Description

Real-world, from-the-trenches toddler parenting advice from the author of the best-selling Oh Crap! Potty Training. 

Toddlers - commonly defined as children aged between two and five years old - can be a horribly misunderstood bunch. What most parents view as bad behavior is in fact just curious behavior. Toddlerdom is the age of individuation, seeking control, and above all, learning how the world works. But this misunderstanding between parents and child can lead to power struggles, tantrums, and even diminished growth and creativity. 

The recent push of early intellectualism coupled with a desire to “make childhood magical” has created a strange paradox - we have three-year-olds with math and Mandarin tutors who don’t know how to dress themselves and are sitting in their own poop. We are pushing the toddler mind beyond its limit but simultaneously keeping them far below their own natural capabilities. 

In the frank, funny, and totally authentic Oh Crap! I Have a Toddler, social worker Jamie Glowacki helps parents work through what she considers the five essential components of raising toddlers:

  • Engaging the toddler mind
  • Working with the toddler body
  • Understanding and dealing with the toddler behavior
  • Creating a good toddler environment
  • You, the parent

Oh Crap! I Have a Toddler is about doing more with less - and bringing real childhood back from the brink of overscheduled, overstimulated helicopter parenting. With her signature down-and-dirty friend-to-friend advice, Jamie is here to help you experience the joy of parenting again and giving your child - and yourself - the freedom to let them grow at their own pace and become who they are.

So good

Excellent book. One of the best, if not THE best parenting book I have read. Practical, makes you think instead of regurgitating a bunch of garbage we already know. There is an abundance of great pregnancy books, baby books and older children books, but for the toddler years, a serious scarcity. This one is it. Thank you Jamie.

You got this!

WOW! This book hit my parenting sweet spot - conscious, funny, actionable, REAL! I loved the organization of the book into two parts - addressing the parent side first before the kid side, adjusting our own "stuff" where we really have the power to change. So validating to have a book acknowledge that parents and kids both need their needs met. Excellent author narration - finishing the book I felt like after having coffee with an awesome friend - inspired and empowered.

Common sense parenting

Her book and podcast have really helped me in these rough years. When you think about it, a lot of what she says makes absolute sense. Also I don't feel like I am being lectured, like most parenting books.

Disarming

Good tips I hadn't heard before packaged in a nice cohesive way. Written for insecure women, however. The near constant charity with the "no judgement, girl" lines got in the way for me, but I was glad to read it. That is my only gripe.

Good info - bad language?

The info was valuable, sensible and useful in dealing with my 2year old granddaughter whom I watch. The style was breezy and generally enjoyable but I was surprised by the liberal profanity: eg : ‘fucked up’, ‘losing your shit’. I found it jarring and unprofessional. Do I use profanity? Yes. Too much. But only in private adult conversation, and not when I’m with children or in a work environment. Sticking to milder euphemisms would have improved the book, we don’t need more succumbing to to the crass vulgarisms that are engulfing us.

would rate 5 stars if not for swearing words

This book has some good points. Not everything appeals to me personally. I had my doubts by the name of the book that its not my style.. Disappointing that author uses swear words def can not listen weather kids can hear it or not.
