Overview

Profusely illustrated and eminently accessible, this indispensable manual provides hundreds of practical—and occasionally unorthodox—ideas to help parents cope with  developmental issues such as throwing food and always saying no, safety conflicts such as running in the parking lot, and interpersonal issues such as teasing siblings and refusing to share toys. A final section also includes advice for parents who have reached the end of their rope and have become angry or frustrated.
