Kudo Banz is there for parents as they tackle life’s most mystical parenting challenges.
Kudo Banz helps your child reach these milestones in a fun and positive manner!
We've listed Kudo Steps for each milestone to make it super easy.
Picking up after yourself is a learned behavior. It is something that kids need to be taught as they grow. Start simple and small and add as they get older. Our job as parents is to help our kids develop the habit of cleaning up. It doesn’t have to be seen as a “punishment” or a miserable “chore”. It can be taught in a fun and positive manner. And if we are consistent, it will become routine for kids and be an invaluable habit that lasts a lifetime.
Getting kids to eat healthy is one of the most common parenting challenges. You are not alone and it is not hopeless. Acquiring tastes for different (non-sugary) foods takes time and requires parent patience. Think of it more as a marathon than a sprint. We are in it for the long-run and in time our kids will catch on. Our job as parents is to expose our kids to healthy foods - not to force our kids to eat them. The kitchen table is a place for families to come together, not a food battle field.
Potty training is something every child goes through and (most) every parent dreads. Each child is different so there is no one right way to potty train. As parents, our job is to be patient, encouraging and flexible when teaching our little ones to use the potty. Kids will respond to your attitude so remain positive and keep things light. Your child WILL get the hang of it. It just takes a bit of time. Think of it as a potty adventure!
Finally, after a long day it’s that time now... bedtime. Take a deep breath and gather all your remaining patience. Bedtime seems to be when kids turn into monkeys and lose all attention span. It shouldn’t be surprising to kids when parents say, “Get ready for bed,” yet somehow they look at you with utter confusion. Bed? What is that?
Homework time can be challenging for many families. It is important to know it is common. Every child is unique and will have different homework needs. Some kids have trouble getting motivated to start, some get easily overwhelmed when there is a lot to do, some get emotional when they get stuck on a question and some struggle with attention span to get it all done. Working with your children to understand...
Helping out with family chores is a learned behavior. It is something that kids need to be taught as they grow. Start simple and small and add as they get older. Our job as parents is to help our kids develop the habit of helping out. It doesn’t have to be seen as “punishment.” It can be taught in a fun and positive manner. And if we are consistent, it will become routine for kids and be an invaluable habit...
Getting the kids ready for school in the morning is a daunting task. Unless you have a house of merry morning people, it is hard to wake up early and quickly get ready for school. Often the morning routine is filled with rushing and yelling - not an ideal way to begin the day.
You finally get your child to bed and you are officially “off duty.” So you think. Within minutes, your child calls for you, pops out of bed, asks for endless things and begs to sleep in your bed. This may have been okay when they were tiny but now that they are getting bigger, they need to learn to stay in their own bed the whole night. But how?
If you have multiple kids, you know that siblings don’t always get along. It is normal but can be extremely frustrating. There are many causes for sibling fighting including sibling rivalry, personality clashes, different wants due to different ages or just plain ‘ol bad moods. How can we help our children get along better?
Tantrums. Just the word gives parents anxiety. There are few things worse than your child having a major meltdown in public. We’ve all been that parent. Take comfort in knowing tantrums are very common with young kids. Emotional maturity takes considerable time to develop. The good news is there are simple steps to help your children learn that tantrums aren’t worth their time and energy!
Every parent struggles with how to get their kids to listen better. It becomes especially clear (and embarrassing) when your kids don’t listen well when you are out and about! At home or out it is an ongoing challenge, but there are easy things we can do to help. Listening, like most milestones, is a skill that needs to be learned. In time, good listening becomes a habit and everyone in the family is happier 🙂
Children whining is like nails on a chalkboard. It can drive you nutty 🙂 It is hard to keep your cool and stand your ground. However, giving into whining will only encourage kids to do it more; a never-ending whining circle. So what can parents do?
