About the book

From the widely acclaimed How To Talk series, discover tried-and-tested communication strategies to survive – and thrive – with children ages 2-7.

The all-new content in this book deals with struggles familiar to every parent, relative, teacher and childminder. How do you respond to the toddler who won't brush his teeth? The pre-schooler who pinches the baby? The child who throws everything she can reach?

It's hard to be a little kid. It's hard to be an adult responsible for that little kid. And it's really hard to think about effective communication when the toast is burning, the baby is crying and you're exhausted.

This book will help readers do just that. Organised according to everyday challenges and conflicts, and including real-life examples and the series' trademark cartoons, this book is a survival manual of communication tools, including a chapter that addresses the special needs of children with sensory processing or autism spectrum disorders.

Praise for the How To Talk series

“No peace-loving parent should be without a copy.” – Good Housekeeping

“Full of insights and techniques that can help restore harmony in warring households.” – Time Out
