Keeping Your Toddler Safe

Every day there are more things your toddler can do by himself, from crawling up the stairs to trying to hopping and climbing on everything. Get some tips on keeping your little mover safe.

At this age, your child's movements are becoming smoother every day. She can do all sorts of exciting things by herself. She'll need lots of wiggle time each day, so plan regular outings like trips to the park and walks around the block.

Revel in her independence.  Enjoy the delight and sense of adventure with which your child approaches this new-found physical independence. Remember, however, that it's your responsibility to keep her safe. She can't anticipate danger  at this age, so set very specific, clear rules, such as:

    • "no running in the street"
    • "always hold hands while crossing the street"Vague commands like "Slow down" or "Take it easy" make no sense to your child, so she's likely to ignore them.

Be as clear and specific as possible when you're giving your toddler commands. She's not good at figuring out what you mean unless you spell it out. For example, "No paint in your brother's hair."
