Getting Your Two Year Old To Listen To You [AUDIO]
Seems like yesterday he began to crawl, walk, say his first words, and now he’s at the stage where he thinks everything is his, and won’t give you the time of day unless he wants something. The terrible two’s are here and all you want is for him to listen, even if it’s for just a second.
This morning on the FUN Morning Show I asked our listners what would be the best tactic to get our little boy to listen. He’s very focused and almost zones out when he’s in his imaginative world playing with his toys. Every other word is “no” and you have to call his name 17 names before he even makes eye contact.
A lot of the feedback was to reward them if they acknowledge you. Others say to take the toys away until they realize that they’re not listening and then give them back when they do. I know every child is different, so if you could tell me what’s worked for you during the terrible two’s, you’ll make this Dad a little happier.
