There comes a point in every child’s development where they start to test their boundaries. Whether it’s around bedtime, food, playing well with others, or dozens of other scenarios where they’re expected to act a certain way, chances are they’re going to take a chance to see what happens if they don’t do what they’re told.
The good news is that toddlers, whether they act like it or not, typically want to know what they are and aren’t allowed to do. Boundaries and rules provide structure and predictability, but only when misbehavior is met with consistent and well-explained consequences.
