The Terrible Two's - A Parent's Guide Review

As you may all remember I posted back in the summer about James and his tantrums, well I'm happy to say that he is finally turning a corner with them. He doesn't have them as often or for as long a period of time. Which is definitely a step in the right direction in my eyes.


I was asked to review The Terrible Two's - A Parent's Guide from Need2Know Books. The book is priced at £9.99 but can also be bought as an ebook for £3.99. The guide is written by author Shanta Everington. She is a parent, writer and qualified early years teacher. The book is made up of 103 pages and has 10 chapters. These chapters are:
  1. Understanding the Terrible Twos
  2. Your Child's Emotions, Behaviour and Needs
  3. Freedom From Limits
  4. Play Time
  5. Sleep
  6. Meal Times
  7. Toilet Training Without Tears
  8. Childcare and Early Education
  9. Siblings
  10. Seeking Help

Although I've been through the tears and tantrums before with both Callum and Nathan James has definitely been the worst I'm not sure if its because he is the youngest or if he is just learnt from his brothers how to get his own way! This book has definitely helped me to remember that all children like to push boundaries and that he isn't different from other children of the same age. 


Some of the time I have felt that James and his moods have been down to me and the rest of the family, the guide explains that this isn't the case at all and even helps parents to stop feeling badly about how their children  are behaving through "the terrible twos"and gives them an understanding of why a child may be behaving as they are. Most importantly if you feel you are unable to cope don't be afraid to ask for help as there are people out there who can and will help you.


I give the guide a rating of 4/5. it has been worth a read just to remind me that there will be an end to his tantrums and tears and that I will get my sanity back.
