If you are past the point of having toddlers, raise your hand. Anyone have children (or grandchildren) under 5? Who has teenagers? Great! This one is all for you!
Do not let title fool you. Taming the Terrible Twos: A Parents’ Survival Guide has something for everyone.
1. Did you know your babbling cubicle buddy (term used loosely) has a reason he does that? Did you know the same method used to make toddlers stop doing it works on adults?
2. The chapter on nutrition gives you ideas on how to make healthier foods for everyone in the house, not just the picky eaters.
3. Open communication is a core concept of this book. It works on children of all ages.
4. Controlling bad behavior is not a matter of punishment; it is a matter of understanding why the behavior happens.
5. Are you entirely sure you are teaching the right lesson? Looking at yourself from another perspective may just produce a forehead-slapping moment.
6. Even people who hate to make lists, especially to-do lists, benefit from schedules. If you missed this important lesson, you will discover how to set a schedule to your advantage.
7. Touch is one of the most important modes of communication. We often identify with loving touches, but have you ever considered biting and hair-pulling are touches? Ravel how to cure them.
8. Learn why falling down is a perfectly appropriate way to learn to take steps forward.
9. Hear heartfelt stories about how toddlerhood changes parents and grandparents when they apply the lessons they learn to their lives.
10. Did you know a toddler can teach you a thing or seven? This book will show you without being preachy.
11. See the world which passes you by in an entirely new perspective. It will make you laugh.
12. Find out it is just as terrible to have this time of a youngster’s life over as it was to have it begin.
13. How your toddler acts will predict how your child will act as a teenager.
