When your kiddo gets the good old case of the liabetes. They just can’t help themselves and they are so cute when they lie. Bastian has type 4 of the liabetes LOL! He lies about things he doesn’t have too. At first I would get mad. Then I had to step back and think wait; this is a “TYPICAL TODDLER” thing. It was time to do some research…. Though it’s not worth punishing your toddler when he/she embellishes the truth, you can gently nurture their instinct to be truthful in ways that make sense at this age. When Bastian tells me the truth I encourage and congratulate him for coming clean. He likes to be funny so I make being truthful comedic. By doing this I realized he feels more comfortable telling me the truth without fear of getting in trouble! How do you cure your toddler’s liabetes?
Bedtime behaviors are tricky and can range but all are rather normal and not special. When they are tired and want to go to bed you are their comfort. So naturally they are drawn to you when it’s close to bedtime. You have to remember the task at hand and not let the cuteness take you over. Don’t worry their bodies are failing them.
Preparing yourself for battle because you know it’s about to go down! It’s bedtime and it’s when you receive the most love of day. They are so hungry and so thirsty. They want to show you everything and they need you the most. Do fall for it… it’s a trap!
