ToddlerCalm: A guide for calmer toddlers and happier parents

English books


By Sarah Ockwell-Smith

ToddlerCalm turns mainstream parenting techniques on their head and offers a genuine alternative to raising your toddler.

Are you looking for ways to cope with your toddler without resorting to the naughty step or controlled crying? ToddlerCalm offers a gentle approach to parenting that will help you to enjoy your toddler, to understand the limitations of sticker charts and time out, to have the confidence to ignore the experts and to parent your own child with empathy and trust.

Sarah Ockwell-Smith shares the empowering strategies of her popular ToddlerCalm classes and workshops and deconstructs commonly held beliefs about toddler behavior.

Contents include:

  • The science of toddler sleep
  • Carrots and sticks - the problem with current popular parenting techniques
  • Coping with a picky eater
  • Communication - toddler style
  • Avoiding difficult situations
  • The importance of unconditional love
  • Why you don't need to be permissive to parent respectfully
