Top Customer Reviews
So much of what we've experienced with our daughter now at 15 months is SPOT ON either in terms of the things she's done at various ages and stages or ways we can best help her learn, adjust and function in this world by understanding her point of view. As someone who is a scientist but also has experience with kids, I've learned a good deal from this book and have found it helpful in communicating with my daughter, help to ease her frustration in learning/communicating (by understanding her perspective & wants) and have more enjoyment & productivity (both parent & toddler) in our day to day life.
There are some occasional helpful items here, but mostly it's stuff that is entirely common sense.
