Then gets way to ... Hippie end of Progressive ... only way I can say it.
Seriously! Toilet training by just taking diapers away cold turkey.
Letting them go all over themselves, your home, wherever until they decide to use the potty!
Even if it takes weeks. Where is this even practical?
Children need less of this type of "respect" and more modeling and boundaries.
And yes, some expectations and teaching go a long way.
Childhood is now considered one of the most critical stages of development of the future personality. The toddler stage gets all the attention of scientists and parents alike because of the many dramatic changes that take place in this short span of time. The engagement of the parents with the toddler is intense, because of the rapid changes that impinge on the young one. The pace of events are puzzling as well as frustrating for both the parties--parents and the child.
The dilemma of the toddlers is described thus in the book: "Using the new found ability to walk, and lacking in judgement and reason, the toddler ramrods into life." What emanate from the disequilibrium of physical and mental abilities are destructiveness, messiness, motor restlessness, clinging, inability to separate,whining, temper tantrums and so on. The list looks daunting for the parents, but take heart, the author, with his rich experience in the field, prescribes easy ways to tackle each of the maladies.
Toilet Training, one of the landmark constituents of childhood, is described in its four distinct phases, which every caring parent should follow by letter and spirit. The guidelines offered by the author come alive in the context of real life cases that accompany each 'problem' behavior.
The author's compassionate handling of the issues point to one truth: toddler stage is to be celebrated by the parents, not grudged. "By the time he is four years old, the toddler is gone forever, replaced by a much different being."
If you still see this stage as "terrible twos" it's your problem, the child is least interested. He is busy marveling the new world unfolding before him every single minute of the day.

Interesting book. I know first hand how frustrating it can be with a toddler. The no's. The tantrums for seemingly no reason. The frustration to communicate. On the other hand, as nuts as these kids can drive you, they're a lot of fun. My daughter, for example, at the age of two, argued with me that the word "horray" is actually "parade." So now we have a family joke and say "PARADE!" when we're happy about something.
The book is short and sweet and has facts about what's happening with your child. It's nice to understand that they're going through an enormous amount of change in a very short time. Easy read... saves time for the parent of a toddler who is always on the run!
