Expecting again? It's not easy for young kids to understand the idea of a brother or sister on the way. Presenting your child with a baby doll is great preparation for the big event.
Sharing is hard for young children. To avoid meltdowns during playdates, put away the toys your child is most attached to until the guests leave.
Too many toys can be overwhelming. Rotate the selection of toys available to your toddler or preschooler.
