RH150S011 The Happiest Toddler (Book) Toddlers can drive you bonkers…so adorable and fun one minute…so stubborn and demanding the next! Yet, as unbelievable as it sounds, there is a way to turn the daily stream of “nos” and “don’ts” into “yeses” and hugs…if you know how to speak your toddler’s language. In one of the most useful advances in parenting techniques of the past twenty-five years, Dr. Karp reveals that toddlers, with their immature brains and stormy outbursts, should be thought of not as pint-size people but as pintsize…cavemen. Having noticed that the usual techniques often failed to calm crying toddlers, Dr. Karp discovered that the key to effective communication was to speak to them in their own primitive language. When he did, suddenly he was able to soothe their outbursts almost every time! This amazing success led him to the realization that children between the ages of one and four go through four stages of “evolutionary” growth, each linked to the development of the brain, and each echoing a step in prehistoric humankind’s journey to civilization: • The “Charming Chimp-Child” (12 to 18 months): Wobbles around on two legs, grabs everything in reach, plays a nonstop game of “monkey see monkey do.” • The “Knee-High Neanderthal” (18 to 24 months): Strong-willed, fun-loving, messy, with a vocabulary of about thirty words, the favorites being “no” and “mine.” • The “Clever Caveman” (24 to 36 months): Just beginning to learn how to share, make friends, take turns, and use the potty. • The “Versatile Villager” (36 to 48 months): Loves to tell stories, sing songs and dance, while trying hard to behave. To speak to these children, Dr. Karp has developed two extraordinarily effective techniques: 1) The “fast food” rule — restating what your child has said to make sure you got it right; 2) The four-step rule — using gesture

Calm Mama, Happy Baby The Simple, Intuitive Way to Tame Tears, Improve Sleep, and Help Your Family Thrive. By Derek O’Neill and Jennifer Waldburger Every parent of a newborn feels overwhelmed by the enormity of the tasks at hand: Suddenly responsible for feeds, diaper changes, and trying to sleep, parents are stressed out and anxious. Since babies today are born even more aware, awake, and attuned than previous generations, it’s easy to see why parents--especially mums--are frazzled. The good news is that the cause and effect between parents’ mental and emotional states and their baby’s mood and behaviour works both ways; when parents are calm and centred, their children are calm as well. From consulting in Hollywood’s poshest nurseries to leading sold-out workshops with sleep-deprived parents, Jennifer Waldburger and Derek O’Neill share their proven arsenal of methods to calm parents and their kids, often in seconds. With an eye-opening blend of neuroscience research, personal stories, and cross-cultural insights, "Calm Mama, Happy Baby" empowers mums (and dads) to be proactive about how they are 'feeding' their babies energetically, choosing calm over stress. While many well-meaning parents spend money safety-proofing their homes, they fail to learn the most important thing to safeguard their baby’s emotional health, which is to maintain peace within themselves and within the home. "Calm Mama, Happy Baby" shows parents how to: Stress-proof the baby’s room with a paint colour that soothes instead of stimulates and learn how certain music affects your baby’s mood and behaviour. Stop the Mummy Guilt and turn negative "Mama mantras" into positive ones. Discover why becoming a parent brings up unresolved fears and insecurities and how to put them to rest. Use the proven CALM technique to diffuse any parenting situation
