Publisher's Summary

Fed up with the constant arguing and feeling like you can' get ahead of your three-year-old's constantly changing wants, needs, and opinions?

Would you love to have a pause button when your little one is throwing a tantrum at the supermarket?

Do you find yourself losing your temper when your kids misbehave and no matter how many times you remind them, they just keep doing the things you want them to stop doing?

The audiobook comes with more than 20 personal examples on how to handle daily life situations with small children. While listening, you will find ways to:

bring new habits into your life that can help children to better understand the rules,
feel less irritable, more relaxed, and be more creative in your reactions,
save your evenings and enjoy adult time without interruption,
teach small children to be more self-sufficient (and responsible!) so that they get ready faster, contribute to household chores, and play independently,
stop feelings of guilt and doubt when you must discipline,
laugh more with your kids and connect deeper.


With children it's difficult to always be on top, especially if the nights are short and you are trying to juggle it all. Having quick and practical tips to stay creative, try something new, and constantly remind yourself of some guidelines on the path towards mindfulness, happiness, and conscious living can only be a good thing.

Get ready for radical family life changes and be prepared for more playful times!

Chapter 1: Developing Parental Zen Habits,
Chapter 2: Setting Home Rules,
Chapter 3: The Art of Communication,
Chapter 4: Fostering Creativity and Responsibility,
Chapter 5: Handling Typical Daily Situations with More Fun.

Loved it! Great book, with wonderful information!

Where does Master the Daily Battles of Parenting Toddlers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It was engaging and interesting to listen to. I love being a parent and I want to learn how to not be so frustrated with the daily battle of raising a strong independent child, while also trying to teach them order and respect, etc., without turning into "Grumpy Dad" all the time. I appreciate the advice given here and expect to put it into action.


What did you like best about this story?

Well with this book, I liked that I could take it with me and read it during my commute. However, I appreciate the advice about how to de-escalate my frustration when I'm feeling it and I appreciated learning to take a step back and realize that these beautiful children are just kids and I shouldn't always hold them to a grown adult's standard. They're learning and I can better help them to learn if I can avoid turning into "Grumpy Dad" and can create a new character who is "Supportive and Understanding Dad" who tries to show his kids why we do things, etc.


Have you listened to any of Joni Abbott’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was a first for me. I hadn't listened to one of her books before, but I did enjoy it.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Moved me? Not, necessarily, but like I mentioned before, I appreciate the advice and insight it gave me.


Any additional comments?

I'd definitely recommend it. I'd compare it to "Parenting with out Power Struggles" It's a great book which helps us as parents to better communicate and work with our kids, instead of misunderstanding them and working 'against' them.
