Many toddlers can be wilful, stubborn and hyperactive, but parents often believe they are alone in experiencing such difficulties. This book aims to be an effective guide to childcare, and contains practical advice which has been tried and tested by many parents and toddlers over 15 years.
Many parents wonder how the sweet, chubby baby which gurgles happily at them for the first twelve months changes so suddenly into a bellowing, tantrum prone, heel drumming, carpet biting toddler. What's gone wrong? Whose fault is it? What can they do about it? Consultant paedriatrician Dr Christopher Green's classic work on coping with infants has now been extensively revised and expanded in this new edition to answer these questions and others like them in a way that parents of the 1990s will instantly grasp. He quickly clams fears of 'abnormal' bad behaviour, points out the inevitable strains of bringing up children, and offers invaluable practical advice on all fronts from discipline to sleeping problems, tantrums to toilet training. Light-hearted yet authoritative, Toddler Taming is a must for family sanity.
