Why do some children thrive, and others struggle?
The answers may surprise you.
New research indicates that the seeds for adult success are
actually planted in the toddler years, ages two to five. In
How Toddlers Thrive, child psychologist and director of the
renowned Barnard Center for Toddler Development Dr. Tovah P.
Klein cracks the preschooler code, revealing what you can do
to help your toddler grow into a fulfilled child and
adult—while helping you and your toddler live more happily
together, every day.
Dr. Klein’s research and firsthand work with thousands of
toddlers explains why the toddler brain is best suited to
laying the foundation for success. New science reveals that
drivers such as resilience, self-reliance, selfregulation,
and empathy are more critical to success than simple
intelligence. Dr. Klein explains what you can do today to
instill these key qualities in your toddler during this
crucial time, so they are on track and ready to learn when
they enter school at age five.
How Toddlers Thrive explains why the toddler years are
different from any other period during childhood, what is
happening in children’s brains and bodies at this age that
makes their behavior so turbulent, and why your reaction to
their behavior—the way you speak to, speak about, and act
toward your toddler— holds the key to a successful tomorrow
and a happier today. This provocative new book will inspire
you to be a better parent and give you the tools to help you
nurture your child’s full potential. Stop fighting with your
child and start enjoying every minute of your time with them
. . . while planting the seeds of happiness and success that
will last a lifetime.
