"Talking to Toddlers" by Chris Thompson - REVIEW
One minute they're a babe in arms and the next thing they're a mini-tyrant who, if you're not careful, will try to control you.
We've all seen it - in real life and on the TV. The terrible twos. Actually it's quite amazing just how dominant those tiny children can be, given the chance.
Chris Thompson, the 'Toddler Whisperer' can help. His 'Talking to Toddlers' gives tips and advice on how to deal with the terrible twos and beyond, based on 'unique language strategies for parents.'
He claims to know (or at least understand...) the real reason your kids are not well behaved. The course consists of alternative strategies to constantly saying 'NO!', plus how to establish the 'emotional bridge' with your child that must exist before you can change behavior.
Sounds exhausting, doesn't it? But it can't be worst than having your life run by a two year old.
Everything he says makes intuitive sense. He uses the example of the 'Boy Who Cried Wolf' story with regard to saying 'NO!' all the time. The kids don't hear it any more. He talks of creating a rapport; and how behavior is driven by emotion not logic (and small kids haven't really developed logic yet, so it's all emotion...).
And most importantly: language strategies.
Language is a powerful tool; it's how we talk to our kids that makes the difference, and you can view an example of how to use positive language (rather than negative) in a free video presentation on the Talking to Toddlers website.
Powerfully effective, according to endorsements on Chris Thompson's website.
'Your guide is almost like a magic bullet,' said one parent. 'The day I first tried presuppositions and double-binds, I saw a change in my relationship with my 2 year old son. Before, our relationship largely consisted of Dad the enforcer and toddler the oppressed; we've become closer, happier, and I really feel good about being a Dad now.'
One of the best things about Chris Thompson's website is that there is lots of free material available, including audio presentations of his techniques and links to articles. This gives potential customers a chance to learn about his methods and try them out for themselves.
He also emphasizes that his email address is a real one and he will reply to specific queries about your child. Try it! He also has a facebook page you can check out.
The Talking to Toddlers course is designed for children between 2 and 6 years. You can buy it as a download or have a CD shipped.
The methodology is based on the principles of NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) so you can investigate how this works further by doing some research. Fundamentally, this is a way of making language work for you by persuasion and influence. (Which has to be better than yelling and bribing, whatever you might think of NLP...). Try the free lesson and post your views on a parenting forum.
The methodology has many fans.
'Chris Thompson, author of this "Talking to Toddlers" audio course is absolutely phenomenal! I recommend this for all parents out there who are having trouble controlling their child. I have seen dramatic results in my son's behavior and their emotional state took a 360 degree turn around!'
'I put this link to Chris Thompson's site because he is sharing valuable information that helps parents avoid the stress and strain of not knowing how to react when a kid misbehaves,' says one mom and host of a parenting website.
'I wish I had known about Chris when I was raising my seven kids! It would have made it a lot easier!'
With the ability to try before you buy you can't really go wrong with this course.
As a parent of young children, Talking to Toddlers may be the only thing you shouldn't say 'NO!' too!
