Vous connaissez l'expression: "le bébé ne vient pas au monde avec un manuel d'instruction"?
Et bien, si il y en avait un, ce livre serait le meilleur choix, selon moi.
Je n'ai pas fini de le lire mais je sais que ce livre a changé ma perception de ma fille et des humains en général.
Il est simple, va droit au but, sans détour, n'est pas répétitif ni trop détaillé. Il y a plein d'exemple très graphique. Les explications sont simples et très réalistes.

Je recommende ce livre à tout les parents d'enfants de zéro à cinq ans.

Has some good insight on how, and why your child behaves certain ways. However I don't want to have to act all crazy to communicate with them. the point is to teach them how not to act like that. When I'm at the restaurant with my kids I don't want to have to start stomping my feet and growling at my kid to tell him no!
I believe that we do have to simplify for the child to understand better, but i don't think we have to act like primates just because our little ones have underdeveloped brains!

I ran to the bookstore to get Dr. Karp's new book based on my experience with his phenomenal book about babies. I can say that Dr. Karp has proven how genius he is again. So simple, yet so powerful. No wonder he keeps coming back to Dr. Phil's 101 Parenting show. He has real advice that any parent absolutely needs to hear. It made my life so much easier. I am still practicing my "toddler-ese" but I can see immediate results. The book is not just helpful but it is FUN to read.
I have to say that, by adopting Dr. Karp's methods, I can enjoy my kids more. I have minimized daily struggles with them and maximized fun time we have together. That makes my kids love me even more, especially my 18 months old girl who is a real "Neanderthal in my kitchen".
Thank you Dr. Karp. I love your books! And I am looking forward to seeing your video about toddlers.

Let me first say that I'm a big fan of Dr. Karp's Happiest Baby on the Block book. He had a theory (recreating the womb) and explained several ways to carry it out.
In this book, he has a theory that your child needs to feel understood and you should let them know you understand them by repeating back to them what they just told you, then empathizing. In their words, at their level. ("The Fast Food Rule") That's ALL. The book is full of examples and uses a caveman analogy to get its point across, but basically the message reiterated is the same or a variation on the Fast Food Rule. The video that accompanies this book is only 37 minutes long!
The "Happiest Baby, INC." trademark on the back says it all, I suppose. The main goal here seems to have been to turn out a sequel and fluff it up as much as possible to generate maximum profit.

Format: Hardcover
Although the analogy to prehistoric man is overdone a bit, there are so many sensible, clear strategies to try with 1-4 year olds that really are working for us. Talking toddler-ese has really made a difference in the cooperation we are now getting from our 2 and 3 year olds. Mirroring their feelings and "wants" with short, repeated phrases that reflect the child's words, tone and body lauguage has quickly and almost magically stopped much of my toddlers' defiant, annoying behaviors. Karp emphasizes that what you say to someone who is really upset is less important than HOW YOU SAY IT. And his theory has proven itself to be correct in our home.
The only suggestion in the book that I have a problem with is using a hook and eye latch to lock a child in his room even for a very short time-out. I feel this can be scary for the child and although it may get the child to know that you do mean business, I prefer not to get compliance from my children with fear, guilt or humiliation. Karp does suggest that you explain to the child in "toddler-ese" how the locking mechanism works so that he will know the door will not open when mom uses it.
I also recommend another one of my favorite parenting reference books as a compliment to Karp's hardcover book called "The Pocket Parent". This is a very practical, quick read, little paperback book loaded with many positive discipline and communications tips written exclusively for parents of 2-5 year olds. Peppered with humor and organized alphabetically by behaviors such as: Anger, Bad Words, Biting, Bedtime and Mealtime Refusals, the "Gimmees", Interrrupting, Morning "Crazies", and Whining...Pocket Parent is a real sanity saver. Both books will lift your spirits with specific ideas to try as well as loads of compassionte support from authors that have been there, too... especially when you feel you are just about at your wits' end with the little ones.

I am a psychoeducater. I work with preschool children experiencing developpemental delays and behavior difficulties. I work with their parents and daycare educators. This book has proven to be an extremely beautiful and remarcably helpful book. I highly recommend this book for anyone educating young children.
