Teaching Your Toddler the Meaning of "No"

When teaching your toddler anything, it's important to know their language and what makes them tick. The same is true for teaching them the meaning of "no," which many consider a very important command. In fact, teaching your toddler the meaning of this word can keep him from getting hurt or worse.

According to pediatricians and other experts, toddlers respond better to verbal commands when they are followed up by action. When it comes to toddlers, actions really do tend to speak louder than words! Understanding that physical follow-through helps communicate the message is key to successfully teaching your toddler the meaning of "no." It's a good idea to note, however, that the age-old method of slapping hands to teach a toddler "no" is not generally recommended by experts these days. 

What Kind of Follow-Through?

Experts recommend physical follow-through and behavioral follow-through. For example, if you say "no" to your toddler who is about to climb over a table, back up your firm "no" with physical removal of your toddler from the table. You may have to repeat this, and it's also recommended that you redirect your toddler to something else after the "no." Make sure you praise him when he engages in the "right" activity, and change your voice to firm and stern when you have to repeat the "no" and remove him again.

Toddler Pool Safety Tips

One of the mistakes that many parents make is thinking they can simply keep an eye on their toddler and know his or her whereabouts at all times. While adult supervision is crucial to toddler safety, we're all human, and no one is the perfect supervisor. And toddlers are fast! One moment you see them and the next you don't.

In fact, some sources report that the majority of toddler pool incidents happen when an adult is supervising. Life happens, so relying on your powers of observation alone is not always enough. That's why experts and multiple sources recommend combining adult supervision with other precautions. Here are some tips for keeping your toddler safe around swimming pools this summer.

Never Assume

If you are at a group event such as a party or family reunion where there is a pool, it may be tempting to assume someone else is watching your toddler. This can be a very dangerous assumption. Make sure you or someone specifically designated is watching your toddler at all times.

Maintain Barriers and Boundaries

Toddlers grow and change. The low fence that kept your crawling baby away from the edge of the pool may not work once she begins to walk and climb. You will need to re-evaluate your barriers constantly, updating them to keep up with your growing and changing toddler. Four feet, or 48 inches, is considered the minimum height for a toddler-safe barrier around a pool. Check locks and make sure they cannot be reached and are toddler-proof.
