Tips on Listening to Your Child

Listening—it's not as easy as it sounds. It's often uncomfortable to really hear somebody else's point of view (especially if it's your child and she's right and you happen to be wrong.

Position your play equipment so you can see it from the house. A view from the kitchen window, for example, allows you to watch the kids while you cook dinner.

Gadget Guide

If you're going to have a sandbox, get one with a cover that you'll keep closed when your child isn't in it. That way you prevent the neighborhood pets from turning it into a giant litter box, making it a breeding ground for parasites and germs.

Have a Positive Influence on Your Toddler's Behavior

Bribes and rewards, punishments and threats don't work at this age. So if you want your toddler to behave in a certain way, you'll have to resort to trickery (though some might call it "guidance").

Although a home study by an adoption agency is mandatory when adopting internationally, some families choose to do some of the legwork of actually finding a child themselves.
