How to Teach Your Toddler Manners
For those toddlers who tend to speak before they think (which can make for some difficult moments)!
Can Toddlers Learn Manners?
Toddlers understand a lot more than we give them credit for. They can understand practically anything if it is expressed at a level that they can relate to. The clue lies in spending the time necessary to help them grasp the concept of manners until they feel confident with it. And it’s never too early to start. Formal teaching of manners is usually started at about one year, when your toddler can talk and communicate. Setting the groundwork can begin much earlier; for example, using a stern tone and facial expression when a child displays ill manners such as snatching or throwing food at the table. Bear in mind that it’s a lot easier for a grown child to be polite if it is ingrained and automatic, which only happens over time.
