    From the Hardcover edition.
    Unnerved by the ceaseless demands of your toddler? Concerned that your two-year-old isn’t developing on schedule? You clearly need to spend some time with Tracy Hogg. Nicknamed the “baby whisperer” by grateful parents because of her extraordinary gift for understanding and connecting with children, Tracy became internationally famous after the smashing success of herNew York Times bestseller Secrets of the Baby Whisperer. Now Tracy is back with the same winning blend of common sense and uncanny intuition.Starting with the simple but essential premise that there is no such thing as a “typical” child, Tracy guides you through her unique programs, including

    • H.E.L.P. (Hold back, Explain, Limit, Praise): the mantra that will remind you of the four elements that are critical to fostering your child’s growth and independence, while at the same time keeping him safe.
    • Using T.L.C. (Talk, Listen, Clarify) to communicate with your toddler, to figure out what she is really thinking, and to best help her express herself.
    • R&R: Routines and Rituals that give structure and predictability to daily life and a sense of continuity to holidays and special occasions.
    • Rehearsals for Change: ways of preparing your toddler for new experiences by encouraging her to practice her skills in the safe, controlled setting of your family.
    • Conscious Discipline: a way of teaching your toddler how to behave and manage his emotions, while being mindful of the lessons you teach with your own behavior.

    Practical, reassuring, and written with wit and energy and boundless enthusiasm for real children and their everyday behavior, this book will be your constant companion during the magical, challenging toddler years.

    • Great advice thats entertaining too!

      I loved the Baby Whisperer and I love this book. I haven't quite finished reading it yet. But I have read about how to control tantrums, keep them from starting and a little bit about disciplining. It categorizes your child so you know how to help them better, whether they are touchy, angel, textbook, spirited, grumpy or a little of mixed. This book is funny with lots of real life experiences, but very informational and useful for everyday life. Not boring to read at all. I would highly recommend it.
