Présentation de l'éditeur

Are you the confused parent of a toddler?

Are you constantly disappointing the 2T in your life?

Are you tired, stressed out, and looking for relief?

I can’t help you with that last one, but if you want to become an A+ servant to your small child, this book is for you. Who better to teach you about toddlers than another toddler? In this book you’ll learn:

• How time-outs make you look like a fool

• Why potty training is not only unnecessary but unrealistic for children under eighteen

• Why toddler beds are OUT and letting your child sleep on the diagonal in your bed is IN

• The best way to apologize to your toddler for all of those Pinterest casseroles

• That when you love someone, you accept them as they are, pants or no pants

The hard-hitting knowledge in The Honest Toddler will save you thousands of dollars in unnecessary whole grains and toothbrushes.

Happy reading. You’re doing the right thing. For once.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Kept me laughing! 7 mai 2013
Par Monika - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I've followed the Honest Toddler Facebook page for several months and always get a kick out of the status updates and posts. Only 10 pages into reading an advance copy of The Honest Toddler book and I was already cracking up. I'm sure my husband got sick of me sharing passage after passage with him - though he laughed every time!

Sleep: Weaning Yourself Off of It was probably my favorite section. I also loved the book, movie, music, and fairy tale reviews. So glad I'm not alone in my feelings toward the television series Caillou! I did experience a few lulls while reading the book - probably bound to happen with 256 pages of the same shtick - but they didn't last long. The Honest Toddler moves from topic to topic quickly, delivering a multitude of blunt opinions with sarcastic, sassy wit.

Yet even among the hilarity, I have to say, I had an "ouch" moment or two while reading this book. These moments gave me pause as I realized how some of the things I do might be coming across to my daughter. The Honest Toddler may be a tongue-in-cheek type of "parenting book," but I appreciated finding bits of wisdom all while laughing wholeheartedly.

Lots of parenting humor books have an attitude or subtext that is off-putting. My husband is a lazy jerk; my wife is a dope; oh, poor me; I'm a hero; I'm a victim; and so on. Or, there are long stories about diapers or whatever that assume no one else has ever been a parent. That's not what is going on here at all. This is all about recognizing what your toddler does/did/will do from the skewed vantage point of an articulate and witty toddler.

Our author explains the actions and behavior of a toddler through a narrator who has the arch sensibility of a weary, deadpan, martini swilling, wit. If you could cross a toddler with Oscar Wilde, Noel Coward, Christopher Hitchens and P. G. Wodehouse, you would get something like this. And, I don't mean that as exaggerated praise - I mean that as a useful comparison. Much of the humor is aphoristic, with just a line or two crystallizing a humorous insight. Or, it presents a contrarian view of parent/child relations that sneaks up on you and is the funnier for it. Or, a certain world weariness creeps in as this exhausted toddler tries to help you understand toddlerdom even though he has no faith in your adult parenting intelligence, skills or aptitude.

There is a very generous sample on this page, and it will give you a good idea of what the entire book is like. Because the book is written in short, punchy mini-chapters, and because it is exclusively in the honest toddler's voice, it is more like a collection of columns or blog entries. That makes it ideal for a bit of brief light reading. I don't know if you could sit and read it like a novel. But that said, sometimes a light break is just what you want or need.

So, rewarding, amusing and virtually guaranteed to raise a smile. Please note that I found this book while browsing Amazon Kindle samples. I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Blog/Facebook updates are better 11 mai 2013
Par Renee Kent - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I love the HT Facebook updates. The little snippets make me giggle and the longer blogs are amusing when they come out occasionally. The book however is 18 chapters of the repeating theme of 'It's all about me' and "Don't make a big deal", which is repeated several times. I think in this large a chunk it loses some of its special appeal and humor. I am hoping it didn't ruin me on the blog/updates but I might be over it now. This book is only ok. Maybe it would be funnier as a gift to toddler parents who are NOT yet familiar with the online persona.

Oh. My. Gosh.

Your next read should be The Honest Toddler: A Child's Guide to Parenting written under the supervision of Bunmmi Laditan. It's newly released today and you should run, not walk, to the nearest bookstore (or to your computer and Amazon.com) and purchase a copy for yourself. This book is the end all, be all authority of raising toddlers. Straight from the horse's toddler's mouth!

If you're the parent of a toddler (or soon to be toddler), you need this book -- it will become your favorite "raising toddler" manual -- you'll need no other.

If you're the grandparent of a toddler, you'll appreciate the total truth of its pages. What's that old saying? Toddlers and grandmas get along so fabulously because they share a common enemy . . . !

If you're thinking about having children -- it will be a good way to prepare yourself for the selfless, all-consuming job of being a parent to a toddler.

Truly, this was the funniest read I've enjoyed in a long time. In fact, my husband banned me from reading it in bed at night -- because I'd wake him up from laughing out loud. I'd get to giggling over some truth revealed:

"There's even more good news. Selective acknowledgement has a partner skill known as hyperawareness. I can hear someone open a bag of chips through seven solid brick walls in the middle of a thunderstorm while sleeping. Please hold your applause."

or

"Everybody lies. Toddlers just don't apologize for it. When you think about it, a lie is the truth with a funny hat on. The next time your toddler lies to your face, giggle and smile. Share a few hugs and know that you probably just asked the wrong question. The number one reason toddlers spin reality is to avoid trouble. When you ask questions like, "Laura, did you put your poo in the fireplace?," what do you expect to happen? We both know Laura did it and that you've already judged her for it. What does she have to lose by fabricating a tall tale?"

Is that not gold?! I'd start giggling and that would turn into full on laughter and the bed would shake and hubby would get a little put out. But seriously, this is a terrific read and totally truthful (from your toddler's point of view). As the Neesey (aka grandma) of two toddlers, it was priceless to see my precious little grandtoddlers thoughts and emotions so perfectly depicted. Why do parents make it so tough on everyone?

Great read -- I'd give it two thumbs up, five stars, and ten bags of popcorn (if it were a movie). And after you've sat down with a big cup of red drink, fruit rollups, goldfish and read the book, then go subscribe to the blog (which started the sensation) and follow Honest Toddler on Facebook and Twitter, too! In fact -- go right now to the blog and read Footprints in the Sand. You'll understand. If I haven't convinced you to read the book, this post sure will!

And remember: "The truth will set you free." But so will taking off your pants.

:)

Laditan's tongue-in-cheek parenting guide had everyone in my house laughing - well, everyone except my toddler, who would probably agree with most of HT's suggestions. Seriously, I had to hide in the bathroom with my copy because my pre-teens kept stealing it from me to giggle over it themselves, so buy a lot of copies for everyone you know - you will need them.

While the writing is hilarious, it's also a great reminder of how difficult the adult world is for toddlers (and parents) to navigate. I find myself appreciating my child's view of things in a different and valuable way. Can't wait for the next book.
