Your life may have settled into a nice, predictable routine – or not. Are you worried about your child’s behavior? Her development? Her health? Does your child go to sleep, or cry half the night? And is he a holy terror out in public?
What’s going on????
The Ultimate Toddler Manual promises to be your go to book for advice that you can implement. You will be guided through the preschool years by chapters like “What’s Normal?” and this guidance also looks at what is normal for you, not just for your child. Of course, just printing out the accepted developmental milestones wouldn’t do you much good, so you can look places like Chapter 4: Things Don’t Add Up, for guidance that you can take to your pediatrician.
You’ll see that some problematic behavior is related to security of your child’s attachment to you and to other trusted caregivers. You will learn ways to help your child bond securely to you, and then you will see the implication of attachment to limit setting and building trust. You will learn about the four major triggers of problem behavior, and how to analyze a problem behavior by using the ABC model (Antecedent-Behavior-Consequent).
Yes, we have handled tantrums. In the car, in the supermarket, at the restaurant, and at home. The tantrum, like any other behavior, can be analyzed, and largely, prevented. We will help you do that, and give you the support that you need to break the cycle that you and your child may be child might be locked into. We have also provided a discussion of normal and abnormal sleep behavior, which you will find helps you reduce oppositional, problem behavior during the day.
You have heard enough information, misinformation, and “helpful advice” about getting your child out of diapers that you might doubt your own competence. No longer! We separate all the data into the 5 schools of thought on potty training, so that you can see what makes sense for your family. Finally, we address caring for the person on whom your children depend most: YOU!
The Ultimate Toddler Manual treats you as the competent, capable adult that you are. You will find yourself returning to these pages again and again.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was inspired to write this book after seeing new parents struggling with raising their toddlers and toddlers to be. This book is ideal for anyone with a toddler or even expecting a new bundle of joy (its never too early to start).
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Non fiction toddler manual. No characters were invented. There are a few real case scenarios to provide examples of each topic.
If you have wondered if you are up for the task of raising your toddler, you are not alone. Many, if not all, parents ask the same question. In numerous sitcoms, from the Steve Newhart show to Seinfeld, psychologists make up a big part of the script. It seems that everyone is railing against their parents.
Still, you know that many, if not most, people have been raised in good homes, with parents who have done their best to raise confident, secure kids. You may be one of those people, and you are wondering how you are ever going to parent your children as well as your parents parented you. You have seen parents out in public with their children, and most of those families look like loving, healthy social units.
Why do some people succeed so easily at parenting, even as the world seems to be getting busier and more stressful every day? The secret is that inside every parent, there is an instinct to do the right thing for the healthy development of his or her children. In fact, recent research demonstrates that there are physiological changes in new parents, both women and men, when a child is expected and when the baby is growing into a toddler. What science is showing us is what parents whose self-esteem has survived all the trampling of our modern marketing culture: we are hard-wired to be good parents.
