Toddlers and Productivity -- Top 3 Ways To Make It Work

Working at home, when you have small kids is possible, but there are some things you need to think about.

It almost sounds too good to be true, work-at-home while at the same time taking care of your small children? While you've daydreamed about this, you never really thought it was something you could actually do.

I started working at home for this very reason. I didn't want to have to put my baby in daycare. Fortunately, I found a business as a writer where I could do just that. However, not all home businesses are as compatible.

Here are 3 ways to make working at home with the kids around work for you.

1) Find a business you will LOVE running and will be possible with the kids around.

Sure, you might be able to get a job as a telephone order person for LL Bean from home. The only problem is your 5 month old may not agree.

Your first assignment is to figure out what exactly are your priorities. They could be anywhere from not wanting your kids in a daycare for 12 hours a day to wanting to raise your children yourself.

2) Daycare

There are days where I say to myself, "Liz, you could sure get a whole lot done if you didn't have your kids around the house all day long." However, that's why I'm here in the first place. My goal has always been to be here for my kids. So I work around their schedule.

It maybe totally different for you. A good friend of mine is a word processor. There is no way she could get the amount of work done that she does if she was having to watch her children all day long too. So she has someone come into her house to watch over her children.

You have so many options to make your home business work: full time or part-time daycare; a live-in nanny; someone that just comes into your home a few hours a day; bartering childcare with other work-at-home moms; getting your relatives to watch your kids jut a few days a week; hiring a 12 year old (they love playing with younger kids) to watch your kids just an hour or two a day. You have so many options, which one will work best for you?

3) Be creative

There are times when you have an important phone call and those charming children of yours are around -- what do you do? As that cute little show, Blue's Clues says, "It's time for the thinking chair."

A) Just don't answer the phone. Is it best that you talk to them with a screaming kid in the background or to call them back when things quiet down?

B) Get little Johnny his own little play phone/computer/desk. Kids love to pretend they are just like Mom and Dad. So play on that little factor. If you want, pull out the play phone, etc., only when you really need it.

C) Bribe them. I know, I can't believe I'm telling you this either. But I'll admit there have been times when I may have been on a phone call and raided the freezer for an ice cream bar for my girls. I may have even been known to give them a couple bars if it was a really long conversation.

D) One-on-one time. How many times have you said, "Just one more minute". I've said it way too many times. But those times that I've gone and taken a walk with my girls, had a tea party or played Playmobile... those have become wonderful memories; and when I'm done, they're more than happy to go off and play by themselves for awhile.

 

Spark Your Toddler’s Creativity And Imagination

By age six months onwards, your toddler has become even more curious about his surroundings, experimenting on various things, putting on his mouth whatever he gets his hands on. It is by this time that you see that your baby is excited to explore the world around him. It is also by this time that you have to level-up to more advanced ways to hone two of the most important aspects of his overall development—his creativity and imagination.

By age six months onwards, your toddler has become even more curious about his surroundings, experimenting on various things, putting on his mouth whatever he gets his hands on. It is by this time that you see that your baby is excited to explore the world around him. It is also by this time that you have to level-up to more advanced ways to hone two of the most important aspects of his overall development—his creativity and imagination.

One effective way to stimulate your kid’s creativity is to fill his world with colors and shapes. Redecorate his baby color themed nursery by painting the walls with vibrant colors and maybe even turning it to a mural wall painted with kid friendly characters and drawings. Adorn his room with decorations of various shapes, colors and sizes.

Give him toys that will incite his creative imagination. Building blocks are ideal toys for this age, not only because it works to improve fine motor skills but also encourage your kid to use his imagination to build. Stacking toys such as stackable cups and pails are also exciting for your kid and will also be good for the stimulation of his creativity.

Do toddler art projects with him. Who says a toddler like your kid is too young for an art project? There is no age limit for anyone who desires to be a Picasso or a Van Gogh. However there are appropriate art projects for every age especially for kids. For your toddler kid, you can engage him in a little painting session. Paint his feet and hands with non-toxic, water-based and hypoallergenic poster colors and have him put his hand and foot marks on a piece of paper or canvass. This will not only spark his creativity but also elicit giggles from him. Just be sure that you clean him thoroughly afterwards and that he does not put his hands in his mouth during the activity.

Encourage imaginative pretend plays. You may not find your toddler zooming around pretending to be Superman like his older kid brother but it doesn’t mean that he can’t engage in his own kind of imaginative pretend plays. As early as now, you can encourage pretend plays by playing with your kid. For example, you can pretend to be characters in a story, use his Baby Einstein puppet to act like a wizard while you are the princess and your toddler is the hero of the story.

Read books to him. Toddlers are fascinated with books especially those that have vivid and colourful visual prints and images. Engage him to browse at these books while you go on to read to him the adventures of little duckling or the classic Pinocchio. Remember, even though you’re toddler is too young to completely comprehend an entire story, this is a stepping stone in stimulating his imagination.

Your toddler has untapped creativity that needs to be honed. It is up to you as parent to awaken his creative imagination, and help him make it bloom and flourish.

 

Toddlers with Diabetes: Caring for the Littlest Patients

Caring for a toddler is a challenge at the best of times. When the toddler has diabetes, the challenge is multiplied. But it can be overcome, with knowledge --- and lots of love.

Toddlers with diabetes are suffering from Type 1 diabetes, also known as juvenile diabetes or diabetes juvenile. The number of children under the age of five being diagnosed with diabetes juvenile has almost doubled in the past five years. Caring for toddlers is a challenge under the best of circumstances, and toddlers with diabetes need even more special care and attention.

<strong>Symptoms</strong>

First, if you are wondering whether your toddler has diabetes in the first place, here are some signs to look for:

•often complains of feeling thirsty
•hungry more often
•suddenly loses weight
•urinates more than usual, diapers more wet than usual
•occasional fruity smelling breath

If you notice any of these symptoms in your child, discuss with your doctor the possibility you have a toddler with diabetes.

<strong>Special challenges</strong>

You or your caregiver will have to closely monitor your child's blood sugar throughout the day to be sure it stays within a safe range. Ideally this means 6-12 mmol just before meals.

Toddlers with diabetes also require daily insulin shots, which can be traumatic for you as well as your child! When administering both finger pricks for the blood sugar tests and the insulin shots, you should be as quick and calm as possible about the procedure. If your child is playing, go where he or she is rather than having them come to you. That helps establish the procedure as just a normal part of their day.

Of course, your child will resist these procedures, and it can be hard for parents and caregivers to remember they are doing this for the child's health. It must be done, however, and you may have to learn to restrain the child gently. It also helps to give them a big hug and a kiss after it's finished to make sure they understand you still love them even though this hurt a bit.

Another problem is that toddlers with diabetes can't tell you when they are feeling the effects of low blood sugar, which is another reason for careful monitoring.
Toddlers in general can be picky eaters, and toddlers with diabetes are no different. The challenge here is in making sure that all your alternatives fit within a healthy and appropriate diabetic diet. Have as wide a selection of those foods available as possible so that when they do refuse certain foods, you can tempt them with an appropriate alternative.

Toddlers with diabetes should otherwise develop the same way, and at the same rate, as other children of their age. So as long as you take the necessary precautions to treat the diabetes, and your child seems normal in all other ways, there's no reason why he or she shouldn't be a perfectly healthy and happy child.
