5.0 out of 5 stars Practical info, lovely tone...lot of humor and compassion, 28 Nov 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: New Toddler Taming: A Parents' Guide to the First Four Years (Paperback)
This book is an easy-to-read, uplifting guide that builds a parent's confidence while relieving numerous anxieties. The author addresses many of the major challenges parents face in the first 5 years raising their toddlers. His humor is much appreciated along with the common sense, very practical advice. It is very reassuring to know that you are not the only mum with concerns and occasional regrets. The author is very knowlegeable and understanding. He seems to be "on your side" with suggestions rather than "on your back" with criticism and demands of what is the only correct thing to do. This book has been a wonderful source of support that has helped our family calm down and get along better. For more specific practical suggestions written exclusively for parenting a 2, 3, 4, and 5 year-old, I also wish to highly recommend "The Pocket Parent." This A-Z quick read reference has similar upbeat, practical advice addressing many more annoying behavior issues like bad words, bedtime and mealtime refusals, hitting and hurting others (including the new baby), "moring crazies", interrupting, whining and "parent deafness." Both of these books are filled with practical advice, humor and compassion that helped me to make better choices disciplining and communicating more effectively with my young children.
