The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 112: Is It Normal for My Kid to Take Toys without Asking?
May 18, 2021
Welcome to another “is it normal” behavior series. Today on the show we are talking about whether or not it is normal for our toddlers to take toys without asking.
As a mama of a three year old and a 15 month old, this is a specific situation that I’m dealing with in my own household, so I get it and I feel you on this one.
But what I want to leave with you today are specific ways you can address this situation in the moment when it does happen and what you can do to begin teaching those good play skills. So important!
Okay, let’s talk about our toddlers who take toys without asking. Let’s go to the show.
IN THIS EPISODE:
- Laura Lynn talks about a child’s development to explain why toddlers take toys without asking;
- She shares specific play strategies you can do NOW to begin teaching your child how to share and take turns; and
- She explains how you can respond in the moment when your child does take toys without asking to use that opportunity as a teaching moment.
