Have a 2 year old that doesn't like to listen? These 20 listening activities are fun and effective. Your toddlers and preschool kids will be following directions in no time with these whole body games and music.
How to Communicate with your 2-3 year old (especially when they don't listen!) - I actually read through all of these and they are great advice, especially the ones about keeping requests short and simple, rephrasing "no running" into "let's walk instead of run" so that "No" has more impact when you really need it, and using "when" instead of "if" to communicate you expect obedience. Good stuff!
