Staying inside all day is a bad, bad idea with this age group and will make time slow until it more or less screeches to a halt.
Most toddlers, particularly those under two, can’t manage lengthy play sessions. While your toddler’s still getting the hang of it, set a time limit of an hour or an hour and a half.
Make family meals a great bonding time for the family. Set your toddler’s place in the family table, and try to make it fun for everybody. Try to talk about fun topics, which your toddler may find interesting.
You may also set up your table in a fun way, so that your toddler is enticed to sit down.
Be direct. Direct requests are more likely to be followed. Avoid asking questions, especially when you are not offering a choice.
For example, don’t say, “Can you pick up your toys” (the answer is obviously no) when you mean "please pick up your toys".
When you hold your baby close and look at a book together, your baby will enjoy the snuggling and hearing your voice as well as the story.
Feeling safe and secure with you while looking at a book builds your baby’s confidence and love of reading.
