This streamlined revision of the breakthrough bestseller by renowned child-development expert Dr. Harvey Karp will do even more to help busy parents survive the "terrible twos" and beyond....
In one of the most revolutionary advances in parenting of the past twenty-five years, Dr. Karp revealed that toddlers often act like uncivilized little "cavemen, "with a primitive way of thinking and communicating that is all their own. In this revised edition of his parenting classic, Dr. Karp has made his innovative approach easier to learn--and put into action--than ever before.
Combining his trademark tools of Toddler-ese and the Fast-Food Rule with a highly effective new "green light/yellow light/red light" method for molding toddler behavior, Dr. Karp provides fast solutions for today's busy and stressed parents. As you discover ways to boost your child's good ("green light") behavior, curb his annoying ("yellow light") behavior, and immediately stop his unacceptable ("red light") behavior you will learn how to soothe his stormy outbursts with amazing success--and better yet, prevent these outbursts before they begin And the new thirty-item glossary of Dr. Karp's parenting techniques will save you valuable time when you need to instantly calm an out-of-control child. The result: fewer tantrums, less yelling, and more happy, loving time for you and your child.
