Overview

Any parent who has followed an active toddler around for a day knows that a child of this age is a whirlwind of explosive, contradictory, and ever-changing emotions. Many books cover the physical and cognitive abilities of the toddler, but Lieberman's is the first to offer an in-depth examination of the varied and intense emotional life of children from ages one to three. Drawing on her lifelong research, Dr. Lieberman addresses commonly asked questions and issues. Why, for example, is "no" often the favorite response of the toddler? How should parents deal with the anger they sometimes feel in the face of their toddler's unflagging obstinacy? Why does a crying toddler run to his mother for a hug only to push himself vigorously away as soon as she begins to embrace him? With the help of numerous examples and vivid cases, Lieberman answers these and other questions, giving us, in the process, a rich, insightful profile of the roller coaster emotional world of the toddler. Lieberman shows that the toddler is torn between the strong desire to remain close to the parent and the equally compelling drive to explore new and exciting surroundings. The author discusses how a child can be helped to achieve a balance between these conflicting desires, to feel both confident and outgoing as well as protected and comforted when necessary. Lieberman also provides fascinating new material on how children's different temperaments express themselves during the toddler years and how parents can better match their own temperaments to their child's. Particular attention is given to the shy child and the very active child at this age. In addition, Lieberman gives new insights on how best to handle common toddler problems, such as sleep disturbances, sibling rivalry, and temper tantrums. She also provides invaluable information on the normal anxieties of this age and how to recognize when anxiety is excessive, needing special attention. Finally, she gives us a fresh, insightful pict

Although there are any number of books that cover the physical and cognitive abilities of toddlers, Lieberman's is the first to offer an in-depth examination of the varied and intense emotional life of children from ages one to three. "An elegant book, filled with wonderful examples and clear insights."--T. Berry Brazelton, M.D. 31 photos.

    Very Helpful in Understanding your Toddler!

    This book was recommended to me by another Mom in my Mother's Club and I really liked liked it! It really helped me understand my toddler better. It is very interesting as the author did extensive research with families and toddlers for years, observing their behavior and trying to understand why they do what they do. How they want two things at one time and when they do not get them, throw a tantrum! It seems the best way to avoid tantrums is to head them off before they start, if possible! I have read many books and this one really stood out to me, coming from a more pyschological point of view.

    Should be on every parents' nightstand

    I have read dozens of books about the social development of children in the early years. The author did an excellent job incorporating theories with real-life experiences. This book is great for parents who are interested in promoting the emotional well-being of their toddler, as well as their own. The information provided by the author is up-to-date and very helpful as a reference. Some of the vignettes had me chuckling out loud. Definately a must read.
