We’re in the middle of a global pandemic where the general recommendation is for people to wear face masks when they’re out in public, especially when it’s not possible to socially distance. This includes anyone aged 2 or older. It’s easy enough to follow for most adults and older kids, but getting your toddler to wear a mask is a different story.
If you have a toddler, you know that they sometimes will do anything but what you ask them to do. They don’t like being forced into unfamiliar situations and will sometimes resist things irrationally.
My 3 year old has a fear of little pieces of fuzz that you’d randomly find on the ground in your home. She screams and acts like you would if you saw a giant spider. Makes no sense. But hey, that’s toddlers for you.

We’ve done a little bit of research and put together some suggestions for helping you with this issue.
