Description

This book works.
It shows that that the naughty step, sticker charts and controlled crying are NOT the only solutions.
Many parents struggle with getting their toddlers to sleep, picky eaters; respect; tantrums; discipline; throwing; biting; hitting, communication... All this is normal.
What is important is that you don't base your whole relationship with your child on rewards and punishment.
ToddlerCalm is about gentle parenting. It will give you a proven and successful alternative approach to creating a calm and happy family.

Review quote

I like the fact that ToddlerCalm is written in a non-judgemental way. It offers support and guidance to parents and I find myself dipping in and out of it for advice and reassurance. I can really relate to the personal stories and love the quotes throughout.
The section on Avoiding Difficult Situations got me thinking about all of the times I dreaded 'circle time' at the various parent/toddler groups I went to. If I had read this book first I wouldn't have felt the need to persevere and my toddler and I would have happily pottered at home instead of feeling we always had to be so busy! * Nell McAndrew, model and marathon runner * Everything you say in the book really resonates with the way we hope we will parent * Dame Sarah Storey * I welcome this book as a sensitive antidote to the alternatives. It is not advocating permissive or authoritarian care, it is a paean to the glorious fun and joy which can result from understanding your toddler, seeing it from their point of view, and then gently nudging them towards maturity -- Oliver James
