The Webster Dictionary - It's nice and big has some heft so when you swing it at them it makes an impression on them. LOL

Sorry I don't have any books, just couldn't resist it. I am in waist deep in teen land right now, and I feel like I am drowning some days, but every once in a while I get a glimmer of the decent person they are going to be. It keeps me sane.

I think any book on dealing with how to parent a toddler is probably spot on...

Some of the issues (like exerting independence) and how to respond to temper tantrums, how to distract with "choices" and consequences for poor choices... enough sleep and proper nutrition. Yep! Get the Dr. Sears difficult toddler book.
