From bed-wetting and eating to bath time and siblings, this guide helps parents foster rewarding relationships with their preschoolers through practical, creative solutions to sticky everyday situations. Imaginative and innovative approaches to 40 common challenges not only solve the immediate problems but also enhance the parent-child relationship, while 15 common issues that parents find themselves facing, such as finances, isolation, job demands, guilt, sleep deprivation, boredom, and unsolicited advice, are tackled with simple yet effective solutions. Incorporating elements of the Search Institute's 40 Developmental Assets® for Young Children, parents learn how to avoid the pressures of "going it alone" by building a web of support with their family, friends, and community that promotes the physical, social, and emotional well-being of both child and parent.
