A couple of great tips for parents of preschoolers!

At Sodapop Gang, we want to not only be a source of entertainment and education for children, but for families as well! So we're going to use this blog and our social networking pages (like our Facebook page) to share with you some of the information we come across on raising happy, healthy kids.

We've come across a couple of great articles in the past few weeks. One is a piece in Slate Magazine that talks about ways to get your toddlers and preschoolers to do some of the things parents always struggle with...like getting picky eaters to try new food, kick-start potty training and other common issues. As always, it's all about how you communicate with them!

The second is an older piece but a good one, which originally ran in Raising Arizona Kids Magazine in 2005. We've provided a copy for you as a PDF file, but to summarize, it provides some helpful tips on actually getting your young ones to listen to you when you're trying to tell them something important.

Check back here for frequent updates and additions, and be sure to sign up as a "fan" on our Facebook page for regular updates. Thanks!
