4.0 out of 5 stars Top tips for dealing with toddlers and young children's behaviour, 29 Aug. 2009
This review is from: Your Child ... Your Way: Create a Positive Parenting Pattern for Life (Paperback)
Those of your familiar with Dr Tanya Byron's television programmes will know that her style of behaviour management is less about sticking the child on a "naughty step" and more focussed on encouraging parents to explore how their own behaviours and the environment around the child are impacting on the child in the first place.

Her book is useful in helping frazzled and frustrated parents step back from the situation, reflect on the 'triggers' and background to the problem behaviour they are trying to address, and provide humane and positive methods to reward and reinforce good behaviour.

Its tone is refreshingly non-judgemental; Byron does not purport to know all the answers and never presumes to lecture the parents on how things must be done. Instead she claims to try and 'empower' parents to make their own decisions as the people who know the child in question best.

I would recommend this book to all parents, as it encourages you to look at key aspects of parenting and might be a good way of preventing negative patterns of behaviour from becoming established in the first place. For parents of children who have problems with eating, sleeping, tantrums etc., this book won't provide easy answers, but would possibly offer a good starting point for working towards some solutions.
