Now that you’ve decided to help your toddler with these big emotions, don’t forget to connect with the fun ones, too! “Happiness is often there in the simplest moments of you and your toddler being together,” says Margot. “Just enjoy whatever you’re doing, whether that’s colouring together or walking along, hand-in-hand, swinging your arms and singing.” Easy, right? Well, truth be told, these relaxed moments when your youngster is calm and content can seem like the perfect time to put a wash on or check your phone. ‘Forget the housework!’ says Margot. ‘It’s as important to be with your child in joy as it is to be with him when he’s expressing other emotions. Because, when you are, you teach him that it’s great to feel happy!’ Want to create a moment of happiness to enjoy together right now? Sit opposite your toddler and mirror his movements exactly. Give yourself a tail by tucking a sock into the back of your jeans and ask your toddler to chase you and try to pull it off. Get your toddler to stand on your feet as you hold his hands and walk around. Grab the bubble mixture and challenge your youngster to pop them with different parts of his body—first hands, then feet, elbows and bottom. And just enjoy being happy together!
