Toddlers and young children can be hard to handle. They have the attention span of a fire crackers and will likely be all over the place. If you don’t supply them with a fair amount of distractions, they’ll drive you nuts. In order to keep yourself sane during this period, you’re going to need something that will keep the kids hushed up in a corner. Today we’re going to present you with some ideas that’ll turn those living balls of energy into the sweet angels you want them to be.
Television. Sitting them before the television is the perfect way to keep them still. You can even put on educational TV. If that doesn’t work put on a Disney movie or Star Wars. Something that they can really get themselves hooked on. This will give you the time you need to take a short nap or prepare a meal.
One thing that kept us a bay as children were video games. We’d be sat in front of the Super Nintendo for hours on in. It was the perfect way to assure my mother that’d we be secure. Maybe it isn’t the healthiest way to go about things, but it will work.
One of the most popular methods by parents today is giving them a smart phone. If your kid is going crazy, just give them the phone and sit them on the couch. Given how much the internet has to offer, they’ll be quiet for hours on it. It isn’t the most recommended solution as the internet isn’t a completely safe place, but if you’re looking for some peace and quiet, it will do the job.
You can also buy yourself sometime by letting them play around the neighborhood with their friends. As a child we used to be outside for hours, running around our neighborhood or hanging out in a friend’s backyard. Toys are also a good method of keeping them to themselves in the room.
