Life with your toddler:
dealing with common challenges

Temper tantrums
Tantrums are a normal part of her emotional development. Setting consistent limits, allowing your toddler to make choices, and redirecting her attention can all help prevent them. When tantrums do happen, try to remain calm. Offer gentle comfort without going overboard, as some toddlers will seek the added attention.
Separation anxiety
Your toddler’s worries are entirely normal, and telling her this may ease her anxiety. It may also help to give her advance warning, talk about her fears, and remind her that you have always come back before. When it comes time to leave, staying calm, loving, and confident will reassure her.
Playing alone
This one is easy—just don’t worry about it! Parallel play is the main way young toddlers play together. Seated side by side, they happily pursue their own activities. They are probably having a good time just being close and learning by watching one another! Forcing them to interact simply isn’t necessary.
