This book. Let me just wipe a tear. This book is exactly what I needed when raising littles. And even now, there are so many great principles I can apply! I think this author did a masterful job pouring wisdom into each faucet & phase of child rearing!

I truly enjoyed the heart-felt wisdom, the practical guides, the sweet mantras, and the gentle nature of this book. I love that encourages parents that they can make big changes in small ways!

There were several quotes I really enjoyed:

“What you are not changing, you are choosing!”

“You are a better parent when you are taking care of yourself!”

“Boundaries with empathy & Limits with love!”

I think the greatest part of this book is the “CALLLM” acronym! It really helps parents feel less threatened & intimidated by outbursts! Thank you to this author for such a sweet book!

Absolutely loved this book. As a first time mom I know that I'll be going back to this book for advice in the future. It also gave me a good insight to some of the stuff I'll need to deal with when my child becomes a toddler. Loved the reminder that you are the best parent when you love and care for yourself.

I absolutely loved this book! This was a quick read, but I loved reading the lists and common advice. Although my kids are a bit older and no longer are toddlers, it was nice to read and relate to the things in the book. The illustrations were wonderful and paired well with the words. I loved the humor and quotes.

This is a super helpful book meant to make sure parents help model the best behaviors for their kids. Compassion for self and others, for example, dot each section. The author specifically offers practical applications for activities before interacting with toddlers.

It doesn't cover everything (how could anything), but I'll be picking up a copy when it releases. I'm currently recovering and reworking my brain from PPD last summer. For parents like me, this book will be a gift.

Parents will find a variety of activities, exercises, personal stories, and recipes. All in succinct format. I didn't know what to expect but definitely blown away.

Thanks to Netgalley, the publisher, and author for access. Reviewed for an honest opinion.
