Bracingly candid, sweetly indignant, and writing with an unchecked sense of entitlement, the Internet s wildly popular Honest Todd...ler delivers a guide to the parenting techniques he deems acceptable (keep the cake coming and the apple juice undiluted). The toddler stage can be a rude awakening for parents, whose sweet infants morph, seemingly overnight, into tyrants ready to turn simple errands into hellish and humiliating experiences. Trying to convince your defiant darling to do something as simple as put on her shoes can feel like going to war. It s not all blood, sweat, and tears, though. Toddlers can be charming little creatures, with their unfettered enthusiasm, wide grins, and ready hugs. In fact, what makes toddlers so fascinating is their unique blend of cute and demonic behavior. A toddler will take your hand and say "I love you," then slap you in the face. Now, The Honest Toddler provides an indispensable guide to parenting that places the toddler s happiness front and center. Who better to instruct parents on the needs of toddlers than a toddler himself? In a voice that is at once inimitable and universal, The Honest Toddler turns his sharp eye to a wide range of subjects, including play date etiquette, meal preparation, healthy sleep habits, and the pernicious influence of self-appointed experts and so-called doctors. The result is a parenting guide like no other, one that will have moms and dads laughing through tears as they recognize their own child in the ongoing shenanigans of one bravely honest toddler.
