An extremely helpful book for parents of toddlers
I really enjoyed listening to this book. It’s been a very helpful approach for dealing with my 15 month olds strong willed, independent, sassy personality haha. The biggest take away for me has been to approach things much more calmly (not bringing my emotion into it), but to be consistent. And the use of the phrase “I won’t let you…” instead of “I don’t want you to..” or “mommy doesn’t want you to..” Toddlers need clarity and I can see how just that phrase switch and following through. I also love our “yes space/safe space” that she recommends. It’s for both mine and my daughters sanity. A place I can put her in the living room that is gated off safely from things I don’t want her getting into and has some of her toys. Where I can put her when I need to do something, and I don’t have to worry about her and she can safely play. My mood has improved tremendously from this. I let her play around the house with me throughout the day. But when I need to make a meal or use the bathroom, she’s not under my feet or getting into things she shouldn’t. Someone mentioned above in a review that she spanks.. she actually specifically says that she doesn’t agree with spanking in the book and doesn’t ever say that she spanked her children. So disregard that review haha. This is specifically about what to do instead of discipline like spanking.
