advocates locking child in bedroom,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: New Toddler Taming: A parents' guide to the first four years: The World's Bestselling Parenting Guide (Paperback)
author suggests locking child's bedroom door shut with rope
tries to justify by saying 'you are not locking your child in the room, its just that cannot get out' - erm so they're locked in then!
author goes on to say they used this with their own kids and it ended in disaster
- why is the author who is supposed to be an expert parent using a last resort technique?
- why is the author suggesting something which, as they found themselves, could be dangerous, and could be much improved by using a stair gate?
needless to say I would not take advice from this person.
The rest of the book is common sense. Seriously don't waste your money.

Ms. C. Stuart says:
A stair gate is really dangerous. Never use one when you are not able to watch your child. My stepdaughter had, and still has problems with her two year old, who will not stay in his room at night. As he can climb over any stair gate, she put two at his door, one on top of the other, and she found him right at the top, climbing over. He could have fallen and broken his neck. Six months down the line, and he still gets up. She just has to keep taking him back, and accept that she has to cope with hardly any sleep, as he doesn't need much, and she also has a one year old daughter to cope with as well.
