Make Life Easier! 4 Home Hacks for Parents of Rambunctious Toddlers

Life with a toddler can leave you feeling as though you’ve run a marathon. When you’re not dealing with their endless list of demands and needs, you’re cleaning up a mess. Here are some hacks that can help you deal with a rambunctious toddler in a more efficient manner.

Invest in Childproofing Measures
Toddlers have a knack for getting into things that they shouldn’t as soon as you turn your back. Childproofing your home means that everything unsafe needs to be kept under lock and key. When your toddler is first starting to become mobile, you can contain them in an inflatable pool during playtime. This can buy you a little more time to get your home ready. Invest in baby gates and create a play room that doesn’t have anything breakable or hazardous.

Replace Your Flooring
Carpeting in your home isn’t very practical during the toddler and early childhood years. Spills and other types of messes are going to occur on a daily basis. You may find yourself spending hours each week trying to get these ground in stains and spills out. Replace your carpeting with mosaic tiles or hardwood flooring throughout your home. These options are much more cleanable when you have kids. Clean up becomes a breeze because all you have to do is wipe up the mess.

Purchase High-Energy Toys
Trampolines and other toys that encourage your toddler to be active work wonders. This allows them to focus their energy in another way that doesn’t involve destroying your home. It also helps them to sleep better at night so that you can rest undisturbed. When they’ve exhausted themselves physically, have games that are mentally stimulating. This two-part approach can keep them entertained for hours so that you can take a break.

Toothpaste Cleaner
It’s inevitable that you may end up with markers or crayons on places that you don’t want in your home. Toothpaste makes a very effective cleaner when it comes to getting these things off of your walls and flooring. Make it a game with your toddler. Have them help you clean up the mess since toothpaste in small doses isn’t harmful to them like other cleaners. They can learn the value of helping you around the house and about cleaning up after themselves.

Rambunctious toddlers require that you come up with creative ways to dispel their energy. When the weather is nice, outside time can save the inside of your home. For those cold and dreary days, use these tips to help you survive.

Care Tips for a New Pet

Whether your kids want a dog, cat or another type of pet, it’s important to know the proper ways to care for the animal so that it stays healthy and happy in your home. By taking care of the animal the right way, your children will help prolong the life of their pet and make it possible for them to enjoy more time together. Here are some of the best pet care tips to follow.

Care Tips for a New Pet

Get the Right Food

Pets require special types of food to stay healthy. Food that’s specifically made for the type of animal that you have should be part of your pet’s regular diet. Feeding a pet human food is generally not advisable but is sometimes okay on rare occasions. Your pet may also have certain health conditions or dietary requirements that make it necessary to feed them different types of food than standard pet food, and your veterinarian can help you determine what types of food are needed.

Protect Your Pet’s Health

In order to keep your pet healthy, regular checkups from a veterinarian should be routine. Your vet can give your pet any necessary shots to prevent certain illnesses and diseases and check for any underlying health concerns. It’s also important to protect your pet from fleas, and many dog and cat flea prevention products on the market can ward off these parasites. You can also order medicines that are formulated to treat other medical conditions such as heartworm, arthritis and digestive problems.

Learn How to Train

If you have a dog, cat or some other type of pet that isn’t in a cage most of the time, obedience training may be necessary. Training can teach your pet how to obey commands and maintain good behavior. Potty training will teach your pet the proper places to go to the bathroom and can save your floors and furniture from becoming soiled. You may want to hire a pet training professional to help you teach your pet.

Add More Fun with Toys

Most pets love to play, and getting the right toys can make your animal companion even happier. Balls and chew toys can help keep your pet entertained and out of trouble. Many dogs also love to chew and play tug-of-war with ropes. Cats often respond well to items that allow them to climb, explore and scratch with their claws. There are also interactive food dispensers on the market that automatically reward pets with treats.

Learning the proper pet care methods is important if you plan to bring a new animal into your home. You and your kids can improve your pet's quality of life with the right care.
