Read full description of the books:
This is one of the better parenting books I've read for the toddler / preschool age. Instead of sticking to one strategy/style, the book presents tips, advice, and methods for discipline and behavior management that span the variety of popular theories. I love the straightforward style, and there are tons of specific situations, ways to handle (varying even for different ages -- taking into consideration a 2 yr old reacts and understands concepts very differently from a 4/5 yr old), and specific messages to deliver to kids to help them understand, cope, re-direct, etc. I dog-eared this book all over the place, and I'm sure I'll be going back to reference it repeatedly over the next couple of years.
The epilogue had some good summary notions, that really resonated with me:
"We build safe borders around these wild bundles of energy; gingerly tweak, redirect, remind, and, of course, love them. Then we wait and watch. As they grow, they surprise us in delightful ways. [...] It's no wonder we glimpse the edge of the cliff sometimes. Young children demand a lot. [...] We soldier on, and know (or hope) that the rewards of growth and self-discovery will sneak up and excite us. [...] Any conscientious parent will sometimes wonder, 'Am I doing the right thing? Should I give in, or should I hold the line?' It helps to be flexible enough to explore ways of improving a situation. But it's also critical to establish reasonable -- but not too restrictive -- boundaries that make sense for your child and your family, and firmly but calmly uphold them. And your positions will sometimes make your child unhappy for a little while. It is not our responsibility to protect our children from disappointment, but it is our job to help them deal with it. Over time - yet another surprise - our children will learn to handle small setbacks with resilience and creativity."
Highly recommended for any parents with the 2-5 age range!
