Abstract
This is a book that offers a unique approach to the tantrums, melt-downs and overriding challenges that often accompany the demanding years from one to four. Viewing toddlers as primitive thinkers akin to prehistoric man, Karp divides his patients into developmental groups: the "Charming Chimp-Child" (12 to 18 months), the "Knee-High Neanderthal" (18 to 24 months), the "Clever Cave-Kid" (24 to 36 months) and the "Versatile Villager" (36 to 48 months). The book suggests that to deal effectively with the undeveloped brains of toddlers, one must understand "Toddler-ese," a method of talking to youngsters that employs short phrases, repetition, a dramatic tone of voice and the use of body language.
