Baffling and beloved, with the capacity to go from joy to frustration in seconds, young children are some of the most misunderstood people on the planet. Parents and caregivers struggle with these little ones, who are known for their extreme behaviour, from tantrums, resistance, and aggression to separation anxiety, bedtime protests, and not listening. The key to understanding youngsters lies in realizing that their challenging behaviour is not personal, nor is it a disorder or deficit.

Having long been a fan of Dr. Neufeld's work, I was so happy to come across this book. Dr. MacNamara shares so much practical wisdom here that I'm sure to listen to it again and again. I wish everyone with preschool children would have the opportunity to hear the thoughtful approach to raising children. I have a clearer understanding of why my child behaves the way she does and have useful strategies to support us both while we go through life's up and downs together.
