One of the best parts of parenting a toddler is getting to get down on their level to play. I think this is where some parents today are hitting a snag though.
Toddlers aren’t just little monsters that tear apart your house and occasionally poop on the floor, or more than occasionally in potty training season. They are little people whose minds you are shaping for a lifetime.
