I am in the sphere of a 2,5 year old boy. He is very clever in my opinion, but as a 2 year old his emotions are all over the place which I understand. He love to explore and play and can experience so many forms of joy and heartache in a short period. Many adults tend to use manipulation " be good or no gifts for Christmas" - his reaction is so extreme and heartfelt, that I can see it really affects him emotionally. I am of the opinion if an adult can remain calm and just repeatedly talk it does hit home and he can understand, especially if he has no fear I his mind and is not tired. This can be a terrible combination for him. Some children are more sensitive? Anyway, I am looking for a list of emotional abuse topics..the do's and don't guide, so to speak. Authoritative guide. Please are you able to advise me on the name of a book or send me a list please.
