"Toddler. User manual. Usage tips, troubleshooting and service tips ”is a handbook for parents with a slight grain of salt. In terms of form, not content (the latter is created by a doctor of psychology and a doctor of "fatherly" sciences). Refers to "handling and servicing" a toddler between 12 and 48 months of age. The book is recommended especially for daddies and people with a typically strict mind, who like detailed instructions, diagrams, charts and clear directions. He answers many difficult questions: how to behave when a small child begins to force something to cry, when he gets angry, how to teach a child to wait or play independently.

The manual consists of eight chapters. The first is about upgrading your home and means of transport, which is what you should do when your toddler is one year old and is passing the baby stage. It lists in detail what accessories for sleeping, "cleaning" and dressing at this stage will be necessary.

Subsequently, he devotes a lot of space to the general principles of care, including how to pick up a child who is over a year old and how to carry it (way to piggyback and pig). He teaches how to praise and comfort the toddler, lists which toys will hit the bull's eye during this period (balls, blocks, push and pull toys). Although the textbook is written in simple sentences and has the form of a classic instruction, it devotes a lot of space to building emotional ties and close relationships with the child. Explaining what is important for a child and parent to live easier and how to achieve it step by step.

The authors devoted a lot of space to feeding a small child, i.e. the methods of switching from breastfeeding or a bottle to drinking from a cup. For example, from very specific advice, the authors recommend filling a cup with a liquid known by the child, soak the mouthpiece in it, then put it in the baby's mouth. Fill the mug up to the full, previously used bottle only a little (this is best taken from the toddler's eyes, allowing to drink from the bottle only in the feeding chair). In the morning (breakfast) they recommend serving a meal from a mug - non-spill. Then give it when the toddler is most hungry and interested in food. It is recommended to start replacing feeding in the middle of the day, then late afternoon feeding, then morning and finally bed feeding. Shorten each night feeding, finish it by making sure that the baby is awake.

In the manual you can also find tips on learning how to potty, eat yourself or wash yourself, and even a first aid guide.

Interesting tips that can visualize the book's value also apply to the ways of learning how to wait. Every parent is more or less aware of how important this skill is in everyday life, when we ask the toddler to wait instead of whining or even failing because we are currently unable to do what he asks.
What advice do the authors of the book give? Here is the instruction:

  1. Ask the toddler to sit at the table. Place an object (small toy, snack) in front of him with a low degree of attractiveness.
  2. Set the stopwatch for a few seconds and gently hold its hands on your lap. When the stopwatch finishes timing, let your child know that they can pick up the object in front of them.
  3. Gradually increase the attractiveness of the item and increase the waiting time by removing the toddler from the eyes.
  4. If your toddler moans and wants to grab an item ahead of time, try the next day.

Some of these tips will certainly associate with "training", or more nicely writing - "education too far-reaching". Others will find them useful, calling them tips that are worth using in practice. In this way, a division will be drawn between those who consider the book valuable and those who strongly discourage it. Which group are you in, Dear Reader? :)
