Your toddler spends much of the day following you from place to place. And why not? You’re fun and smart, and your day is full of interesting activities! Turn the tables and let your little one lead for a change. Having a chance to lead will boost your toddler’s self-esteem and gives him a chance to impress you with his cool moves. They will feel important and valued when they gets to be the boss and sees you following them.
It helps if you start the game to show him how it’s done. Begin by marching through the house (or bunny hopping, or twirling, …you get the idea). Ask your toddler to follow you and copy your moves. Now tell them it’s their turn to lead and your turn to follow. Let them decide if or when it’s time to switch turns and follow you again.
Your Toddler Follows You Around All Day. Turn It Around And Let Them Lead!
