Preschooler Parenting: The Perfect Game Plan for You

A child’s Wonder Years, ages 3 to 5, are full of excitement as the child starts to explore and learn. During this time, the preschoolers learn how to interact with other children and how to think and control their bodies and minds.

keep preschoolers happy and properly developing

Here are some preschool parenting tips to help parents frame a game plan for how to deal with their preschoolers.

Structure

A structure helps kids feel safe. For many preschoolers, the world can be a scary place. That’s why the household should be predictable. Having a regular schedule of fun, food, and then bedtime will help keep children happy and properly developing.

Sleep

Another important parenting tip is to make sure that your preschooler gets a sufficient amount of sleep. Putting your preschooler on a regular routine will help them learn to relax before bedtime.

Emotions

While your preschooler may no longer have meltdowns, their feelings are still developing. Therefore, it’s important that you listen to your preschooler and help them deal with finding themselves in a big world.

Food

This is the time where children may begin choosing what foods to eat and how much to eat. Look to serve your child an assortment of healthy foods. Preschoolers will often choose healthy foods that they feel will meet their needs if you give them direction.

Interaction time

Due to your preschooler’s brain rapidly developing, a large part of your parenting will depend on you having some personal time with the child. You will help your child develop physically and emotionally by building that connection.

Empathy

Try to avoid punishing your child. Preschoolers need some guidance because they are just starting to learn how the world works. The child’s behavior could get worse if they are constantly disciplined, so try to empathize with their feelings.
