comment At what age does a toddler stop being a toddler?
I've always assumed they were a toddler until they were beyond diapers or at least potty trained. Isn't that a pre-req for pre-school to begin with?

Yes, the 1-2-3 count works well for most misbehaviors but for this taken item problem it ends up working more like a launch countdown. :-) But +1 on the advice to stay calm, that seems important.

comment How do I deal with a child that refuses to do a chore or task?
We're fortunate in that our son enjoys participating in doing these things just by his nature. But we frequently justify cleanup as "Yes, I'll make a puzzle with you, but, before we can do that we need to pick up all these toys!" Then start cleaning, and he always joins in the fun. Now he's gotten to a point where he is lecturing me about cleaning up my office, and my wife the kitchen!

comment How do you respond to minor injuries?
Agreed; with my kids most of the time the injury is just a bump or fall, and the cry is more from being scared than the momentary pain. Just receiving the acknowledgement from a, "Oh <name>, you're okay!" is enough. They stop crying to hear my words, then realize that they are indeed ok, and go back to playing. If they keep crying, it could be that they're just tired and frustrated.
