Publisher's Summary

Fed up with the constant arguing and feeling like you can' get ahead of your three-year-old's constantly changing wants, needs, and opinions?

Would you love to have a pause button when your little one is throwing a tantrum at the supermarket?

Do you find yourself losing your temper when your kids misbehave and no matter how many times you remind them, they just keep doing the things you want them to stop doing?

The audiobook comes with more than 20 personal examples on how to handle daily life situations with small children. While listening, you will find ways to:
  • bring new habits into your life that can help children to better understand the rules,
  • feel less irritable, more relaxed, and be more creative in your reactions,
  • save your evenings and enjoy adult time without interruption,
  • teach small children to be more self-sufficient (and responsible!) so that they get ready faster, contribute to household chores, and play independently,
  • stop feelings of guilt and doubt when you must discipline,
  • laugh more with your kids and connect deeper.


With children it's difficult to always be on top, especially if the nights are short and you are trying to juggle it all. Having quick and practical tips to stay creative, try something new, and constantly remind yourself of some guidelines on the path towards mindfulness, happiness, and conscious living can only be a good thing.

Get ready for radical family life changes and be prepared for more playful times!

    "Good pointers for new parents!"

    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.

    "Great help"

    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.

    Story
    "quick with good advice"

    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.

    Story
    "Loved it! Great book, with wonderful information!"
    Where does Master the Daily Battles of Parenting Toddlers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    Have you listened to any of Joni Abbott’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was a first for me. I hadn't listened to one of her books before, but I did enjoy it.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Moved me? Not, necessarily, but like I mentioned before, I appreciate the advice and insight it gave me.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Really enjoyable, with actionable advice!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Master the Daily Battles of Parenting Toddlers to be better than the print version?

    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.


    What other book might you compare Master the Daily Battles of Parenting Toddlers to and why?

    None come to mind, as most parenting books seem to blur together with similar ideas.


    What does Joni Abbott bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Simple emotion. The emotion associated with dealing with a toddler can be striking if you don't know it, but she nails it.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    How hostile some of our messages are to our children, and how simple re-phrasing can make life so much easier for both parties.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it and highly recommend it.

    "Simple little tricks make a big difference"

    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.
