Realize that though they may say anything, yet they usually don't mean it, and they usually get over it very quickly. [br] Just pretend shock, giggle and chuckle at their smarting off or their cute actions, they should cooperate (better than if you were to have a war of wills and serious words).[br] It is okay to "pretend anger, playfully," as if insulted or pretending amusement, etc. Be a clever actor, but not too silly, be kind of serious, and use the pretending to teach.[br] Happily explain what you really mean, in a gentle way, but don't be surprised that they make a game of touching things and looking at you to see how you react, just say "no-no". Try to give an alternative activity.</p> <p><strong>Make a list of activities: Keep them occupied.</strong> [br] Kids love to play. Make sure you have loads of toys, building blocks, bring crafts it depends on age, rattles, books, and even spoons. Be creative![br]</p> <p>Take them for a walk, in a stroller.[br]</p> <p>Color with crayons.[br]</p> <p>Give the child the building blocks. [br] Help them learn to build different kinds of towers and knock them down, or he or she may act upset if it falls down, but just help them, a little, to build it again.[br]</p> <p>Be prepared to change games multiple times. Kids at that age have a very short attention span.[br] Present the toys one at a time, when playing with toys. This helps because if there are many toys to choose from at once, they'll only play with the pile for a few moments and get bored and the house will be messy.[br] If there is only one, they'll stick with it until they get bored, and you can hand them another one, but later offer 2 or 3 related toys because sometimes they tend to play with more than one toy at a time.</p> <p><strong>Check the diaper regularly: Change it promptly, if it needs it.</strong> [br] The smell is usually a strong indicator. If the child is recently toilet trained, ask regularly whether he or she needs to use the bathroom and watch for signs of needing to go.</p>

    If the kid is sexy, resist the urge to try to have sex with them; they are too young....

    What? You guys are making this way too complicated. It's simple. We, uh, sit on the baby. You just put the baby on a chair, or a couch, or whatever, and you sit on it. Done.
