Clear some room on a counter near the sink, have your child lay down, and then run the faucet over his hair and skin. If your child is afraid of having their head underwater, or does not like water poured directly on their head, this will making washing their hair much less stressful for everyone.
Transitions can be hard for any preschooler. An abrupt switch from on activity to the next can induce stress, and it will end in a melt down.

You can make a natural teether by putting carrots, pickles or a cucumber into a mesh teether to soothe a child who is teething. When the object has a taste, your infant will gnaw longer. The more your child chews on the item, the quicker they will cut their teeth and ultimately feel better.

phrases can work well at harmonizing your family. Instead of saying “Don’t hit your brother,” say, “Touch other people gently.”
Stop often when driving long distances with toddlers or young children to stave off boredom and crankiness.
