    Managing Your Toddler's Frustrating Behaviors - Topic Overview

    continued...

    Although you may sometimes feel exhausted, remember to reassure toddlers that you love them and it's their behavior you don't like, not them. Offer plenty of praise and attention when your child behaves well.

    One of the most important parenting tools to use with your toddler-indeed, with children of any age-is modeling behavior that you expect. Children learn from what you tell them. And they learn even more from what they see you do. Interacting with others in a loving, open manner and dealing with frustrations calmly will give your toddler the best model to learn from.

    For more information about behavior issues and how to respond to them, see the topic Temper Tantrums.
