This positive discipline guide has changed the way I handle daily interactions with my two toddlers. The book guides you through the process of letting go of your worries and encourage your child to be independent while she explores the world, with the boundaries you set. It also helps you understand age-appropriate behavior and to recognize the cues of children who are ready to sleep alone and to potty train. And it also includes very informative research in brain development (recent, of course!). This books was so good, I might want to raise a future child following the guidelines that are outlined here. This is a must for every parent of a toddler!
