However, correction also means to teach, and pre-toddlers and toddlers are capable of learning basic cause and effect consequences through gentle correction and re-direction from approximately 9 months of age.
This can be done through encouragement, and it can be done by using age-appropriate consequences; but it should not be done with punishment. I believe this concept is easily applied when guiding and teaching your child to maintain a positive attitude. As parents, we have the power to use consequences to encourage and grow a positive attitude in pre-toddlers. Pre-toddlers are capable of much more than we often give them credit for. So why wait to reach a certain age before guiding and teaching? Starting early enables parents to train now and build on that teaching over time, rather than re-teaching later.
Teaching your child to have a happy spirit and positive attitude will make a dramatic difference in your day to day life from the early days and for years to come.
Positive attitudes feed off one another. If I have a positive attitude and teach my son to have a positive attitude, then our attitudes will feed off each other, creating an exponentially more positive environment both in and out of the home. Jameson is often recognized for his happy spirit.
Some of this may be innate, but I know that there is also a good part that is due to our nurturing and encouragement of attitude. Jameson is far from perfect. One way to develop a positive attitude from the beginning is to approach your pre-toddler when he demonstrates a good attitude. Let me explain. When your child wakes from sleep, go to him during a moment he demonstrates a good attitude. Sometimes I wait outside the door for a few brief minutes to see if J will settle a bit. I may sing a song and smile at him to encourage him to have a happy spirit.
He is usually laughing and smiling within a few minutes, often times even less time. Does this mean you should let your distressed child cry until he is happy? Definitely not. However, if my son is whining or fussing, waiting a few minutes and offering the opportunity for a happy spirit can truly go a long way in encouraging a positive attitude. You also tend to use this idea when getting my son from independent playtime or out of a highchair or a car seat.
For example, Jameson recently starting fussing and protesting over independent playtime. Using this technique, I made an effort to encourage a positive attitude before picking him up. Within about a week he was back on track loving and enjoying independent playtime.

This really helped encourage my son to have a good attitude. As parents we can also discourage a negative attitude in our pre-toddler.
I recently wrote about this in my post about helping children cope with runaway emotions. If your child is whining or fussing because of a boundary or a correction, you can provide reassurance without rescuing your child.

This is what I like to call reassurance without rescue. My final suggestion for nurturing a positive attitude in your pre-toddler is to lead by example and maintain a positive attitude as a parent. Children are always observing and watching us as a way to learn about the world. If you are negative, angry or grumpy all the time, your child will quickly pick up on this and start believing this is how people should act.
So what are the take away messages here?

There are many ways to teach your child this important skill, and one of the most important ways is to be a positive parent yourself. I write about my crazy parenting adventures, discovering happiness in motherhood and navigating the ups and downs of military life. I spend my days re-heating coffee while chasing my kids around the house. Hang around for a bit and join the fun! That is awesome.
I wish I had read this a few years ago. But I have also been concerned because I see parents playing with their children and having their children imitate them. I disagree with that method completely. I agree, Sarah, we need to act and behave how we want our children to behave. And being gentle is important. I think we can teach obedience effectively without using harsh methods or even spanking. I think redirection and avoiding power struggles helps immensely.
Thank you for your thoughtful feedback!
How to foster a positive mindset in class
I totally agree with this. A babies brain is developing every day and I think we can start to mold them for correct behaviors very early on.
We have no idea what they can process or not. Thanks for stopping by April! I definitely agree, starting early can really make a difference in the years to come! Crying is the language of babies who have no other way of expressing themselves. When we leave a child to cry and comfort themselves what we are actually telling them is that we will not respond to their needs. Science and medical studies have shown that this not only increases anxiety but actually damages the frontal cortex of the brain.
I was a child of this method and at 36 have been in therapy for over a decade thanks to my childhood. I urge you to perhaps find some scientific studies and psychological assistance before advising parents that these methods are good. Hey H.
