Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book you can revisit again and agin for support and helpful parenting tips. My favorite part of this book is that it gives you insight into how the child feels as well as how the adult is feeling regarding a particular issue. It offers many positive techniques for solving problems. If you have a 2, 3, 4, or 5 year old, I also recommend another very helpful paperback called "The Pocket Parent." Both books are written by professionals who are also mothers and cover just about every challenging behavior you can think of such as whining, lying, sibling rivalry, power struggles, hitting, biting, bad words and much more.

I have at last found a book that works with toddler twins. Most other discipline tecniques became a game between them. But this book contains examples of single children twins and triplets. Truley simple and effective. It is clear and easy to understand. I highly recommend it for mothers of multiples or just 1 or more children.

Format: Paperback
Although I don't use this book as a toddler / child rearing behavioural book as a bible, I definitely think that Tanya Bryon's approach and background suits my approach to raising children. Fortunately she doesn't go down the Supernanny route of constantly spouting the benefits of "setting boundaries" and "sticker charts". Instead she looks into the reasons why children behave in certain ways in certain situations and gives you options on how to react and deal with the challenges along the way. I found it to be quite helpful, but like everything child related it won't be everyone's cup of tea.

Format: Paperback
An invaluable "guide" for helping parents of all ages to build a family life of real quality. This is not your usual parenting book where you are dictated too and told what to do and how to do it, Tanya Byron simply holds your hand within the pages and guides you through the ups, downs, joys, tantrums, problems and how best to recognise the behaviour triggers and manage it all in a positive way for both you and your children, which benefits everyone.

An absolutely essential book that is now kept permanently beside the bed so that my wife and I can reference it every night, not just to learn something new but also to recap on the day.
