Keeping a 2 year old out of mischief!

My littlest man of the house is gorgeous, but a bit of a challenge.  So what do you do with a little boy who won’t play on his own? He is a people person, always preferring people to toys. He may have crawled and walked late, but his vocabulary is amazing. At just 2 years and 3 months he speaks full sentences, sings songs and tells stories that begin with ‘Once upon a time’ and finish with ‘The End’.

When you are trying to teach four other children, do washing, cooking and general house duties, how do you avoid whinging and tantrums?

You keep him with you as much as you can and involve him in as much as you can.

Then you tell the other kids to take him away and go and play with him.

 

He really is a very blessed little boy.
