What are behavior tips that I need to know on my baby's 15-month checkup?

ANSWER

Your baby is now in their toddler years. Help them learn good behaviors by remembering these tips:

  • Set a few simple rules and stick to them. Boundaries and structure make children feel secure.
  • Give your child choices when you can. And try to talk to her about plans and schedule. Remember, she understands much more than she expresses.
  • Tantrums tend to happen more when toddlers are hungry, tired, or stressed from changes. If your child has one, make sure they’re in a safe place.
  • Distracting or removing your child from a situation can help head off a tantrum.
  • Then ignore the tantrum or hold your child quietly.
  • Try to remember that tantrums are a normal part of development.
