The happiest toddler on the block

how to eliminate tantrums and raise a patient respectful and cooperative one- to four-year-old
Harvey Karp MD ; with Paula Spencer
Book - 2008

Toddlers can drive you bonkers ... so adorable and fun one minute ... so stubborn and demanding the next! Yet, as unbelievable as it sounds, there is a way to turn the daily stream of "nos" and "don'ts" into "yeses" and hugs ... if you know how to speak your toddler' s language. In one of the most useful advances in parenting techniques of the past twenty-five years, Dr. Karp reveals that toddlers, with their immature brains and stormy outbursts, should be thought of not as pint-size people but as pint-size ... cavemen.
