Descriptions du produit

Every parent, caregiver - and toddler - knows the misery that comes with meltdowns and temper tantrums. Through rhythmic text and warm illustrations, this gentle, reassuring book offers toddlers simple tools to release strong feelings, express them, and calm themselves down. Children learn to use their calm-down place - a quiet space where they can cry, ask for a hug, sing to themselves, be rocked in a grown-up's arms, talk about feelings, and breathe: 'One, two, three...I'm calm as can be. I'm taking care of me.' After a break, toddlers will feel like new - and adults will, too. It features a dynamic, award-winning author/illustrator team of the best-selling "Best Behavior[trademark]" series. An unique and fresh series look and design complements gentle and reassuring text. The books engage toddlers in facing daily routines and transitions with confidence. Tips for parents and caregivers are included at the end of each book. It is ideal for both home and childcare settings.

simple, effective, differentiates nap from resting 8 janvier 2012
Par Cheryl Hill - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
I love these books!
We've taken a cue from the books and differentiated nap time, bed time, and "calm down time". My son still naps in the morning, but has given up his afternoon sleep. However, he still gets tired and needs to rest in the afternoons. The "calm down time" book has helped demonstrate what it means, to have alone time and rest (without having it be punishment or "time out".

Somehow, my 2 year old takes the lessons less personally when we read about it in the books. We have the sharing, calm down time, hands are not for hitting and nap time. The books are simply stated so that a 2 year old can understand. They are vague enough that they apply to most children and situations. A bonus, the colors and patterns are vintage/nostalgic and fun to look at.

When I tell him it's calm down time, he gets very defensive and argumentative. So, my strategy has changed. Now, we sit down to read this book. The mommy in the book tells the boy calm down time. My son can see how the little boy in the book responds and sits or plays nicely. I can then leave him on the floor of his room to play solo for a bit. It may only last 5 minutes, but it's a positive start! I like the idea of teaching him to recognize when he needs to take a break and how to handle that. "1, 2, 3, taking care of me." (Mommies can learn from this lesson, too:)

Very Calming, for Him at Least 1 février 2013
Par S. Zinn - Publié sur
Format: Cartonné Achat vérifié
My son is particularly sensitive and gets worked up and overstimulated easily. I bought this book in an effort to teach self-calming techniques to a toddler. The words and pictures are clear and simple - ideal for toddler comprehension - and the key calming phrase is easy. He loves this book and has me read it to him several times during Book Time before bed. He even recites the calming phrase with me: "1-2-3, I'm taking care of me," and it does seem to calm and relax him. (Now let's see if it works in the thick of the battle.)

It loses a star because I really can't figure out what they were doing in terms of rhyme scheme or rhythm. Your average toddler-targeted book has a rhyme scheme or at least a sing-songy rhythm. This book does too, but only in fits and starts. The opening two pages rhyme just fine. The third and fourth pages rhyme, but with a longer phrasing. I *think* the fifth/sixth pages are *supposed to* rhyme, but it's a stretch. Eventually you get down into the part about the child finding a calm down space and the rhyming/rhythm is completely haphazard - sometimes it's there, sometimes it's not. This may seem like a silly thing to yank a star over, but it makes reading aloud a bit stilted, jerky, and more complicated than it needs to be.

Regardless of my hang-ups over rhythm, I would definitely recommend this book to anyone with a young child with temper management difficulties (heh - I guess that means everyone). It's accessible to them and makes sense to them, teaches them a real-life calming technique, and best of all, it actually does calm them down.

A good choice for parents to use! 28 avril 2011
Par I'm a full-time mummy - Publié sur

I love the cute cover! And each of the pages are solid and has a glossy feel, plus the illustrations are just too awesome and creative! The size of the book is just nice, not too big, not too small.

If you look closely, the characters and objects illustrated are not only hand drawn, they are also actual textures used to replace the clothings, toys, even the wallpapers in the book are from the actual thing! It's very cute and has that added touch!

With this book, I'm trying to teach Ben that yes, there are times we get sad, mad and angry and that we want to vent out the frustrations, but we can also take steps to calm ourselves down. And there are easy, positive and healthy choices we can take to calm down such as taking a deep breath, relaxing and taking a break in a quiet place, or even just a nice little hug!

In my opinion, the Toddler Tools series are a good choice for parents to use with their children because of the positive message they brings! No wonder this book is the "Gold Mom's Choice Award® Winner"!

If you have a toddler or work with them, buy this book! 19 juin 2011
Par A. Chaplin - Publié sur

I love this book! I have read it to my 2 year old many times, both when we were just reading for fun, and at times when he needs to calm down. He is slowly learning what it means to take a deep breath. I brought it with us on a trip to visit 3 of sisters and their families. So combined we had a 3yr old, 2 yr old, 19mo old, 1yr old and a 4 month old! During one of the inevitable moments when we had a huge all kid melt down, I pulled out this book and we all read it. It was amazing! It helped all of the kids (AND parents) calm down. One of my siters works with foster care kids, and she was as in love with this book as the rest of us. I like the handfull of other books in this series that I have, but this one is a standout.

Has been helping pacify tantrums! 19 août 2014
Par bananabelle - Publié sur
Format: Cartonné Achat vérifié
I have an 18 month in the heart of tantrum country. He's not the type of kid you can just leave to work out his tantrum because he spirals out of control and starts hurting himself. I bought this book in a moment of desperation, as we had read and constantly discuss "Hands are Not for Hitting" and that phrase helps him remember. I turned the chorus of the book (for lack of a better phrase), "1-2-3, I'm taking care of me," into a little song. When the kiddo starts ramping up, I start singing. Then we get the book out and read it. It has helped! The other night, after I started singing it, he actually went over and got the book himself without me asking, which felt like a major parenting win. I really hope this sticks.
