Editorial Reviews

Review

"Rarely does someone with so much knowledge write in a way that is so accessible and heartwarming. What Tovah has created will help every parent stand on their own loving ground, assured that they are creating the foundations for their child to grow into an adult who will have a deep sense of purpose and the will to effect much-needed change." (Kim John Payne, author of Simplicity Parenting, Beyond Winning and The Soul of Discipline )

"Dr. Klein has provided a critical resource for parents -- she combines state-of-the-science research with examples of and practical guidelines for everyday toddler-parent interactions. Most importantly, Dr. Klein appreciates that every toddler and parent is unique and therefore, there is no single parenting 'recipe.'" (Nim Tottenham, Ph.D., developmental neuroscientist at UCLA )

"How Toddlers Thrive shares Tovah Klein’s truly unique perspective—a thorough knowledge of child development research and practical experience working effectively with hundreds of toddlers and their families. She illuminates how the world looks and feels to toddlers and shares practical advice, such as helping toddlers learn the life skill of taking on challenges. It is the wisdom we need to thrive as parents!" (Ellen Galinsky, author of Mind in the Making and president of the Families and Work Institute )

“In this wonderful book, Tovah Klein draws on her deep understanding of toddlers and their development to offer a treasure-trove of wise and practical advice. Placing a special emphasis on seeing the world through toddlers' eyes, Klein shows how we can help them meet life's challenges with confidence and enthusiasm. How Toddlers Thrive will be cherished by parents and professionals alike.” (William Crain, author of Reclaiming Childhood: Letting Children Be Children in Our Achievement-Oriented Society )

"Dr. Klein's wonderful book is a parenting milestone, unraveling the mysteries of your toddler while helping you create a clear path for his or her future happiness and success." (Harley A. Rotbart, M.D., author of No Regrets Parenting: Turning Long Days and Short Years into Cherished Memories with Your Kids )

"Tovah Klein’s book is as much about parenting as it is about toddlers. Like a wise and practiced friend, she introduces us to the world of toddlers, helping us understand the wonder, worry, and bewilderment toddlers experience and the challenges and joys of parenting them. The book is filled with fabulous advice, informative anecdotes, and a point of view that teaches you to trust yourself no matter how demanding your little ones may seem to be." (Samuel J. Meisels, Executive Director of the Buffett Early Childhood Institute at the University of Nebraska )

“If only there was one single, sensible, sympathetic book that answered all your toddler questions. Well there is. And you're holding it: An easy-to-read source that explains what toddlers do, why they do it, and whether you have to jump in or not. The good news is: Often the answer is ‘not.’” (Lenore Skenazy, founder of the book and the blog Free-Range Kids )

“There are a lot of parenting books out there, but this one is unique—it's told from the point of view of the child! Dr. Klein's firsthand experiences with young children provides parents an understanding of child development within the context of family dynamics. She doesn't judge parents, instead she empowers them with knowledge about the whys behind their children's behaviors.” (Rosemarie T. Truglio, PhD, SVP of Curriculum and Content for Sesame Workshop )

“Child psychologist Klein, director of the Barnard Center for Toddler Development, has a keen understanding of what makes toddlers tick. . . . Parents of the 2–5 set will find plenty of practical ideas and strategies to make the preschool years less stressful, creating what Klein describes as a relaxed and loving ‘toddlertopia.'" (Publishers Weekly)

“I learned a few fascinating philosophies about young kids that have already helped me better understand my child. I highly suggest you pick up a copy.” (Popsugar)

“With wisdom, sensitivity and humor, Dr. Klein describes the push-pull of children from two to five…If you have a toddler in your life—or may have one soon—this is the book for you.” (Work & Family Life blog)

“Thanks to How Toddlers Thrive I am learning how to change the way I look at my son to looking through his eyes.” (Akron Ohio Moms blog)

“How Toddlers Thrive is the best book on raising toddlers I’ve come across.” (NYC Dad’s Group blog)

I find it refreshing to read a book that so carefully considers the child in guiding parents through a challenging parenting time period.” (A Mother’s Boutique blog)

“What Dr. Klein’s book does is help parents develop a plan to establish a family framework of boundaries and limits and then let their children explore their world through play, humor and enough love to allow them to make mistakes with a loving, supportive place to land.” (Savvy Sassy Moms blog)

“An essential must-have pick for parenting. This down-to-earth book clearly explains the scientific intricacies of how a toddler’s brain functions and what parents can do to help the child’s development in a positive and nurturing way. With a heartfelt foreword written by Sarah Jessica Parker who has personally benefited from Dr. Klein’s wisdom, this book even provides tips for “cracking the code” on some of the most challenging toddler behaviors like tantrums and fussy eating habits.” (Momtrends blog)

"Tovah taught me how to resist the temptation to fix everything, and instead give my children the opportunity to learn how to problem-solve for themselves." (Sarah Jessica Parker )
