    Default Recommendations on toddler taming type books

    Struggling with my 2 toddlers at the moment. They are almost 3 & 1.5 years old. Was looking at the book shop the other day at all the parenting books in the self help section...so many to choose from. Has anyone read any that were particularly helpful?

    There is the "when I'm feeling sad,angry happy etc books I read. And I got one mini book from the post office called Henry's good manners (Henry isn't the real name but I can't remember the name) after reading the book DS 1 and DS 2 would be good for a whole hour lol. Once my oldest was 4 found he was so much more settle and DS 2 followed his lead.

    EDIT
    So sorry I just read your post wrong didn't read the self help part thought you were looking for books to read your children lol so sorry

    What struggles are you having?

    How about:

    Unconditional Parenting
    Children are People Too
    How to Talk so Kids Will Listen and Listen so Kids Will Talk

    Can't think of any others at the moment 😝 but they are a few good ones that came to mind

    Hope that helps

    I am currently reading 'How to Raise Your Spirited Child', so far it's been really good...

    I bought this book a while ago in preparation - our time is coming!
    "It's OK Not to Share… And Other Renegade Rules"
    http://www.heathershumaker.com/book.html

    Check out her blog. She has two boys herself. If you like her style then her book is well worth getting.

    Where abouts do you live Op?

    If WA, there is a free course you can do called PPP. Ask your CHN for more information.

    Ps I would go to the library and get them out rather than buy one. Once you know you like the book, then consider purchasing.

    I love reading book reviews on Amazon before I part with cash too.

    Thank you. Will take a look at these.

    My biggest struggles are with my almost 3 year olds temper. He gets really angry when he doesn't get his own way or something doesn't work like he thinks it should. Then he starts throwing things with quite a bit of force. It's getting quite dangerous and I'm worried he will hit one of us or break a window. Confiscating toys he throws and time out aren't working.

    He also lashes out at his little brother so I spend half the day separating them and comforting the little one as it always ends in tears.

    And the tantrums...from both of them.
