"Toddlers and preschoolers, especially, feel small in the world. Most things happen to them. They crave predictability, knowing what will happen, because it gives them some sense of control. A predictable routine allows children to feel safe, and to develop a sense of mastery handling their lives. Kids who understand the routine, rather than feeling pushed around by what seems like arbitrary circumstance are more likely to cooperate. I dont' generally endorse products, but SchKIDules looks like a terrific way to give toddlers the security of knowing what happens next in their day." --Dr Markham
