Seven practical tips for understanding toddlers
(provided by Kinderling Kids Radio, a Playgroup NSW Media Partner)


Toddlers! They bring so much joy, but can stretch the boundaries of your parenting tool box!

To understand these peculiar (but amazing) creatures, Kinderling Conversation sent out an SOS to Robin Barker, child expert and author of awesome parenting guides including The Mighty Toddler and Baby Love.  

“Toddlers are often anti-social, demanding and self-centred," she says. “These behaviours in a 40-year-old adult would perhaps indicate some sort of mental health problem. However, generally in toddlers, all those things are quite normal.”

Robin shared seven practical (and humourous) tips for taming your Tod-zilla and keeping your sanity.

Play Activity-Tickling the senses

Experiencing new smells is very important in child development as it allows them to learn about the world around them. Talking to them about their sense of smell and describing other smells they sense can also help in their language development. Read more about fun activities that are especially suited for indoors during winter.

We'd love to hear your feedback about this activity. We hope you’ll take the time to use our ratings and reviews feature.

Keeping all your child’s important health history in one place


My Health Record enables families to maintain the best possible health. It can help you keep track of your child’s immunisations, doctor or hospital visits and other important medical information. It will allow you to take measures to ensure your child has the best possible start in life and to arm them with their important health information, all in one place, as they grow.  

Healthcare providers such as doctors, specialists and hospital staff will be able to access your child’s My Health Record when they need to. This is particularly important in the event of an accident or emergency or when your child may be in the care of others such as a grandparent or childcare teacher who may not be aware of your child’s key health information.
