Many parents wonder how their sweet baby which gurgled happily at them for the first 12 months changes so suddenly into a bellowing, tantrum prone, carpet biting toddler. What went wrong? Whose fault is it? What can be done about it? With humour and common sense, Dr Green answers these questions and many others like them. He qualms fears of "abnormal" bad behaviour, points out the strains of bringing children up and offers practical advice on all fronts from discipline to sleeping problems, tantrums to toilet training.

Bestselling paediatrician and childcare author Dr Christopher Green, well known for his TV and newspaper work, has been hailed as the natural successor to Penelope Leach and Sheila Kitzinger, and his bestselling bible for the parents of toddlers has sold almost a million copies worldwide, over 320,000 in the UK alone. Belfast born and now living in Sydney, Australia, he offers a reassuringly bracing approach, and regularly updates the book to include the latest good advice (the next revised edition is due in July 2001). When your children get beyond the toddler stage you can also turn to Beyond Toddlerdom to help keep your 5-12-year-olds on the rails, and if necessary, Understanding A.D.H.D. is the definitive guide to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: both are available in paperback from Vermilion.
