ABOUT THE BOOK
Toddlers hold the secrets to having more fun and living a fulfilling life. It’s true! In the first book to offer adults important lessons that can be gleaned from toddlers—as backed by science—a Harvard-trained physician helps us rediscover what we once knew.
Terrible twos, temper tantrums, and grocery store meltdowns are usually the first things that come to mind when people think of toddlers. But pediatric emergency medicine physician and researcher Dr. Hasan Merali has long thought toddlers are among the best people in our society and adults could do well to learn from them. They can teach us how to:
- Lose weight naturally
- Sleep better
- Build stronger friendships
- Improve teamwork
- Be more productive
- Have more fun, and
- Live a more fulfilling life
These extraordinary youngsters can be impulsive, but with this comes a remarkable ability to take risks and ask questions—two qualities that can help us enjoy life more. Toddlers act kindly toward strangers, are eager to work with others to solve problems, and demonstrate extraordinary dedication and perseverance. These are all traits that many of us aspire to have in order to improve both our personal and professional lives.
Dr. Merali includes many humorous examples from his experience as a pediatrician and father, but the core lessons are drawn from two decades worth of fascinating and surprising studies in child psychology and development. Merali connects these studies to research about adults to create the first book to offer adults research-backed lessons that can be learned from toddlers. Since toddlers aren’t able to formally communicate their most important lessons or impart their own innate wisdom, this book uses their actions as examples to guide your self-improvement journey.
