Thank you from the bottom of my heart of all of your kind comments, tips, suggestions, funny stories and words of warmth and encouragement regarding my post on travelling with a toilet learning toddler.
As I mentioned we weren't only travelling, we were travelling last minute, I was travelling with the boys without my husband (therefore feeling extra vulnerable) and we were also grieving for member of the family who is no longer with us. Gosh, I'm having trouble holding back the tears now. So how did we go?
- You don't have to be a great or even a good parent all of the time.
- Consistency is important. Children need consistency to behave consistently.
- Children need to know (very clearly) what is expected of them.
- A flexible and relaxed approach will help to keep you calm..
