I have a nearly 2 year old who is full of beans and cute and funny and loving and wonderful, but OMG does he know how to push my buttons. I realise that probably all toddlers go through stages of hating nappy changes, buggy, car seat, getting dressed etc but he's hated, resisted and fought all those things daily since he was physically able to and I am frankly exhausted. He also has no comprehension of the word 'no'. NONE. So different from DD who was always pretty compliant and I feel completely at a loss as to how to handle him. Please can anyone who has had toddlers with a similar personality recommend a good book that can teach me some strategies to handle him and help me stay calm?

Toddler calm by Sarah ockwell smith and Janet lansburys blog are both good reads. They work with both my girls ( one is a teenager!)

I second Janet Lansbury. She has a good website and Facebook page.
