ALL YOUR TODDLER WANTS TO DO IS RUN AS FAST AS HIS LEGS CAN CARRY HIM. IT’S WEARING YOU OUT TRYING TO GET HIM TO ‘CALM DOWN’. WHAT’S NEXT?
A Spend all day at a soft play zone. At least you’ll get to have a coffee. B Wear him out with really physical stuff in the morning, then bring out the sticker books after lunch. C Time to keep him strapped in the stroller. Victory!
YOUR BEST OPTION: B
Toddlers get overtired if you don’t balance exercise with quieter activities. Find what sparks your child’s interests the longest – is it singing, building, puzzles?
