They’re many parentin-g advice books. They go through everything imaginable such as tantrums, eating, kicking, biting and that’s just a few. I seriously have no clue what they did when I was a toddler because they didn’t as many resources that we have now. I’m guessing my mom asked her mom or asked a friend and hoped for the best. E books are the fastest ways to get information on a topic you need an answer to right away. Let’s face it, when we go online to Google a topic you come up with a million sites that you need to rummage through to get exactly what you’re looking for. I personally like physical books because I can go through the index and find what I need fast. I don’t know about you, but I get very side tracked online and I forget what I was going to do.
Which Book(s) To Choose
Why are there so many books? Toddlers are really that hard to understand and we seriously need a guide to help us figure out why. You’re online or at the book store and you’re overwhelmed about which parenting book or books to choose. They’re books that range from all topics imaginable. You’ll find a few that you’ll absolutely love and recommend for years to come. I’m a little different when it comes to books.
My Favorite Parenting Toddlers Book
I tend to stay away from books that are happy-go-lucky and life will be perfect when I’m done types of books. I’ll be honest. That’s not going to happen. Toddlers are unpredictable and they all act differently to every situation. That is why everything you’ve read before about having kids is nil and void now. Yes, I’ve read books on “preparing” for parenthood, but once I got around age 1 1/2 I stopped and let me tell you why.
First, I didn’t have the time to pick up a book or Google anything because of the hectic day and I totally forgot by the end of the day. I glanced over a few, but I only fully read one because I wanted answers. Still to this day I can’t remember the reason I got the book in the first place, but I’m sure I implemented something at one point; who knows. Of course there were a few books I glanced over online like when to potty train and how. If you’re going to get any book, get a potty training one and “try” to prepare yourself for that circus of events. I explain all about that in my potty training post. Make sure you check that out.
My favorite parenting toddlers book has to be, “The Happiest Toddler on the block”. Why? This book explains why toddlers do what they do. Sort of behind the scenes into their mind. I had many aha moments when reading this. It also had good analogues of what was going on that you’d never think of. This is also the same author who wrote “The Happiest Baby on the block”, so you know it’ll be informative.
Once I read “The happiest toddler on the block” I could be more patient and understand my son a little better. Click on the book below to check it out for yourself and leave any questions or comments below.
