Toddler Talks: Why is "No" Her Favorite Word? Understanding, Respecting, and Responding to Toddlers' Behaviors
Young children discover the world around them through their play. Why does a child dump his bucket of toys over and over? Why does she want to play with her food, rather than eat it? Why has he become so clingy? And why is "No" her favorite word? Come and learn about the young child's search for autonomy and independence. Respecting and understanding a toddler's unique stage of development allows adults to have appropriate expectations and makes teaching toddlers a rewarding experience.
