Description
Why do some children thrive, and others struggle?
The answers may surprise you.
New research indicates that the seeds for adult success are actually planted in the toddler years, ages two to five. In "How Toddlers Thrive," child psychologist and director of the renowned Barnard Center for Toddler Development Dr. Tovah P. Klein cracks the preschooler code, revealing what you can do to help your toddler grow into a fulfilled child and adult--while helping you and your toddler live more happily together, every day.
Dr. Klein's research and firsthand work with thousands of toddlers explains why the toddler brain is best suited to laying the foundation for success. New science reveals that drivers such as resilience, self-reliance, selfregulation, and empathy are more critical to success than simple intelligence. Dr. Klein explains what you can do today to instill these key qualities in your toddler during this crucial time, so they are on track and ready to learn when they enter school at age five.
"How Toddlers Thrive" explains why the toddler years are different from any other period during childhood, what is happening in children's brains and bodies at this age that makes their behavior so turbulent, and why your reaction to their behavior--the way you speak to, speak about, and act toward your toddler-- holds the key to a successful tomorrow and a happier today. This provocative new book will inspire you to be a better parent and give you the tools to help you nurture your child's full potential. Stop fighting with your child and start enjoying every minute of your time with them . . . while planting the seeds of happiness and success that will last a lifetime.
