Age 3-5 Years
Not a baby anymore, not even a toddler, your little one is a Preschooler -- what is often called the Wonder Years. And wondrous they are, as your little one gains the ability to manage herself and control her emotions -- most of the time!
Want cooperation? Connect with her, and make your routines fun.
Want a preschooler who goes to bed easily and doesn't have potty accidents? Make sure you meet his needs for security.
Want a kid who talks instead of hitting or tantrumming? Develop his emotional intelligence by empathizing and talking about feelings.
