Making the "Terrible" Twos Terrific!
Some parents associate 2-year-old children with tantrums, defiance, and getting into everything. But the 2-year-old is also in the midst of one of the most significant transitions in the human life cycle. This book provides a guide for parents to help them understand the nature and course of their child's development and behavior at the 2-year-old stage and change this time into one of the most successful periods in the parent-child relationship. The seven chapters are as follows: (1) "Understanding Your Two-year-Old"; (2) "Promoting Healthy Development"; (3) "Creative Discipline"; (4) "Adventures On (and around) the Great White Water Chair" (on toilet training); (5) "No More Bedtime Blues"; (6) "Territoriality and Aggression, or (Bap!) 'Mine!'"; and (7) "Day Care vs. Parent Care", or "Who's Minding the Store?" Each chapter includes a question and answer section. Contains 27 references. (AP)
