Toddler DefianceOn Guiding Small Children Through Development and RebellionMalin Bergström, Clara Linnros , illustrated by Lotta Sjöberg
The years of toddler defiance make up a difficult but crucial phase of a small child’s life. It is a few intense years, from when children first learn to say ‘no’ until they are about four years old. Alongside learning to walk and talk, they also start to express their will and wants. Sometimes it feels like all they want to do is fight and defy you.
In Toddler Defiance child psychologists Malin Bergström and Clara Linnros explain how you can help children through these tough years with clear and responsive parenting. It is about guiding your child through their unique experiences on a day-to-day basis rather than applying rules. It is not about arguing with children, but about helping them to discover who they are, what they want, and how to interact.
