Around the time your child turns three - and almost before you realize it has happened - the tumult and unpredictability of the toddler years give way to a more settled, civilized lifestyle. Nevertheless, these little bundles of energy seem to be growing in all directions at once: talking a blue streak, dressing themselves, learning to remember, reason and imagine. But they still need you as much as ever. In The Preschool Years, parents will find cpaters on: - new skills and experiences (I Can Do It!) - daily routines (Night Night, Sleep Tight) - discipline (I Don't Hafta!) - creative play (Let's Pretend) With its funny, constructive and sympathetic tone, The Preschool Years is an invaluable addition to any parent's bookshelf. The Steps and Stages series blends expert advice and parental experience to tackle the typical - but by no means simple - challenges and milestones you and your child will face at each stage of development. Chock full of anecdotes, tips and resources, these unique books address the everyday, practical issues of raising kides - issues that all parents wonder about, but few parenting guides discuss.
