From what toddlers understand to how to get them to talk to you and from managing defiance to keeping them happy and healthy, everything you need to survive the Terrible Twos is right here. Find out how much your toddler's behavior will predict how he will act as a teenager. Teach him to make good decisions, take on responsibility and cope with new siblings and friends. Conquer sharing, hair pulling and tantrums at the mall. Along the way, learn to laugh at the amazing things this little person does right before your eyes.
