Publisher's Summary

We've all been there or done it - a child with watery eyes, begging for something they really want but can't have now. And when a parent says "no" - the drama starts.

Most of the time, parents have no idea what to do. They either panic or get angry and always embarrassed.

There is no way to avoid it, or is there?

Children are the future. Each parent wants to give them everything they can and then some. And no parent likes to say "no".

But children can't always get everything that they desire. There is a risk to spoil them.

So, what do you do?

This audiobook has the answer:

  • It will teach you how to say "no" to your toddler
  • And show you how your child thinks
  • You will learn to deal with baby temper tantrum
  • And get practical toddler discipline tips

None of us like to hear "no" our request. But it happens, and an appropriate reaction can save your kid a lot of frustrations in the future.

Parenting is hard. But you can master it if you put in an effort. You will be pleased with the results.

This audiobook will help you boost your parenting skills, understand your child better, and deepen your bond.

Don't wait - act now by listening to this audiobook right now!

Excellent Parent Guide

This book was so helpful. I was able to apply the tactics immediately and saw results instantly. The strategies in this book lay out the framework for more respectful and better behaved children. I will be coming back to listen to this book again since parenting and children are constantly changing. What works one day won't necessarily work the next. This book provided examples and strategies needed for numerous scenarios. Highly recommend for parents struggling with behavior issues.

Must read!

This topic has been talked about for ages and is continually improving. Sage did a great job explaining the psychology of children to its core and helped you understand the importance of delayed gratification and much, much more. I highly recommend it.

You do NOT have to watch Paw Patrol again!

Sage Lively has put together a fantastic guide for the frustrated parent who may feel that they've totally lost control, and their kid is holding the reins. Kids need love and fun, but we serve them best (and prepare them for life) by teaching them delayed gratification, routine, discipline, respect for elders, and responsibility. This book does a great job of breaking down child psychology to an everyday level, spiced up with anecdotes, heart, and a lot of humor. I loved it. Buy it today, and buy a second copy for a friend!

Great for parents

As a mom, I am aware how much responsibility it entails to raise a child. It was challenging for me raising my boy and I wish I had some of the tips I find here. I would get this audiobook for my future daughter-in-law as the guides here are very useful and practical on how to say no without having a child throw tantrums. We all desire well behaved, kind children and it's our job to help them from infancy. Great listen.

Highly recommended

This book has come at the right moment in my life. I was at the point where I did not know what to do with my daughter. I knew I was not doing right, but I did not know what to do about her behavior. It is incredible how I can change her temperament. The most exciting part was the discipline tips. Thank you for this guide!!

My 3 boys like all children love to have me purchase toys and cool things. I don't mind an occasional purchase but certainly not everytime I go into a store. This book has great ideas and usable techniques for helping parents manage this any many scenarios like this where we as parents have to say no for safety, buying things, ect. Great book to have in my parenting arsenal.

Don’t say no to saying no!

Saying no to kids can be tough, I know my son knows exactly what to do to get me to just agree! It’s a really hard balance to strike as saying no often results in crying and arguments and an uncomfortable situation that let's face it we’d rather not deal with! This audiobook really highlights how to minimize the chance of a toddler tantrum and how to quickly deal with it if it happens. Loads of good information, I really enjoyed it.

great explanations

Being a new parent is a challenge there is no doubt about that. Understanding your kids might come easily to some but it can also be a challenge, especially if your little ones can sometimes be a challenge. Knowing their manipulating ways and what signs to watch out for is a great help. This book by Sage Lively was a really great listen, jam packed with information and tips to help with the inevitable tantrums which they sometimes throw! Loved it, thank you
