Secrets of the Baby Whisperer for Toddlers by Tracy Hogg, Melinda Blau

Unnerved by the ceaseless demands of your toddler? Concerned that your two-year-old isn’t developing on schedule? You clearly need to spend some time with Tracy Hogg. Nicknamed the “baby whisperer” by grateful parents because of her extraordinary gift for understanding and connecting with children, Tracy became internationally famous after the smashing success of her New York Times bestseller Secrets of the Baby Whisperer. Now Tracy is back with the same winning blend of common sense and uncanny intuition. Starting with the simple but essential premise that there is no such thing as a “typical” child, Tracy guides you through her unique programs, including

H.E.L.P. (Hold back, Explain, Limit, Praise): the mantra that will remind you of the four elements that are critical to fostering your child’s growth and independence, while at the same time keeping him safe.
Using T.L.C. (Talk, Listen, Clarify) to communicate with your toddler, to figure out what she is really thinking, and to best help her express herself.
R&R: Routines and Rituals that give structure and predictability to daily life and a sense of continuity to holidays and special occasions.
Rehearsals for Change: ways of preparing your toddler for new experiences by encouraging her to practice her skills in the safe, controlled setting of your family.
Conscious Discipline: a way of teaching your toddler how to behave and manage his emotions, while being mindful of the lessons you teach with your own behavior.

Practical, reassuring, and written with wit and energy and boundless enthusiasm for real children and their everyday behavior, this book will be your constant companion during the magical, challenging toddler years.

I'm a single parent with a 2 and 4 year old and this book just made me feel like I was not alone in the parent adventures that we are faced with. I think sometimes we parents need to step back and gather our thoughts and this book makes you laugh and learn about the little ones in our lives. Amazing!

An excellent book to help parents understand the toddler stage. User friendly and developmentally accurate. Discussion on temperament extremely useful. Well done!

This is a very common sense approach to raising children. It really considers the toddler's point of view while having the parent remain in control to gently guide and teach children how to behave and function in the 'real world' I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and have already begun to implement some of Tracy's strategies with great success. helgor

Tracy has an uncanny ability to see through a toddler's eyes. Her advice is sound and solid, and she provides great insight on temperament. I have yet to disagree with her ideas and techniques.
