Columbus: Tovah Klein's "How Toddlers Thrive"

Event date: 
02/24/2015 - 7:00pm

Please join us on Tuesday, February 24th, at 7pm as Tovah Klein reads and discusses her book, How Toddlers Thrive.  

How Toddlers Thrive explains why the toddler years are different than any other period during childhood. Dr. Tovah Klein shows what is happening in children's brains and bodies at this age that makes their behavior so turbulent, and why your reaction to their behavior--the way you speak to, speak about, and act toward your toddler--holds the key to a successful tomorrow and a happier today. This provocative book will inspire you to be a better parent, and give you the tools to help you nurture your child's full potential. A smart and useful guide, this book cracks the preschooler code, revealing what you can do to help your toddler grow into a fulfilled child and adult--while helping you and your toddler live more happily together now, and every day.

A thought-leader in the area of guiding parents and children through the tumultuous early years when the foundation for self-esteem, identity, and self-confidence is laid, Tovah P. Klein, PhD, is a child development psychologist and researcher and the Director of the Barnard College Center for Toddler Development in Manhattan. She has appeared on CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNBC, and FOX Business, in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, Parents, Slate.com, Huffington Post, Psychology Today, and countless other publications as their go-to toddler expert. In addition, Dr. Klein was a developmental advisor for Sesame Street, and is on the advisory boards for Room to Grow, Rwanda Educational Assistance Project, Per Dev, Ubuntu Education Fund, and LearnNow.org. She consults nationally and internationally to programs for young children and parents. She is the mother of three boys and lives with her family in New York City.
