Best parenting books for toddlers

Raising a toddler has some very specific challenges and problems. In this article we will review some of the best parenting books for toddlers which address the specific problems that parents normally face. Problems such as disciplining your toddler, making healthy food for toddlers, getting your toddler into a good sleep pattern, potty training your toddler and so on.

Toddler food

Toddlers can be finicky eaters, they go through phases where they won't eat certain food like vegetables or meat. However toddlers still need proper nutrition, having a limited diet can adversely affect the long term development of their minds and bodies.

This book has a few recipes which try to sneak healthy food into toddler favorites meals for instance peas into pancakes. Just stick to the recipes because the author has tested them and they do taste great.

Even if your toddler is eating well, adding a few good recipes to your arsenal will just improve their diet.

1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2 to 12

It's just impossible to have a happy family without implementing a suitable form of discipline for toddlers. This may be hard for some parents because they love their kids and don't enjoy disciplining them. However if you want your toddler to grow up to be a polite successful individual you have to start shaping their behavior early in life. Remember your child can have many friends but only 2 parents.

The book takes more of a 'get your toddler's cooperation' than 'get your toddler's obedience' approach. Also 1-2-3 Magic teaches parents to say what they mean and mean what they say, not make empty threats.

I would recommend this parenting book for all parents, not just ones with strong willed toddlers.

The No-Cry Sleep Solution for Toddlers and Preschoolers

When it comes to toddlers and sleeping problems there is no one problem with one solution. Every toddler is different. Some issues toddler may have include separation anxiety, moving from a cot to their own bed, waking in the middle of the night , nightmares, teething, toddlers who don't nap, toddlers who crawl into parents beds.

The book takes a very analytical approach. It starts by asking you a list of questions intended to find your specific problems and then suggests solutions for those specific problems.

Toilet Training in Less Than A Day

This book has been around for more than 40 years. But if it works, so why change it? The methods might seem a bit harsh, but the book is aimed at avoiding you and your toddler's embarrassment in public.

It uses several learning methods and positive motivation to get your toddler potty trained. If you follow the book's directions carefully, you and your toddler should have a short and positive a toilet training experience.

If you are able to potty train your toddler in a timely fashion, it will save you a fortune in diapers.
