5.0 out of 5 stars Useful for parents and carers alike, 12 Dec. 2005
This review is from: How to Survive the Terrible Twos: Diary of a Mother Under Siege (Paperback)
I have no children myself but work as a freelance educator now and was a professional childcarer previously. I would recommend this book to any parent (even if their child is now past the "terrible twos"), as it's entertaining as well as useful (and many of the tips are transferrable to older children too). It also comes across as a comforting read - reading Dunford is like talking to a wiser, more experienced friend who offers advice without criticism whilst simultaneously reassuring you that you're not a terrible parent, everyone makes mistakes, and your child will be okay.
I would also recommend this to carers - it will help you understand what parents go through, you will laugh with recognition at the Emperor, and there is plenty of good advice that you will probably be able to incorporate in your own practice.
And it's probably a good cautionary tale for prosepctive parents, too, to crystallise some thoughts they may be having and prepare them for the reality of what's involved.
