I am a mom of a 2-year-old toddler and I am finding it extremely difficult to make her wear a mask during this pandemic. It is important for us to go out for grocery shopping and other essentials, but my daughter completely resists wearing a mask. She pulls it off every time I put it on her and throws a tantrum. I am really worried about her safety and the safety of others around us.
I have tried explaining to her that we need to wear a mask to stay safe and healthy, but she doesn't seem to understand. I have also tried making it a game and using positive reinforcement, but it doesn't seem to work. I don't want to force her, as I don't want her to develop negative associations with wearing a mask.
I would really appreciate it if some other parents or experts could share their experiences or tips on how to handle this situation. I am sure there are many other parents out there who are facing the same issue. Thank you in advance for your help.
