Hi, I'm Bill Corbett, founder of Cooperative Kids and author of the award winning book, "Love, Limits, & Lessons". The question is, what top 10 questions moms might have about their toddler. The first 18 months of your child's life may have been a piece of cake after you got used to it. But now, she's a toddler. I've come up with the top 10 questions that typical moms of toddlers might ask. The first question is, is my child delayed if she's still not talking by the toddler years? A lot of pediatricians will tell moms to remain calm, but see your pediatrician. Question two, is how do I teach my child how to share? Good examples and plenty of encouragement when she does share. Question number three is, what do I do when my child hits another child? And I'll tell you real, it means play time is over. And they don't know how to say, get her out of my space. But basically you want to keep that play time very small. Now, question four is, what do I do when my child hits me? Pay close attention to what caused that hitting to be triggered in the first place. Question five is, how do I help my child make friends? Easy answer, set up plenty of play dates with different children. Question six, why does my child hate diaper changes? No child enjoys that, use redirection to get through the process. Mom question number seven, how to get my child to drink milk. I'm telling you what, there's more calcium in broccoli than there is pasteurized milk. And question eight is, how do I get my child to let me brush her teeth. No child is going to allow you to do that very easily. Make it fun, as fun as possible. Question nine of many moms is, how do I get my child to give up the bottle? The answer is gradual weaning, change them off that bottle. And finally, the last one, question number 10, what discipline should I use with my toddler? The answer here is very firm visual boundaries and limitations.
