Toddler Clinic

The toddler years are fantastic. Your baby has transformed into a tottering, toddling bundle of energy.  You’ll notice their words becoming more defined and linking together to make coherent instructions. They’ll be rushing, running and probably falling and crashing as they refine their motor skills. And playtime takes on a whole new dimension with fantasy worlds and make-believe friends.

You’ll also have heard the expression “Terrible Twos” (and Terrible threes or fours for most) where your every suggestion will be challenged, demands will have to be met immedately for fear of instant meltdown, and your once “foodie” baby eyes your cottage pie suspiciously for signs of hidden vegetables. But it’s also a time for you to have fun together.  And through many day-to-day experiences you'll guide the development of their character, build their confidence, instill some social niceties and help them on their way to making friends.


Habits

Overcoming shyness Shyness is completely understandable in a small child. Every new experience takes a lot of processing, and every new person can bring a challenge with them. Most children overcome their shyness after a few minutes or so, but some find it harder to either be parted from you, to share you with another person, or to be friendly towards someone they don’t know or haven’t seen for some time.
