Supporting Children Through Toddlerhood

In this episode I'm speaking with Faith Collins, author of "Joyful Toddlers and Preschoolers: Create a Life That You and Your Child Both Love", all about life with toddlers, the ups and downs, and how to work through the challenges. Faith is the daughter of Rahima Baldwin Dancy author of "You Are Your Child's First Teacher", and the guest I spoke with in the first episode of this sixth season. Faith was a wonderful guest, has a great sense of humor, and I love the candor she brought to our conversation.

Also, Faith's mother Rahima's book is "Your Are Your Child's First Teacher", which I've mentioned a few times as a great resource especially for the baby phase.
