Essential for educators, caregivers, pedagogues, parents with toddlers, excellent for the socio-emotional development of the little ones! Reading is fluid, very illustrative and has even amused me a lot. It is very funny that my inner child was so clearly identified in many of the examples given by the author. Undoubtedly the book's suggestions are based on extensive experience and research, Joanna Faber and Julie King know what they are talking about and know the basics of empathy and the power of connection with proper communication. Toddlers are perhaps the least understood by parents, is a very short stage but critical to their sense of belonging, emotional development, for the first steps to socialize and humanize. As the father of a 4-year-old, I sometimes feel guilty about losing my temper and being unable to get along when he have angry bursts. I am amazed at the importance of developing empathic skills, recognizing and connecting with my child's emotions, and talking with him expressing genuine emotional support, and how they can make so much difference to get cooperation results. It is also of fundamental importance for me to establish a relationship and communication with my children that inspires more confidence and security, since I recognize that it is key to his self-esteem, develop his ability to resolve conflicts, and be happier. My gratitude to the Publisher and NetGalley for allowing me to review the book
