Since moving moving to south Florida, I felt that it was extremely important to teach my toddler Spanish. I love to expose my toddler to various cultures because it is important to learn about diversity.
I studied Spanish in high school and college, when it comes to advancement it is important to meet the needs of prospective clients, traveling and so much more. While teaching my toddler Spanish I also expose her to the culture through the food and encouraging her teacher and friends to speak to her in Spanish. When teaching Mariah Spanish I lean more towards numbers and greetings. I have noticed that she responds well to when someone is speaking to her in Spanish, it may be that she is reading their body language, but repetitiveness is essential to learning a new language and culture.
Tips to teaching your toddler
- Flash cards
- Pictures or showing the actual image of what is being taught
- Encourage your family and friends to learn a different and then every one would be open to learning something new.

Recently I have been contemplating on doing a blog post on Mariah’s first dental experience.
As many of you know, Mariah is 2 years old and it was time to get her first dental appointment out of the way. I am pretty sure you guys can imagine how that went. Mariah did not like the idea of someone restraining her to brush her teeth. She is so independent that it is a fight to brush her teeth for her.
Facts about infants/toddler dental health:
- Start early! When your little one is an infant it is important to clean their gums. Using a infant brush or wash cloth will do the trick. If you start early your child will less likely fight you when you are brushing their teeth.
- Consistency is key! A child will become accustomed teeth brushing and it will become apart of their routine.
- Once your little one shows sign of teeth it is important to get them to a pediatric dentist. We waited until Mariah was 2.5 years old but it is suggested when your child is at least one years old.
- If you wait too long to encourage dental care, then there is a strong chance that you will come out of pocket to care for those baby teeth.
- Ask your pediatric dentist the best methods to ensure positive dental practices.
- Buy them pick out their favorite toothbrushes and explain to them the process of dental care.
Don’t be afraid to brush their teeth even when they put up a fight. Develop a reward system, make oral hygiene a fun and rewarding experience.
