4 Facts You MUST Understand

if you are Ever Going to Effectively Deal with the Terrible Twos or Children Behavior Problems.


 #1. Behavior is driven by Emotion, NOT Logic.

ToddlersThis is fundamental to everything, including understanding toddler behavior. Behavior, for any person of any age, is determined by their emotional state.  Hence, people ACT from their emotions, and they later JUSTIFY their actions with logic. But small kids don’t have the ability to use logic, so they act purely from emotion. Keep this in mind when dealing with behavior in toddlers.


#2. We tend to overuse the word “No” when we talk to our kids.

This causes problems with toddler behavior. You remember the story oToddlersf the boy who cried wolf, right? The little shepherd boy was bored while watching the sheep so he decided to cry wolf and make the villagers come running. Before long, they stopped responding to his false cries. When a parent cries “No” at every little thing, kids stop listening. The parent’s cries fade into the background. Behavior problems in children can stem from this caveat. I’ll teach you multiple ways to get what you want without screaming “NO” at your child – and it simply works better!


#3. To have any chance of influencing your toddler’s behavior, you MUST have rapport first.

ToddlersRapport simply means having an emotional connection to another person. I’ll show you how you can learn LOTS of ways to create this crucial emotional bridge before you deal with children behavior problems.


Toddlers#4. Use positive language instead of negative language.   Language is a powerful tool and there are a bunch of tactics                                you need to learn to create the outcomes you want.



“You Have Changed My Boy And My Life”.  Spoken by one sincere mom-
Chris – I bought your audio course two weeks ago. Let me tell you that you are my hero!  I have a boy who is nearly 3 and he was driving me crazy. To the point where I thought I failed as a mom. I’m only on lesson 6 and my boy is changing in front of my eyes. Your strategies really work and to my surprise when I test them on adults they work too!  Thank you very much. The results have changed my boy and my life completely.

The problems in Talking to Toddlers: The Terrible Twos often start around 18 months. And some children have issues beyond the 3rd birthday.  However, the principles are the same whatever the age of your child.  Consider this – there is only one person you can reliably change and that’s you. But when you make small changes in what you do, the ripple effect can be huge.  And you will see changes in those around you. So, first and foremost, if you want your child to change what they do.  Ask yourself ‘is there something I could change about the way I’m handling this’?  When the parent changes what they do or how they react, it can have very positive results for everyone.


You are dealing with a child that is experiencing everything around him for the first time. However, he doesn’t have common sense and he can’t reason.  His world is expanding dramatically.  These discoveries of touch, shape, color, taste are EXCITING!   Your child is exhibiting normal toddler behavior. He doesn’t have a malicious streak.  Therefore he’s just doing what children do, touching, tasting, seeing, experiencing exponentially!   Children live in a short time frame.  So any management of toddler behavior needs to be immediate.  Don’t threaten punishment when Dad gets home.  So your child needs to get clear messages from you and you need to be consistent.   Kids get confused with mixed messages. Therefore make sure your body language doesn’t give a different message than what you’re saying.  A toddler’s behavior, make it clear that it is the behavior, not the child, that is unacceptable.  No child likes always being  told he is bad or naughty.  In so doing he will determine that bad is acceptable behavior and then your child will act out the script you give him.  Always encourage your child in well doing.
