Two-year-olds don’t read novels! Lots of parent/child conflict is caused not so much by kids misbehaving as by parents not knowing exactly when they should expect what from their children. In other words, we parents can get impatient, sometimes expecting too much too soon (sitting still at dinnertime, listening) or other times seeing certain normal behavior (sibling rivalry, tantrums) as pathological. Parents may see children as uncooperative, stubborn, or oppositional when in reality kids are just acting their age.

In the 1-2-3 Magic When Parents Expect Too Much Quick Reference Guide you will learn:

  • What percentage of 4-year-olds lie
  • The age at which most children stop taking naps
  • How long a 3-year-old (who is full) can sit still at the dinner table
  • How many times 3-7-year-olds fight per hour
  • The surprisingly high percentage of preschoolers who are picky eaters
  • The percentage of 3-year-olds who have daily tantrums.

Your kids are little. Both their bodies and their brains are still growing. So, it’s important to be realistic and not set yourself and your kids up for conflict. The When Parents Expect Too Much: The Dirty Dozen Quick Reference Guide describes the 12 mistaken parental hopes that cause the most trouble. You’ll want to memorize these developmental milestones so you can be fair to your kids — and to yourself!
