  • Once again Fabulous post!! You nailed it on the head! I would only add get outside and take walks, enjoy nature and give lots of hugs! #2 is my favorite!!!!!!! The Kindergarten Chick>

  • Thanks, Amanda! I totally agree with your additions! Maybe I should have made my list “the top 10.” :)

    I love #4. As a toddler they are so eager to help. I’m hoping that eagerness continues and hangs on through childhood as we have given him special tasks and opportunities to help. My 17 month old brings the dog bowl to the garage when the dog is done eating, puts his dirty clothes in his basket, moves chairs from the table so Mommy can vacuum, moves clothes from the washer to dryer and wipes his high chair tray with a rag. All things he wanted to help with on his own and we just let him.

    Definitely second all the outside time. Nature has so much to offer all of us! And those hugs too!

    What a great list!! Family meals and reading are the most important in our house — I think, through those, many other things fall into place :)

    I must say, explaining in great detail what the plan is, either at a restaurant or the park or anywhere helps tremendously with avoiding tantrums and meltdowns! I am not a mother, but I frequently have my nephew, and we are typically eating dinner or just out. I started doing this when he was at the stage of understanding plans. The first time I had this idea, him and I were going to a semi-quiet restaurant and before I even unbuckled myself or him in the car, I explained our dinner plan like it was a casual conversation, and I had him repeat the plan. And it went GREAT!
