Toddler Health Center

Now is the dawn of the “Terrible two’s” – but there is a reason for the mythos behind the toddler age. Although children are each born with a unique personality, their early experiences are profoundly influenced by their physical states and by their environments (primarily their parents). Gradually, though, sometime after they master walking, an irresistible urge to make their own choices begins to well up inside.

This is an exciting development, but the difficulty with making an independent choice is that they must disagree with you in order for the choice to be their own. Now, when you ask them to do something, they refuse.

Dr. Greene’s Toddler Center is here for you! It’s full of useful information about helping toddlers through their difficult transitions, and can provide tips on managing the common illnesses and discomforts of this stage.
