    If WA, there is a free course you can do called PPP. Ask your CHN for more information.
    I'm in Queensland. I have heard about the PPP course. I'm pretty sure they do it here. Will look into it. Thank you for the suggestion.

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

    No good suggestions here as I'm struggling with my 3yo DD too! She's becoming quite a terror. Bath & bedtime are becoming a nightmare and she fights us every step of the way! She's so defiant at the moment.

    Also the yelling, the yelling and screaming is so annoying!!

    I have a 3mo so it's tough managing her when I have a baby attached to me.

    Another suggestion (if you can organise it) is spending a bit of quality 1 on 1 time with each. I think the saying goes they need it the most when you least feel like giving it to them.

    Just thought if something else, when you have decided in which book/a to buy go to booko it compares the prices of each book at different online stores.

    I read the happiest toddler on the block but I don't know if it's helping. I am gentle with him don't use negative language and try to use 'cave-man' words to show him I know what he wants. Sometimes I wonder if I'm just allowing him to get away with things and be more naughty but other times I think it's because he doesn't know enough words yet and can't express himself. So I'm persevering until he knows more words and will reassess my tactics if he's still naughty. The ladies at the day care call him 'strong willed' but then they also seem to think he is very normal for his age.

    The book is very handy for ideas on distracting your toddler and ways to entertain them briefly/do positive things so you either don't tell them off at all or at least are doing positive things together so you don't feel like all you do is tell them off. Things like acting as though you're silly or making up stories with teddies and toys that are hidden lessons, or making a bedtime ritual of telling your toddler all the good things they did that day. It's also very good for helping you to think from your toddler's point of view and understand what they are feeling if nothing else.

    So true!!! It would appear that I might have an 'introverted spirited child' and an 'extraverted spirited child' in readying this book, looking forward to reading more. x
