Do daily temper tantrums make running errands a nightmare? Are the terrible twos getting to be more than you bargained for? Do you think that only “perfect parents” have well behaved children?
Young children are learning so much about the world and their families, and it is a great age to make changes that will last a lifetime!
As the mother of a three year old, I understand what other parents could be going through! My degree is Clinical Social Work did not prevent my son from throwing a tantrum at Target a time or two! However, many of the parenting techniques that I learned from the book PARENTING YOUNG CHILDREN changed how I react to my son’s outbursts. This has resulted in less whining and more peaceful shopping trips!
Even though there is no “magic book” that will help you to become a “perfect parent” there are many parenting skills you can develop that will improve the quality of you and your child’s relationship. Best of all, it uses the power of positive parenting to encourage your child to do well, rather than focusing on punishing for bad behavior. Learn how to make consequences logical and fitting for different kinds of behavior challenges.
The terrible two’s can become the terrific threes!
