Overview

Proven Strategies for Parents of 2- to 6-Year-Olds to Survive and Thrive through the Mischief, Mayhem, and Meltdowns. Toddlers and preschoolers are unpredictable, and their antics often keep parents guessing: Why won't my five-year-old eat his veggies? Why does my two-year-old keep biting her sister? Why can t my three-year-old stay in his own bed? Why must I repeat myself every time I tell my daughter to do something? The naughty as well as challenging behaviors of young children can drive even the most patient parents to their wits' end. In these pages, parents learn how to cope with and correct many of the most common behavioral problems that little ones demonstrate: Hitting, kicking, pinching and biting - Refusing to eat at mealtime - Refusing to sleep at bedtime - Throwing tantrums for attention - Ignoring instructions - Fighting with siblings - Having meltdowns in public places Each chapter examines a specific problem, from the mildly irritating to the downright maddening, and describes practical strategies to rein in, correct and prevent it. Also included are special chapters on how to use time-out correctly, potty train a toddler, and how moms and dads can create a more rewarding and enriching family life. Packed with straightforward techniques and sound advice, this book will help parents rediscover that having a toddler in the house can be more fun than frustrating.
