I love this book and I highly recommend it for all my fellow Momees and Dadees to read!

The chapters are small and to the point and really help out with the questions that are running through our minds with a toddler in our lives.

Having a newly turned 2 year old myself I could relate to each chapter up to the preschool chapters; which will be helpful in a little over a year from now.

Mike and I have been trying to figure out the best solutions for discipline, picky eating, bedtime routines, and behavior issues. This book touches upon all of these topics and I think you will enjoy it as much as we did.

You can order this book on AmazonΒ or see if your local library has a copy.

I wish I knew about this author and her books sooner, she also has a book out : Help! My Baby Came Without Instructions
