Summary from Amazon
A toddler is defined as a child between the ages of 1-3 years of age. Throughout these years, there are many changes that occur in physical, cognitive, language, emotional, and social development. However, there are also some challenges that may be frustrating for parents such as toddler tantrums and handling jealousy when a new sibling is brought home. This book is meant to offer solutions to such challenges.
Tamra Cater, PH.D. over at The Nurturing Parent with Tamra Cater has written a book! Now, I’m a huge fan of her blog, which you should check out. So, once she put out her book I was super excited.
I’ve been sitting on this review for a really long time. I should have gotten it up ages ago. I feel so bad. Unfortunately, life kept getting in the way.
I was actually fortunate enough to get my copy when there was a special. It’s also available throughout Kindle Unlimited.
I was seriously impressed by Toddlers 101. I’ve read a bunch of different parenting and other advice books and I don’t generally like them. I feel like they tend to ramble on. I can understand why they do it. I just personally don’t like it.
Tamra Cater’s Toddlers 101 wasn’t like that for me. She gave plenty of examples and links references that you can look into yourself. However, she didn’t fill the book with things that you didn’t need. So, I felt the book was the perfect length. I didn’t feel the need to flip through or skim through it.
I really appreciated how the books sounds as a whole. It felt like I was talking to a friend. She had personal stories and gave tips based on what she already experienced. Seeing that she was able to get through her toddler troubles gave me more confidence that I would be able to get through mine.
At one point Tamra talks about what she would have done differently with one of the challenges. This is one of my favorite parts. Parenting isn’t easy and there are so many different ways to do things. So, for her to admit that she should’ve done something different is great! I wouldn’t say other books claim that their way is the only way, but I’ve never seen them state what they tried and what they’d do differently.
Short, sweet, friendly, and helpful. You’re missing out if you don’t try it.
