So, my two years old has to hold my hand all the time, going to bed, in the car and pretty much all the time. It’s kinda always been just us and her little brother. I love that we are so close, and she always wants mommy, but it’s kinda getting hard holding her hand all the time, especially with her brother bring mobile now and wanting to get into everything. Does anyone have suggestions on what to do? I know it might help me kinda like her security blanket cause we’ve been through a lot in the last two years, and I’ve tried giving her, her favorite blanket, her favorite toy(her Minnie mouse stuffed animal) I don’t know what else to do.
Try and enjoy this sweet stage mommas… It’ll pass and soon be a memory. Sweetest thing I’ve read all day
She’s 2. Hold her hand and figure out a way to hold your son too.
Those times you cant do it till one of your gloves with beans or rice and have her hold it. Or a stuffed animal… Idk… You’ll figure it out!
Try to get her to just sit beside you or tell her mommy needs a little space for a moment if your doing cooking cleaning or taking care of her little brother.
Cherish it. Someday she will not want to
Hold her hand. It doesn’t last forever. Sincerely a mom of teenagers.
Enjoy it. Because that ends sooner than u think
Get a mommy substitute a sweat toy with hands or paws and you hold its hand and she hold its other hand so she can get used to it with you connected then start having her hold its hand with out you or for you like a helper and see if you can replace your hand sometimes with it .
She is only little for just a little while
Just hold it… soon it won’t be happening…
My 27 year old now holds his girlfriends hand, enjoy it while you can
Shes telling you she has a specific need and only you can give her security. Hold it, try to understand why. Lots of affirmations and cuddles. Sweet girl
What a wonderful problem to have!
(No seriously, it’s totally okay to feel overwhelmed. Maybe get her a stuffed animal that she can hold while you’re taking care of her brother?)
Show her that sitting beside you while you use both your hans tending to her brother. Is ok. And that you love her just as much. And let her know your not going anywhere. That you’ll always be there for her. 2 year olds understand more than people realize.
Enjoy it ,when it’s gone you will wish it was still happening
When she is busy go hold her hand let her see how it interrupts her play may make her understand
Just hold her hand. It won’t last forever!
Forget making her independent. She’s 2. You’ll be wishing for this again one day. I still do. Every day.
Enjoy every moment of holding hands with your daughter. When she’s a teenager it will not be like that
