddlers during temper tantrums for mobiles and tabs.
    Communicating with toddlers and children need maturity,common sense and ability to judge when to be stern and when to pamper.
    Understanding the needs of the child and spending quality time would be the first good steps forward apart from what the author has mentioned.
    Controlling the child or using harsh words or chiding them for their bad behavior should be avoided especially in the presence of other children and their own friends.

    Good tips given by the author to raise a toddler but these cannot be implemented in all the children. Children are the great observers of mother and if he can teach good things, listen to the child and act accordingly the child can be molded to best extent. Normally toddlers are well behaved when they are single, but when they mingle with others they try to ape other styles and also insists things that is worn and had by other children. That becomes tricky situation and as for as possible the toddler must be kept away from other child . But rearing the children up to the age of 5 is very important and interesting.
