The book doesn’t feel overwhelming, but empowering. She even mentions how getting your child dressed can be endearing, and it helps frame how important “simple” tasks like dressing and undressing are teachable moments for our babies.
The Parenting Toddlers Workbook discusses everything from temperament to screen time, and sleep needs to boundaries. It’s a phenomenal parenting “manual” steering you towards healthy parenting habits, and away from pitfalls.
Dr. Penry masterfully explains discipline — it’s my favorite section of the book. It’s enlightening, empowering, and encouraging. The insights and research shared in this section of the book reminds caregivers of the true purpose of discipline and how to use it effectively. She also discusses grounding and says, “successful discipline starts with parental self-control”, and I couldn’t agree more.
As an Early Childhood Major, I highly recommend this book. I love that Dr. Penry moves beyond knowledge and teaches parents how to implement what they’ve learned. This is my new favorite gift for expecting families!
i received a preview copy from the publisher in hopes of helping my adult daughter work with her own toddlers. kids have the same emotions as adults, but they haven't learned to process them or to appropriately react to them. with this book, we can better understand our kids so that we can raise better human beings. that's good stuff!
the chapters are predominantly broken down by age group, though the first chapter helps us understand the mind and body of a toddler as well as our role as parents & caregivers. the second chapter is a workbook, a place to write down information as a way for us, as parents, to identify the helps, risks and important influences in our child's mind/experience. it's so easy to follow, but profound impactful.
so many topics are covered: emotions, development, nutrition, routines, bedtimes & rest, potty training and hygiene, important influencers, boundaries and discipline, etc.
it's like a user manual for toddlers.
This book tackles the some of questions we’re all asking about (like timeouts, spanking, figuring out our child's temperament, and screen time) and does so with humor and expertise.
Here’s one of my favorite quotes:
“There is nothing in this world more startling than walking into your living room to find a quiet toddler holding an open Sharpie.”
This psychologist gets it! She understands that parents’ time is limited, and cuts right to the chase on how we can calmly intervene in situations like this, even teaching how to “create hospitality” for our child’s emotions.
Dr. Penry reminds that “the goal of parenting isn’t perfection, it’s persistence”, and warmly supports the reader along this path through her workbook. This is a solid parenting resource, and I look forward to reading her future books!
