A child’s mind is a curious one that is constantly growing. Children are quick to learn and usually know more than they let on. Their first words and first steps are all of huge importance. As parents, we try to prepare them and help them along as much as we can for these important ‘firsts.’
“I neeeeeeed another brownie!”
“It hurts. I caaaaan’t have this seatbelt on!”
“Jordan took the red one! I waaaaant red!”
Ahhhhh. Classic rants of whine country. For many parents, these rants have become the whine of daily life, and it ain’t no Pinot Noir! Preschoolers are especially famous for whinery woes; and tweens? Well, I can confirm they are busted, too.
By the time a child reaches the preschool age of three to five, they have changed in so many ways. Many children are ready to expand their world outside of home and interact more with peers, teachers and other parents.
