    Default Toddler behavior/development book recommendations

    It's official! DS is definitely turning into quite the cheeky and energetic little guy and I'm anticipating having my hands very full once he's officially moving. Don't get me wrong, I think he is hilarious! But, I would love some recommendations for books that give me more tips on helping establish boundaries while also encouraging his little personality. I know of a few titles (The Mighty Toddler, 1-2-3 Magic, Toddler Taming) but was wondering what people found useful themselves.

    I was reminded that I've been meaning to ask this for ages when at lunch DS was being stubborn and wanting to scoop stuff on his spoon himself (he had his own spoon) and flicked food ALL over me and when I calmly said under my breath 'ugh, DS you're making such a mess' he BUSTED out in hysterics laughing and did it again making himself laugh even harder!!!

    He's also very stubborn. Not sure where he gets that from....::glances away innocently::

    I just had a look at my WW app and we're right bang in the middle of WW8.

    The last sentence of the first paragraph made me laugh! So him, everything has to be his idea.

    I've heard that "Raising your spirited child" is a good one, yet to find a copy though.

    Thanks girls! I'll have a look on book depository and amazon, I prefer hard copies for books like these so that I can flip through for reference when needed, find that such a pain on my kindle.

    Anybody else have any other suggestions?
