The first thing that caught my eye and grabbed my attention was when the author referred to toddlers as little cavemen/neanderthals. Yes it put a smile on my face too.
I couldn't agree more. I told Pat today that I feel like I spend all day, every day, doing things to avoid tantrums. I pack snacks so that I can preoccupy my child. I hide things that might trigger a meltdown and I try to use the nicest calmest tone when talking to her in hopes that my calmness will resonate with her. Its all great in theory yet its kind of exhausting. Especially when you get the young girl at the counter of shopper's drugmart staring at you because your kid just wants her damn puffs open and is going ape shit.
I'm hoping that this book gives me some good ways of dealing with my little cavewoman. I have heard good things about "The Happiest Baby on the Block" book. So here's to hoping.
