Publisher's Summary

You knew the terrible twos were coming. You were warned. But now they're here, along with questions you never thought to ask. Why won't he go to sleep? Where should she sleep? How long can you be away without causing permanent trauma? Who should care for your tot if you can't be there? Why is there cereal everywhere in your once clean kitchen but in her mouth? Is it possible to win an argument with the little guy? When does toilet training start? Why on earth is she playing with poop? If you do this wrong, will your child be damaged forever?!

Believe it or not, there are answers, and with a little humor, plenty of understanding, and 50 years' experience, eminent authority in the field of development, child psychiatrist, and master clinician Cal Colarusso, M.D. will ease your mind, answer your questions and provide step-by-step guides that will not only reassure your frazzled parent mind, but also make your most important job - raising your child - a little easier.

Very basic info !! didn't add much to the parent

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

The book is addressing very basic info and with no solutions options or much info that parents should know ! it didn't really add much and the book was very short, and it was hard for the writer to focus on one point and give enough info about every phase or specific development area ! very generic book ! I wouldn't recommend

Would you be willing to try another book from Calvin Colarusso? Why or why not?

No ! I didn't feel he aded much to my knowledge , I wish if he could introduce much more info in the book in every development area

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I barely remember what he said ! I didn't influence or inspire me or my husband at all.
