As parents we have so many expectations from our kids, But ever thought our kids as young as toddler could have some expectations from us! Yes indeed. Let's find out what toddlers want their parents to do frequently and mind you they are serious about it.
Love, love and love
Sounds obvious huh? Still we as parent forget to remind our darling that we love him her so much. Whether its your phone call, business meeting, grocery time, cooking time, laundry or anything else, it takes few seconds to look into his eyes and say," I love you, dear".

Lots of hugs and kisses
A hug and gentle kiss can calm down a crying child. No matter how small may be the cause of her crying or no matter whatever mistake he committed with his little hands, at the end, its your hug and kiss that he expects from you. This is the only way to make him learn from his mistakes.Mind it, he does not understand your anger, stress or fears. He understands your soft touch and gentle voice.
