Toddlers are many, many wonderful things. They also whine. A LOT. Perhaps some more than others, depending on how spoiled they are. Regardless of that, we parents of toddlers are guaranteed of one sure thing at this stage of the parenting trip.
They whine. A lot. (Just thought I’d repeat myself there). While there are a plethora of books around that you can stock up on when your brains have turned to goo in a desperate attempt to not join in on the regular melting, I’m thinking perhaps it is the TODDLERS who could benefit from some books themselves.
Books on some of the things they do best, like whining, bossing, and refusing food. You know what I’m talking about. It’s okay to admit it. As much as our offspring at this age are beautiful, sweet, adorable, precious, and (mostly), innocent; talking and joking about the fact that they can also be little zombie, brain-sucking monsters is OKAY. We’re still good parents when we make these admissions.
We’re AWESOME parents when we get them books addressing these less than shiny bits about how they learn and develop. Us? We have enough books. Enough advice already. I’d like more pretty pictures, dark, morbid humor, and hidden/not-so hidden teachings please. More of that please. (Less bossy, whiny, picky toddlers.)
