About The Ultimate Toddler Manual by Giselle Harris:
YOU MADE IT PAST THAT 1ST YEAR!
Your life may have settled into a nice, predictable routine – or not. Are you worried about your child’s behavior? Her development? Her health? Does your child go to sleep, or cry half the night? And is he a holy terror out in public?
What’s going on????
The Ultimate Toddler Manual promises to be your go to book for advice that you can implement. You will be guided through the preschool years by chapters like “What’s Normal?” and this guidance also looks at what is normal for you, not just for your child. Of course, just printing out the accepted developmental milestones wouldn’t do you much good, so you can look places like Chapter 4: Things Don’t Add Up, for guidance that you can take to your pediatrician.
You’ll see that some problematic behavior is related to security of your child’s attachment to you and to other trusted caregivers. You will learn ways to help your child bond securely to you, and then you will see the implication of attachment to limit setting and building trust. You will learn about the four major triggers of problem behavior, and how to analyze a problem behavior by using the ABC model (Antecedent-Behavior-Consequent).
Yes, we have handled tantrums. In the car, in the supermarket, at the restaurant, and at home. The tantrum, like any other behavior, can be analyzed, and largely, prevented. We will help you do that, and give you the support that you need to break the cycle that you and your child may be child might be locked into. We have also provided a discussion of normal and abnormal sleep behavior, which you will find helps you reduce oppositional, problem behavior during the day.
You have heard enough information, misinformation, and “helpful advice” about getting your child out of diapers that you might doubt your own competence. No longer! We separate all the data into the 5 schools of thought on potty training, so that you can see what makes sense for your family. Finally, we address caring for the person on whom your children depend most: YOU!
The Ultimate Toddler Manual treats you as the competent, capable adult that you are. You will find yourself returning to these pages again and again.
