|Lucas with Daddy last week.|
So over the course of the past few months both Matt & I have come to realize that our little boy is not going to be taught how to live a healthy life easily. We've sought out advice, read chat boards, and discussed amongst ourselves. We've taken from how we've been taught by our own parents and attempted to modify it with our own ideals. And yet, we still have battles. And we've been losing.
After some prayer and long thought, I came to realize I should call on the assistance of my trusted friend, Liz. She is the kindest, most intelligent mother and woman I know. I remember her honestly confiding in me and telling me of her challenges with their little one too. The change from infancy into toddlerhood is not an easy one for all of us.
Liz recommended the following book: The Happiest Toddler On The Block, by Harvey Karp, M.D.
I'm pretty sure we owe her the World. And a huge hug.
If you're unsure about discipline, tantrums, time-outs, and how to handle your toddlers inability to control his reactions to life, this book is for you!
