Best for children age 1.5 – 4

Fed up with the constant arguing and feeling like you can’t get ahead of your three-year-old’s constantly changing wants, needs, and opinions?

Always stressed to make the early meeting on time? And by the time you arrive at the daycare you already feel exhausted before your real workday even starts?

Do you only get “no” as an answer, or “more, more, more” before they burst into tears and cry?

Would you love to have a pause button when your little one is throwing a tantrum at the supermarket?

Do you find yourself losing your temper when your kids misbehave and no matter how many times you remind them, they just keep doing the things you want them to stop doing?
There is no such thing as stress-free parenting, and by the way—no perfect parent either.
We will always mess up, that’s part of the game.
But, the good news is that it is possible to get small children to cooperate and to have fun together as a family. It just takes a few minor mental adjustments in the way we, as parents, react.
You have probably noticed that when you feel more relaxed things go smoother, right?

Let me share my tips as a mother of two on how to keep your cool as a parent, have your children listen better, and how to create some wonderful family moments together.

By all means, I have not perfected parenting. Not by a long shot. What works with my family may not always work with yours—and never forget that each child is as unique as the next. Each phase of development can play a role in how you manage your parenting skills also.
But despite the differences between children and families, I have found that a few principles can make managing toddlers much easier:

1. If you can learn to better deal with stress in general, you will feel more energized and be a more relaxed parent.
2. Small children, like most of us, are very driven by habits. Take advantage of this powerful autopilot to model behaviors while raising responsible small people.
3. Talk to your kids in a way that they actually can process your answers and requests, that is non aggressive and invites them to react adequately.

Your parenting tool set to staying calm, eliminating the whining and living a fun family life.

Throughout this book you will find ways to:
• bring new habits into your life and home that can help children to better understand the rules
• feel less irritable; be more relaxed and more creative in your reactions
• save your evenings and enjoy adult time without interruption
• teach young children how to be more self-sufficient (and responsible!), get ready faster, contribute to household chores, and play independently
• stop feelings of guilt and doubt when you must discipline
• pick up new ideas to handle typical parent/child conflicts
• enjoy your children, laugh more, and connect deeper

With children it’s difficult to always be on top, especially if the nights are short and you are trying to juggle it all. Having practical tips to stay creative, try something new, and constantly remind yourself of some guidelines on the path towards mindfulness, happiness, and conscious living can only be a good thing.
Try what speaks to you and use it at the next conflict.

Get ready for radical family life changes and be prepared for more playful times!
