|Baking is a great way to satisfy those needs to spend time together and learn a little something as well.|
Three happy bakers!
"Feed the meter" says Harvey Karp, M.D. author of "The Happiest Toddler on the Block" as noted in Parents magazine this month. You will
will likely increase your chances of experiencing better behaved kids who are better well-adjusted.
And what parent can't use a bit of that? It's like feeding the meter.
Why? Time spent together while doing things such as cooking, playing, or even household chores will quench your child's much needed desire to spend time with you while allowing you to spend less time later asking her to "behave."
A child's unruly behavior may surface more often if he or she is craving your attention and not getting it.
Next time you have a dessert to make, some laundry to fold, or want to go for a walk, include your child....you'll be glad you did.
Think of it as giving more time-ins and less time-outs. Go to www.parents.com to read more.
Good Luck!! Good Parenting!!
