Publisher's Summary

Wouldn't it be useful to know how infants and toddlers differ mentally from adults and how your experience during the first few years of life affects your experience as an adult? What's on Your Toddler's Mind: A Roadmap to Toddler Thinking and Behavior provides answers to those questions. Fascinating aspects of infant development, such as how an infant comes to develop a sense of self are addressed.

Toddlers are eternally fascinating and frustrating. This audiobook explains the causes, and developmental benefits, of the two-year-old's messiness, negativism, motor restlessness and boundless energy, behaviors that tend to drive parents crazy.

With humor and understanding Calvin Colarusso M.D. , child psychiatrist, brings his fifty years of experience of helping parents of infants and toddlers maximize their child's developmental potential and enjoy the heck out of the experience.

Think of this book as a fascinating source of knowledge of early child development that is filled with examples of situations that every parent of infants and toddlers experiences and suggestions for how to manage them. And as a bonus, learn something about yourself!

What's on Your Toddler's Mind: A Roadmap to Toddler Thinking and Behavior includes the following:

  • A definition of development
  • A description of the developmental phases of the life cycle
  • The emergence of a sense of self
  • The absolutely essential role of good-enough parenting
  • Sexual identity formation
  • The effect of parental absences on early development
  • Toilet training
  • The role of frustration and gratification
  • The importance of caring, nurturing breast and bottle feeding

    "Good review of the toddler stage"
    If you could sum up What's on Your Toddler's Mind in three words, what would they be?

    Short, understandable, professional-oriented


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    This is not a story. Colarusso is a human development researcher who focuses on toddlers and childhood. I used it to reinforce classroom learning. The content was rather dry at times; not like listening to fiction, for example. Probably more reading appropriate as a resource.


    What aspect of Ken Maxon’s performance would you have changed?

    Not remarkable, but then this is a topic of research and factoids for more of a professional application.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    this would be a documentary on toddlers, and i would call it 'No', a toddler's excursion to independence.


    Any additional comments?

    Because of its length, i am assuming that these audibles were produced for the exact reason i purchased it. It provided a short and concise review of a human development stage. The pictue of the toddler is priceless as a cover.

    "bad narration, not really much substance"
    What would have made What's on Your Toddler's Mind better?

    bad narration, not really much substance to the book. The book really doesn't delve very deaply into any given area. At about 1.5 hours it is a very quick listen.
