This is a very normal child developmental stage called separation anxiety. Your child's learning to be independent but it agitates her to have you leave.
Before leaving, let her know ahead of time what to expect. Always let her know how much you miss her during the day and how you look forward to seeing her after work. Toddlers are very egocentric at this age, so it helps her to know that she's important to you even when you aren't with her.
When you say good-bye, try not to delay leaving. It's good to teach your child to become more comfortable with good-byes. Give her a hug, keep it short, and let her know when to expect you back. Come back when you say you will so she can trust in your word.
There are two reasons why your toddler is resisting getting some rest although he's clearly exhausted:
· He/she has an entire world of new things to explore; he/she's afraid that naptime will let him miss out on those things.
· He/she's beginning to recognize himself as a separate entity so refusing to nap is just one of the ways he'll practice this independence.
You should try to stay calm if you face this condition because nap times will be less than the days your toddler was a baby. There is no magic solution that can force your toddler to sleep. Try creating conditions that allow sleep to overtake him. For example:
· If possible, get him/her outside in an area where she can run, jump and roll around just before lunch.
· Tell him/her it's quiet time and involve her in a relaxing activity to remove the power struggle over sleep
· Establish a routine to get him on a predictable nap schedule
· Make sure your toddler falls asleep on his own at night so he'll be able to do so during the day
As kids begin to grow, their lust for repetition can seriously begin to annoy their parents. We are all amazed by how kids can watch the same video over and over and over without tiresome.
Children’s love to repeat a task or activity hundreds of times tirelessly is a means of satisfying a psychological need within them. They need to grow, and the only way they know how to is to keep repeating an exercise.
Toddlers repeat activities for the pure joy of mastering something. Repetition is their way of reminding themselves of what they can do and enjoying that excitement of completion all over again.
Parents can use this ritual when it comes to easing situations and conditions where they face toddler's natural resistance. Because toddlers feel more secure and comfortable when they can predict what's going to happen, following a strict routine can keep things calm and get your child relax before bedtime, mealtime…etc.
It may take up to three months to potty-train your child, and it's important to be patient and supportive throughout. If you've been trying for three months without success, your toddler may not be ready — wait a few weeks and try again.
Starting potty training during a stressful time in your child's life, such as a move or around the arrival of a new baby in the house
No matter how many times you hear your parents tell you that you should hurry up and start training, don't get concerned. Research suggests children can't voluntarily control the muscles for their bladder and rectum until they're at least 18 months old.
Continuing to push potty training when your child obviously isn't intereste
It won't accomplish a thing to get angry or penalize your toddler if she has any of the common problems kids have while potty training. As much as you can, respond to messes and other challenges calmly.
No, unless there is risk of physical danger. If you always intervene, you risk creating other problems. The kids may start expecting your help and wait for you to come to the rescue rather than learning to work out the problems on their own. There's also the risk that you — unintentionally — make it appear to one child that another is always being "protected," which could promote even more bitterness. By the same token, rescued kids may feel that they can get away with more because they're always being "saved" by a parent.
