For many, toddlerhood is synonymous with the “terrible twos” – a challenging period when children between one to three years start to exert their independence, often beyond the tolerance of their parents and caregivers. However, parenting toddlers does not have to be frustrating all the time if one can make sense of their behaviour.
Written for parents and caregivers, this book (in its third edition) offers practical advice in managing common behavioural issues of toddlers, ranging from biting to sibling rivalry, based on the philosophy of respect for young children. The many real-life examples in the book give insight into why toddlers act the ways they do and show how parents can respond with empathy.
Parents and caregivers can also find inspiration and thoughtful tips on successful and happy parenting. This informative guide helps parents make toddlerhood for their children a memorable and enjoyable time so they grow to be confident and respectful of others.
