Why do some children thrive and others struggle? The answers may surprise you. New research indicates that the seeds for adult success are actually planted in the toddler years. Dr. Tovah Klein's research and firsthand work with thousands of toddlers explains why the toddler brain is best suited to laying the foundation for success. Dr. Klein reveals the new science behind drivers such as resilience, self-reliance, self-regulation, and empathy that are more critical to success than simple intelligence.

I wanted very much to like this book as I needed a book to provide guidance on the developmental stages of my toddler. Unfortunately, I found this book to be a waste of time. It was redundant and most of what was discussed was common sense. It would have been more helpful to provide more examples and concrete recommendations of how to help your toddler, then spending most of the book telling you why it's important to see it from your child's perspective, which you already know, which is why you are reading the book in the first place.
