Let me be straightforward, this post is for a specific type of tantrum. We’ve all been there. It’s time for a bath, time to turn off the TV, clean up the toys, etc. What comes next? A tantrum, of course! In the education world, we call this “transition time” and teachers are always looking to speed up their transitions.
If you’re like me, you have spent a lot of time worrying if you are doing everything you can to help your baby reach all those milestones you keep hearing about. FIRST, before going on, I want to make one thing very clear: milestones are simply clues to understanding how your baby is developing. Milestones are NOT the whole picture. If you are concerned because your baby is consistently not reaching these milestones, please call your pediatrician.
