Many parents wonder how the sweet, chubby baby which gurgles happily at them for the first twelve months changes so suddenly into a bellowing, tantrum prone, heel drumming, carpet biting toddler. What's gone wrong? Whose fault is it? What can be done about it?

Renowned paediatrician Dr Christopher Green's classic, internationally bestselling parenting guide Toddler Taming has been revised and updated to answer these questions and others like them in a way that parents of the twenty-first century will instantly grasp.

He quickly calms fear of 'abnormal' bad behaviour, points out the inevitable strains of bringing up children and offers invaluable practical advice on all fronts from sleep problems and tantrums, eating habits to potty training, sibling rivalry to discipline, and managing screen-time to surviving as a single parent.

All done in a down-to-earth, practical and yet humorous way, this book is a must-have for anyone raising children.
