Toddlers need boundaries
Much of what is viewed as naughty, defiant toddler behaviour, is actually normal for a child at this stage of development.
Name of Product:
Toddlers need Boundaries by Anne Cawood (South Africa Metz Pres)
Where can I get it?
It covers the usual problem areas with toddlers - tantrums, sleeping, eating and toilet training. Anne’s recommendations are loving yet very firm which left us feeling we weren’t being bad parents by “laying down the law”. The book is simply written so most parents will find it a quick and easy read. It’s one of those books to keep close at hand for refresher reads when things with your Toddler begin to go South!
We don't like
There isn’t much not to like.
Some of her “naughty” examples seem to be general toddler behaviour, what I think Anne is trying to say is be aware that certain behavour doesn’t spin out of control.
