I enjoy fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. I love mystery, charm, and alternate realities
A fun and motivating book that helps maintain perspective during the day-to-day toddler challenges.
It was engaging and interesting to listen to. I love being a parent and I want to learn how to not be so frustrated with the daily battle of raising a strong independent child, while also trying to teach them order and respect, etc., without turning into "Grumpy Dad" all the time. I appreciate the advice given here and expect to put it into action.
Well with this book, I liked that I could take it with me and read it during my commute. However, I appreciate the advice about how to de-escalate my frustration when I'm feeling it and I appreciated learning to take a step back and realize that these beautiful children are just kids and I shouldn't always hold them to a grown adult's standard. They're learning and I can better help them to learn if I can avoid turning into "Grumpy Dad" and can create a new character who is "Supportive and Understanding Dad" who tries to show his kids why we do things, etc.
This was a first for me. I hadn't listened to one of her books before, but I did enjoy it.
Moved me? Not, necessarily, but like I mentioned before, I appreciate the advice and insight it gave me.
I'd definitely recommend it. I'd compare it to "Parenting with out Power Struggles" It's a great book which helps us as parents to better communicate and work with our kids, instead of misunderstanding them and working 'against' them.
A very quick and concise listen. Wonderful reminder and inspiration of the joy of conscious parenting. Great support for a physical day to day plan to put into action. Excited to go to the link she shares to get the routine charts now!
Had just started struggling with some tantrums for my toddler, and this book gave many good pointers on how to resolve issues. Very short and applicable lessons. A good reminder to not get so frustrated over little things, and how to react to your child's issues. Have actually seen great improvement in my toddler very quickly with small suggestions and changes! Looking forward to downloading the visual charts as well.
I love this book. If you're having a difficult time parenting your little one, read this book. Not just once but over and over again. Take notes! It really did make a difference.
I picked this up as I am soon approaching the "parenting a toddler" years hoping to learn a few things. I knew most of the advice this book has to offer, but even with that being the case it is still rather useful. Those parts I didn't know are worthwhile. So even if you think you know what you are doing, getting advice is never a bad idea.
the author suggests that if there are any sections you know already to just skip over them. This is a little harder in audiobook format. But at 1 hour long, its not like being unable to skip them is going to cost you much.
the book is short, but covers everything it needs to without fluffing around. Clear and concise it is a great resource.
Narration b y Joni Abbott is also clear and easy to follow. Well paced.
This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of audiobookblast dot com.
I wouldn't necessarily say so, but I did get the audio version first, then the print version, so I can refer more easily to the print version.
None come to mind, as most parenting books seem to blur together with similar ideas.
Simple emotion. The emotion associated with dealing with a toddler can be striking if you don't know it, but she nails it.
How hostile some of our messages are to our children, and how simple re-phrasing can make life so much easier for both parties.
Loved it and highly recommend it.
Match your actions towards your children to your feelings about them. Something we all know too well but she is delightful at reminding us. To love and guide our kids with empathy and understanding.
this book helps me when ever I realize that I'm not keeping my cool very well with my 2 and 4 year old. its short and inspirational about how to handle stress. I love it!
Just simply understanding small things about why my kids act the way they do really helps me react differently instead of getting frustrated with them. The book is right, the tender toddler years are very important to a child's development and go by so quickly.
