Your Toddler: Month 22
March 2, 2017
King of the crib
Your toddler is the center of the universe — his own, at least. Kids this age are rarely great at taking turns and can seem downright inconsiderate. Keep your cool and keep modeling good behavior. He’ll catch on, oh, in a year or so. Also try not to freak if your toddler starts fondling his private parts. This is normal for both boys and girls at this stage and isn’t cause for concern. (If you’re in public, try engaging your tot in another activity that requires the use of both hands.)
[tip] Turn on the TV or have your spouse read a book aloud while you brush your toddler’s tangled hair — distractions are key.
