6 of 6

They are easily upset by slight changes in routine.

Kids at this age love routines, which give them comfort and make them feel like they know what they are doing. It’s common for them to have tantrums when something goes wrong.

What you should do: Encourage basic routines like bathing, cleaning the bedroom, playing outside and going to bed at a certain time. When routines are broken, be calm and collected while you find a solution, which shows your little one that she too can learn to think on her feet.
