A “recommended reading” book by the Center for Parenting Education.

“There’s no question Joyful Toddlers & Preschoolers is one of the very best books on parenting kids who aren’t babies anymore but haven’t yet hit the tween years.”

-Golden Gate Mothers Group Magazine

Find out what children need in order to live a life that’s fulfilling, learn to handle your own annoyance, and explore how to incorporate your own passions into your life with young children.

Many parenting books lead the reader to think: “I know all this already” or, “The author obviously doesn’t know MY child.” Not this book. It is a new and exciting approach to early childhood, and you will recognize yourself and your child in every page.

Lawrence J. Cohen, PhD, Playful Parenting and The Opposite of Worry.

Research-based and highly readable, this book will change the way you approach creating a life with toddlers and preschoolers.

Rare and precious!  A sure companion as you build a secure base from which your child can launch out into the world with confidence and resilience. Most of all, it will likely leave you feeling, “Yes, I can do this.”

Kim John Payne, Simplicity Parenting and The Soul of Discipline.

Here I am, sharing a little bit about my book:

More Accolades for Joyful Toddler & Preschoolers:

In clear, reassuring prose, Faith Collins reminds us that toddlers are built to learn, and are busy learning even when we aren’t busy stimulating them. When parents give kids some space, the kids get to grow–and the parents get to make dinner. This book will help you and your toddler win/win!

I wish I had had this book when I was a young mother.
