At Last! A Beginner's Guide to Toddler Technology Just when you've mastered your infant's maintenance routine, he begins to malfunction, refusing fuel, crying inexplicably, and resisting your attempts to clothe him. Your infant has upgraded to a toddler! But how can you master your toddler's changing technology? Through step-by-step instructions and helpful schematic diagrams, "The Toddler Owner's Manual "explores hundreds of frequently asked questions: How should I react when my toddler throws a tantrum? How do I train my toddler for self-waste disposal? Whatever your concerns, you'll find the answers here--courtesy of pediatric psychologist Dr. Brett R. Kuhn and co-author Joe Borgenicht. Together, they provide plenty of useful advice for anyone who wants to learn the basics of toddler care.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for young techie dads! 11 Jan 2007
By Mrs. Nancy Ayers - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When my son-in-law Drew returned from deployment, my grandson was 13 months old. Drew was anxious to get to know his son and help my daughter take care of him, but he had not had much experience with little ones. Drew's catching on real fast, but this book is a help to him. The technical-style language reminds me of my cell phone or computer instruction books (in a humorous way) and is truly geared to a guy's way of thinking. The information is reliable, concise, and organized for quick reference as well as cover-to-cover reading. So if Drew needs to pack a diaper bag for a day trip, or if Ryan gets a boo-boo while mommy's shopping, he has a go-to answer book in the Toddler Ownder's Manual. The author should think about selling this to the Department of Defense to distribute to dads returning home, it should be required reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent 12 Jan 2007
By Isaac Kishk - Published on
This book is very informative in a non-reference kinda way. While it's laid out like a car owners manual, it can be used for direct reference to whatever you are looking for. However, it is also writing chronologically, so that you can start from the beginning, and read along as your baby grows. Its written in a half sarcastic/playful manner which keeps you entertained while learning or verifying information. Definitely something a parent should not go without, if not just for entertainment.

4.0 out of 5 stars toddler owners manual has great info 24 Mar 2007
By Chris - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like this book, it's written like a car manual except for your toddler. It's funny, and has a lot of great info. I also have the baby owners manual. My husband likes the way it's written also. It's to the point, and you don't have to read through a bunch of stuff to get the info you're looking for.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun review for grandparents and parents 14 Mar 2010
By Deborah Verlen - Published on
This is a cute little book that will provide a great review for parents and grandparents about what it means to be a toddler.

The chapters include Updates for Home and Transportation (this was written in 2005, so some of this info is most likely outdated). Chapter two contains General Care and Handling and gives some good ideas for comforting a child, suggestions for toys and travel. Chapter three gives a humorous overview of "Understanding the Toddler's Power Supply" which concentrates on eating and food. Programming the Sleep Mode, chapter four, talks about sleeping patterns. Chapter five concentrates on "General Maintenance and Training" such as reprogramming the child from diapers to "self-waste disposal." You'll find charts and more in Chapter six about "Growth and Development." Chapter seven includes some realistic and proven techniques for "Discipline." Chapter eight concentrates on emergencies and safety.
