Talking to Toddlers, Review and Giveaway!

I must say that I was a little skeptical about this at first. Talking to Toddlers is a program designed to help you deal with children of all ages (and even adults), without the fighting and resistance that you would normally encounter when trying to get your children to do something they don’t want to do (like go to bed on time!).

I wanted so hard to be able to talk to my children without all the fighting.  After I listened to the first few lessons and started trying the tricks on not only my children, but also on my husband, I can honestly say that it helped for us.  I still have some reservations about exactly how to do some of the steps, but after rewording and getting a little more practice, it is becoming easier.

I love the fact that it comes in a few different forms. I had the experience of reading it as well as an MP3 player version. I would take it on my phone and sit outside with the kids and listen to the lesson, then I would try it out on them. At the end of the day I had a copy of the written lesson and was able to go back over and read it again.

The concept Chris, the author, has is smart. I was taught new tricks and techniques to get my children to cooperate. Now it does not happen over night, in fact I have been at it for over week.  I will say that I do have some problems here and there, but I just kept rewording my phrases until my kids all began to cooperate.

Talking to Toddlers allows children to finally accept the word “no” without all the tantrums that would usually go on. It gives them a better attitude about things and allows them to look at the positive outcome.

The only thing that do not like about it was that he only addresses the concept of the tantrums. There was no way for the parent and the child to connect better in terms of respecting one another.  However, having a well behaved and socially acceptable child in public is a major plus to this, and I believe with time the respect will come.

Overall my impression of Talking to Toddlers is this: I believe that it is effective. If you are even skeptical about it, just listen to or read the first few lessons and just try them out.  Chris even offers a free lesson on his website just for you to try out!  I have four children and used the technique with all of them. You have to learn what works and what doesn’t and do not give up. It helped us, it could really help you too!

    Jesica, I appreciate your very fair review of my program. I think you nailed it when you say that the skills take some effort to build into your regular communication routine. It's just like learning to ride a bike, or for a toddler, learning to walk. Unless someone shows us better ways to communicate, we never learn them, and then we feel stuck. That's the problem I aimed to solve. Thanks so much for posting this review. Chris Thompson Author of "Talking to Toddlers: Dealing with the Terrible Twos and Beyond" Reply

    This is interesting to be sure! I'm always open to finding better ways of communicating with people. "Perception is reality" is one of the truest sayings I know, and if we can get kids to perceive things in a better way we're all better off :) THANKS! Reply

    Allowing children to accept the word ~NO~ without the tantrums that usually go on would be wonderful. It says it gives them a better attitude about things and allows them to look at the positive outcome. Wonderful! Thank you for the chance. :) Reply

    I will try anything to avoid confrontation, tantrums, elevated voice levels. So glad that this comes in different formats for those of us who want to multi-task (or at least try). Reply

    I think it would help my daughter to understand better certain words we tell her. You can't go wrong either way for trying and she knows words like no but she needs better understanding. This could realy help!!! Reply

    My daughter is 1 1/2 and we are just starting to discipline her, so we can use any help we can get. Reply
