Toddlers go through so many stages as they grow, some good and some not so good. That’s why we like having a Toddler Behavior Chart on hand to help keep kids accountable for their actions! This helps us navigate the good and bad. Not only that, they are super excited to learn and explore new things. Tracking their chores and actions helps so much and at this age, they are excited about little things!
Reasons to Use a Toddler Behavior Chart
I love toddlers because they are always ready to face a new challenge head-on. Whether it is strengthening their walking skills, climbing on things that didn’t seem climbable, learning the word ‘no,’ hitting and biting or, inserting their independence, there are many hurdles to conquer. They are also becoming more interactive with their world and the people around them. As they are becoming more familiar with the world around them, they are also learning how to handle their own emotions as well.

We need to help our children learn to care for themselves, and that starts at an early age. Simple daily chores are a great way to make sure your child is learning about independence and self-care, even at just 2-3 years old. A behavior and chore chart helps track how they react to being asked to do their chores, and also gives you both a way to feel accomplished at the end of the day.
Helps navigate big emotions
Toddlers, just like us adults are sure to have a bad day every once in a while. It is essential to their parent you validate their feelings and emotions. Allowing them to have their beliefs but, also showing them how to handle those feelings and emotions appropriately is essential as well. No matter the behavior your toddler is exhibiting it is vital to keep their focus on being kind, respectful and polite. Using a Toddler Behavior Chart much like ours can help you to keep them focused on these things.
Keeps both of you on track for milestones
As your child grows up, you will be looking for specific milestones to happen. In early months it includes things like holding their head up, rolling over, crawling, and more. As they grow older, you’ll see that their behavior is another milestone. At 2-3 years of age, your child can help with many little things like putting away toys, brushing their teeth, or making their bed. It may not be done as exact as you would, but it is a beginning. This helps them learn those fine motor skills, but is also vital for their ability to follow direction and complete things.
As you can see, a toddler behavior chart and chore chart is a great addition to your routine with your little one! Click on the link above to print your own copy of this chart to use every day in your home.
