Trust Me, I’m A Toddler – It’s here!

Trust Me, I’m a Toddler is a guide to Toddler, Natural Parentinganyone who wants to parent gently and peacefully through the toddler stage, creating lasting respect and acceptance within their families. It provides practical, loving and respectful solutions to the issues that parents may face during the toddler stage.

It is a 165 page guide covering subjects from biting and sharing, to tantrums and separation anxiety. It will help parents to move away from conventional parenting techniques which damage the parent child relationship, instead focusing on alternative ideas and tools that strengthen your bond with your child.

Often parents find that after the simplicity of attachment and continuum parenting in the first year, the issues that come up in the toddler stage can cause complications and uncertainty within their parenting.



Parents tend to take a number of different paths at this time, and this guide is intended to help you stay on track and continue to parent gently, respect your child’s needs, and help to make the journey through toddlerhood smooth and enjoyable rather than something to endure.

I firmly believe that our children are worthy of our trust and our respect, and that in giving this to our children unconditionally, they will prove us right. Evolution has not designed us as a species to be constantly in conflict with our children. The conventional rules of parenting have led us down the wrong path.

It’s time we got back to the simple and harmonious parenting nature intended.

Reading the book on a smart phone.

The pdf version will look fine on most mobile or tablet devices but the text won’t scale to fit the page nicely. For this reason the epub version should look better on your device. Although the download will work seamlessly on most portable devices I would recommend to download to your pc first if you encounter any issues.

If you are getting errors such as ‘download failed’ or ‘could not be completed’ then try the following: If you have an older version of software (for example anything lower than version 4.0 on android devices) then the native browser may be the issue. Try downloading an alternative such as firefox for mobile. Then try updating to the latest software available for your device. If it’s still not working download the file to your pc first and then transfer to your device.
