Sometimes the best of our children or grandchildren get into what we adults would call ‘bad behavior situations.’ Sometimes it seems we’ve tried everything to straighten it out — but the bad behavior continues. Here is some interesting on-line reading to ponder over and to maybe give you some fresh ideas or concepts to try if you have a little one you are working with.

Today’s radio commentary by Michael Josephson isn’t on his website yet. – It was about instilling ethics and building character in the very young by example and struck me as a topic for my blog tonight – but this story is close. – Or maybe today’s been such a bad day that this was the lesson and I don’t remember any more!
Here are some other interesting links to read up on how to help your toddler develop a good character:
ERIC Character Development: Encouraging Self-Esteem & Self-Discipline in Infants, Toddlers, and Two-Year-Olds

Most important is what your toddler sees you doing – actions speak louder than words – and whatever you do, your toddler wants to do, too!

I taught my daughter to read when she was three. Now she has a three year old and she wants to teach him to read. I think we started out just reading her favorite books over and over again and later we got workbooks to do, too. I did find some interesting websites that have suggestions on how to go about it now:
The Well-Trained Mind
Reading Buddy 2.0
Succeed to Read
If you have a suggestion, feel free to add a comment!
