Every parent needs this book!

I took a STEP class when I was pregnant with my son 30 years ago and loved it. My granddaughter is a toddler and I found myself wishing I had saved my STEP book from long ago. I was surprised and thrilled when I found that their are newer versions of this book available. I purchased one for myself. After I received it I realized I had to share this book with other parents. So I bought 3 more as gifts. This book is wonderful! If you’re a first time parent it’s a must have. This would make a wonderful baby shower gift. I will probably buy a few more books to give as gifts. Every parent should have this book!

Excellent Approach to Understanding and Managing Young Children

This STEP Handbook, part of the STEP program (Systematic Training for Effective Parenting,) is an excellent, clear, easy to follow approach to understanding the developmental needs of young children. It gives specific approaches and ways to respond to the various behaviors of children, differentiating between normal behaviors that might seem like misbehavior, yet giving parents ways to respond to irritating or upsetting behaviors in calm, respectful but clear ways themselves. It explains the difference between punishment and authoritative, clear responses….and gives many examples of how to communicate with young children and set clear limits and choices to maintain a calm, respectful home atmosphere. I think it’s an invaluable source of information for all parents of young children.

Unique look on parenting young children

Okay so this book seems very old fashion because it was written a while ago. However, it offers unique and simple ways to look at parenting differently. I’m actually an anti-parenting book person (unless there is some type of specific issue in the home going on) because I believe each family is so unique with parent-child relationships. However, this book is great and as a general look at parenting it offers some great points.

Best book for young children

The concepts in this book are the ones that I have seen work across the board. The truth is, children do what they do for reasons that are important to them. It isn’t about understanding every little thing, but it is about finding out what children need and rewarding positive behaviors in order to continue to create win-win situations. Highly recommended.

When we start having children we have no real idea of what to do – how to rear children. I personally found this book to be a life saver; both for me and my children.

This is an excellent book for parents of very young children! Would definitely recommend to soon-to-be parents as well as those with children. I have three kids younger than 4 and this book helped put things into perspective again! It’s only 7 chapters and vey easy to read.
