Here’s how to support your toddler when your second child is born. This is a practical guide to parenting mindfulness and finding peace in the frantic world of babyhood and toddler-dom. It gives insights into what is needed for calm parenting, amidst a sea of nappies, feeds, tears, toys, cuddles and laughter.
In this story you’ll share the escapades of toddler Liam and his family as they prepare for and adjust to the new addition to the family. In this light-hearted and insightful book, parenting author Val Mullally reflects upon the questions that are on the heart of every parent having a second baby:
* How do I prepare my toddler for a new sibling
* How to meet the challenges of parenting a toddler as well as a baby
* How to create win-win solutions when relationships get stressed
* What children need to truly thrive
* How to still be a person myself!
This is not a toddler taming book; rather it’s a book that encourages the parent to perceive and respond to the young child’s experience of life at the time of a new arrival. Val gives you a peek into Danish Parenting, and offers parental guidance to reduce family stress, toddler temper tantrums and acting out behaviours, as you discover the art of coping with two. Sharing heart-warming moments, this book unfolds three core principles that can strengthen your bond with your toddler and your baby.
This is the book for every parent who is expecting - or already has - a baby and who has a toddler, or preschooler, on board.
It is also an inspiring read for anyone with an interest in parenting and childcare, including grandparents and other relatives, those working with toddlers and preschoolers, and those supporting young families.
Buy this book if you are someone who wants to develop authentic parent-child relationships, and live more joyfully with the children in your life.
