The Happiest Toddler on the Block: The New Way to Stop the Daily Battle of Wills and Raise a Secure and Well-Behaved One- to Four-Year-Old The Happiest Toddler on the Block: The New Way to Stop the Daily Battle of Wills and Raise a Secure and Well-Behaved One- to Four-Year-Old by Harvey Karp


My review


I'm only on page 47 so far. Really agree with the idea of viewing kids as little cave-people rather than little adults. But I hate it when books talk about "the good old days." In this case, it's the days when the village, not the nuclear family, raised the child, and kids could play outside by themselves without parents having to worry. I'm sure those days were great, but reminiscing often doesn't provide any actual help. Once you get past that, though, there are some really good pointers.
