Oh Crap! I Have a Toddler: Tackling These Crazy Awesome Years―No Time-outs Needed (Oh Crap Parenting) by Jamie Glowacki
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 3.5 MB
Overview: Real-world, from-the-trenches toddler parenting advice from the author of the bestselling Oh Crap! Potty Training.
Toddlers-commonly defined as children aged between two and five years old-can be a horribly misunderstood bunch. What most parents view as bad behavior is in fact just curious behavior. Toddlerdom is the age of individuation, seeking control, and above all, learning how the world works. But this misunderstanding between parents and child can lead to power struggles, tantrums, and even diminished growth and creativity.
The recent push of early intellectualism coupled with a desire to “make childhood magical” has created a strange paradox-we have three-year-olds with math and Mandarin tutors who don’t know how to dress themselves and are sitting in their own poop. We are pushing the toddler mind beyond its limit but simultaneously keeping them far below their own natural capabilities.
