Your Amazing Toddler

Four Things Toddlers Shouldn't Do

  1. Unload the dishwasher. He may love to help Mommy with those racks of dishes and glasses, but an unsteady toddler can easily fall on or bump into sharp objects inside.
  2. Eat while walking. Kids 2 and under are at particular risk for choking. Always have your child stay seated until she's done with her food.
  3. Help spray furniture polish or other cleaners. He could easily get them into his eyes or mouth.
  4. Plug or unplug an electrical cord. While a toddler could do this with supervision, it's best to have a clear rule that she should always stay away from outlets.
