Parenting an Easy Child
So how do you know if your kid qualifies as adaptable? Easy kids usually share these traits:
- Easy kids don't freak out when you tell them it's time to stop playing and get ready for bed.
- They have no problem with changes or transitions. You can take them anywhere, anytime and they'll do okay (time for that family road trip to the country's national parks!).
- To top all of those blessings off, easy kids typically don't have sleep problems and eat just about anything.
And if your easy kid is your first child, don't start thinking his happy-go-lucky nature is all due to your awesome parenting skills. You can be sure that child #2 will set you straight on that front!
