This book has great practical basic advice from the same guy that wrote Happiest Baby on the Block. He gives simple strategies and the first two chapters give good insight on toddler development and how to navigate it.
This book works. It gave my husband and I the tools to know when to intervene into siblings fights, and exactly what to say. It helps us to guide our kids to navigate their own conflicts, negotiate, and share their feelings effectively.This book has worked for all three of my children, three and up, although there are some strategies that work best for older kids, six and up.
If you think your child is on the “spirited” side — whether it’s lots of energy, intensity, or sensitivity, then you will love this book. Rather than labeling him/her as a problem child, this book will help you see him/her from a unique, positive perspective and give you practical tools for everyday life.
This book is fantastic if you have one boy, two boys or however many the case may be. I have found it valuable for understanding how my little men think (or don’t think), and why they are the way they are.
