Your Two-Year-Old: Terrible or Tender Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Are two-year-olds really so terrible, or does the world have a slightly skewed view of this sometimes difficult, sometimes adorable lot? Drs. Ames and Ilg, recognized worldwide as authorities on child behavior and development, offer parents practical advice and enlightening psychological insights on children this age.

 

What are two-year-old girls and boys thinking and feeling? How do they see others around them? With humor and compassion, the authors describe the general characteristics of these complex toddlers: their physical growth trends, their emotional and psychological maturation. Also included are insights into how two-year-olds behave with family and other children, and advice on how to handle them, as well as tings to avoid.

 

Included in this book:

• A two-year-old’s view of the world—and himself

• Bath and dressing routines

• Sex differences

• Stories from real life

• A list of age-appropriate toys and books

• A bibliography for parents

 

“Louise Bates Ames and her colleagues synthesize a lifetime of observation of children, consultation, and discussion with parents. These books will help parents to better understand their children and will guide them through the fascinating and sometimes trying experiences of modern parenthood.”—Donald J. Cohen, M.D., Director, Yale Child Study Center, Irving B. Harris Professor of Child Psychiatry, Pediatrics, and Psychology, Yale School of Medicine

Synopsis:

Ames is a child psychologist. She is a co-founder and Associate Director of the Gesell Institute of Human Development in New Haven, CT.
