Way back in 2008 when we first kicked around the idea of becoming parents, we did what all sensible parents-to-be do: buy a stack of discounted parenting books from a salvage store! Three years, one baby and a whole lot of reading later, it turns out that one of those random used books, Your Self-Confident Baby, ended up most closely matching the way we prefer to raise our kid (attachment parenting be damned). So naturally, when the time came to read up on toddlers, I went for this book, which e ...more
This had quite a few good suggestions and ideas. I didn't find it as illuminating or surprising as the Ginott books I've been reading, which have given me totally new ideas for interacting with kids and ways of saying and doing things.

Whoa! Anyone who has a toddler needs to have this book. I find myself running to it during nap-times to make sure I am handling things in a healthy way for my little lady.

I enjoyed reading this books because it help me understand toddlers better and it also gives ideas on how to correct their

Quick, easy, and sensitive reference for a very challenging time in parenthood.
Didn't get much new out of this after reading many other parenting books, including RIE.
a respectful approach to raising toddlers
