Parents, when your child enters the toddler stage, brace yourself for the “first adolescence!” Just like a teenager desires increasing independence, your toddler will too. On today’s classic edition of Family Talk, Dr. James Dobson interviews a panel of doctors who insist that Mom and Dad lovingly let their toddler know that they are in charge. Listen to a valuable dose of encouragement and insight, and learn how to win the battle over bedtime and mealtime, the best toys for any age range, and the optimum number of hours of sleep a toddler needs per day.
