The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 180: Getting Your Toddler to Transition to Something They Don’t Like

podcast strategies tantrums Sep 13, 2022

No one likes to do something that they don’t want to do, and that goes for our toddlers as well. 

You don’t like to pay bills, schedule another doctor’s appointment, run to the grocery store, or prep dinner, but you do it anyway, without a fuss, without a tantrum…. Well, at least sometimes. 

Our toddlers, they’re a different story. 

There are a lot of things that they don’t like but they need to do it anyway: going potty, getting dressed, cleaning up toys, heading inside for the night. 

And when they don’t like something but need to do it anyway, this is when you’ll likely see that full-blown tantrum. They’re not as good as you at controlling their emotions. 

So how can we make this easier on them - and us - when they need to transition to something that they don’t like to do. That’s what we’ll be talking about today, and I’ll be giving you specific strategies that you can use to help ease that transition. 

Let's go to the show.
