Having a toddler is a lot of fun, but it can also be frustrating at times because communicating with them is pretty hard. Those of you reading this that have toddlers will know exactly how challenging it is to raise one. Recently we’ve heard good things from people who have purchased an audio book called Talking to Toddlers by Chris Thompson, after consuming the book they report that they’ve had a much easier time talking with their little one. Many parents find that the biggest problem with their children is the communication gap, but this audio book has helped many people to start really connecting with their kids.
Talking to Toddlers Overview
I’m going to start by telling you a bit about the program’s creator, Chris Thompson, who is a registered NLP (neuro linguistic practitioner) and a writer. He’s worked extensively in developing language strategies for parents, and he poured his knowledge into this audio book. As Thompson points out, the communication barrier is what causes toddlers to throw tantrums, and that’s understandable since children at this stage don’t really understand logic.
People who have got hold of his audio book, have discovered that it is full of tips and tricks for communicating with your toddler. In the program, Chris explains step by step how to interact with your toddler and provides techniques to keep them from throwing a tantrum.
What makes this program different is it doesn’t make your child think you’re in control, as that will just make the situation worse. Instead, what Chris’ program does is show you how to make your toddler think that he or she is control when in truth, it’s actually you who’s in control.
Because Chris is an expert in neuro-linguistic programming, he knows exactly how to talk to toddlers, and he does this by explaining to you various body and verbal language techniques, many of which I have never heard anywhere on the web. Because the program comes in mp3 format, you can listen to it anytime you want, which I find very convenient. Rather than reading a lot of text, I like the fact that I can listen to it anytime I want.
Here’s what you can expect from the lessons in the book. The first lesson is an introduction covering key concepts, while lesson 2 tackles double blinds and presuppositions. Lesson 3 teaches you how to get what you want without saying no to your toddler, and lesson 4 goes into detail concerning yes/no compliance sets.
Lesson 5 meanwhile, is about consistency and lesson 6 is reciprocity, and lesson 7 is all about picking your battles. Lesson 8 is more advanced and covers reframing while the ninth is all about anchoring and state management. Lesson 10 will teach you the quotes and embedded comments technique while lesson 11 is about dealing with physical pain. The final lesson, lesson 12, covers threats and punishments.
While the lessons are comprehensive, most people report that it doesn’t take them more than a couple of weeks to complete them. Each lesson takes less than 25 minutes to complete so if you study one a day you’ll be done in less than two weeks. There are twelve lessons and if you choose the audio version, 12 audio tracks. I prefer the audio version, but either one should be easy to figure out and put to use.
What Customers are Saying about Talking to Toddlers
Many people have had success with this product, and I’ve read several reviews online and testimonials pointing out the benefits of the product. Pinky McKay, who wrote Sleeping Like a Baby and Toddler Tactics, called the audio book “one of a kind” and says the examples make this guide very easy to follow.
Another reviewer, Shawn of Minneapolis, said Chris’ audio book was just unique and that he has integrated it into the rearing up of his child. The same sentiment was echoed by Tracy who said in her review that the guide is almost unbelievably effective in establishing communications with a toddler. Finally, I want to mention what Linda of Oregon said, and it’s that Chris showed her how easy it is to make toddlers follow parents without throwing fits.
A Few Reminders When Using the Product
Judging from the reviews and feedback available online, I can say without hesitation that this program does work and will make your relationship with your child more enjoyable. I hasten to add though, that this isn’t a quick fix because you still need to follow the instructions step by step.
What I’m saying is that for Chris’ program to work, you need to follow the guide and not take any shortcuts. But if you follow them all the way through, you’ll be able to establish a better relationship with your son or daughter. If you follow the advice given here, you’ll learn how to talk to a toddler the exact way I learned.
You can get the program from the official website, and when you order the PDF edition you will be upgraded automatically to the mp3 version for just $37. Once you’ve completed the transaction, you’ll gain access to the program immediately. The program doesn’t just work on desktop computers but also mobile devices so you can carry the files with you anywhere.
Many people prefer the online version since it is very convenient, but if you would rather have CDs, you can order those as well from the official website. I want to add that there’s a written version of the lessons so if you prefer to read it’s no problem since it’s included with the order. And if for some reason your computer crashes and you lose your downloaded copies, you can go back to the official website, get a link and download it again, at no added cost. This is a very convenient feature as it means you don’t have to worry about creating a backup.
Should You Buy It?
People who have used the program report excellent results, and the importance of having a good relationship with your child where you are able to easily communicate with them in a caring yet strong way cannot be underestimated.
Chris provides very clear instructions and people are able to complete the lessons quickly. If you’re having trouble communicating with your toddler (who doesn’t?) I strongly recommend that you try this program. You won’t be disappointed.
