Having successfully helped parents to calm and connect with their baby in Secrets of the Baby Whisperer, Tracy Hogg now provides the bible for parents who've made it through the first year with baby and are now faced with a delightful, yet demanding toddler. In Secrets of the Baby Whisperer for Toddlers Tracy reveals the know-your-toddler quiz to help determine how best to help and 'handle' your toddler. She explains the critical techniques for fostering your toddler's growth and independence and advises on discipline, one of the most troublesome toddler issues, as well as socialising and potty training and much, much more. This is a must-have manual for all parents of toddlers.
Publishers Weekly, 2001-12-24 In the follow-up to her popular Secrets of the Baby Whisperer, Hogg offers communication techniques designed to ease parents and children through the trying moments of toddlerhood. To her trademark techniques of "T.L.C." (talk, listen, clarify) and "R&R" (routines and rituals), she adds "H.E.L.P." for raising toddlers: Hold yourself back; Encourage exploration; Limit their exposure to extremely frustrating or overstimulating situations; Praise. Using real-life examples, Hogg shows how parents, sometimes unwittingly, sabotage their own parenting through their anxious behavior. When a mother talks about how nothing seems to hold her son's attention, Hogg suggests she stop overscheduling and allow the little boy to do nothing chances are the overstimulation is making his behavior worse. While the book's focus is on defusing difficult situations, Hogg offers basic advice on most aspects of childrearing, including toilet training, protecting newly ambulatory toddlers, sibling rivalry and tantrums. Her suggestions are occasionally humorous and always practical. On security blankets, she suggests, "Take it! If you're traveling make sure you take whatever item makes your child feel safe." Readers who are already familiar with Baby Whisperer will benefit most from this book, as there's not much of an introduction to Hogg's philosophy. Still, the title offers a fresh and useful perspective for parents. (Feb.) Forecast: A 15-city tour and extensive national promotion along with the track record for the first book should make this one a big seller. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
