The Tantrum Sur­vival Guide is a much-need­ed how-to man­u­al for par­ents to bet­ter under­stand, cope with, and effec­tive­ly man­age the mad­den­ing melt­downs so com­mon in chil­dren between the ages of two and five. The book high­lights the impor­tance of the fam­i­ly unit, and of the pow­er­ful con­nec­tion that exists between par­ent and child, age-old val­ues in Judaism.The time we have with our kids is more and more lim­it­ed in these increas­ing­ly dis­con­nect­ed and fre­net­ic times, and, as a moth­er of two young boys, Her­sh­berg is in the trench­es along­side sim­i­lar­ly over­stretched par­ents. Her easy-to-fol­low pre­scrip­tive con­tent speaks direct­ly to care­givers look­ing to make that lim­it­ed time eas­i­er and more ful­fill­ing — think more let’s play!” than oy vey!” moments. Through prac­ti­cal advice (e.g., on get­ting out of the house in the morn­ing, tran­si­tion­ing while trav­el­ing, and even han­dling hol­i­day-time dis­rup­tions), and writ­ten in a can­did, humor­ous tone, The Tantrum Sur­vival Guide offers every­thing par­ents of tod­dlers need to get out of the day-to-day weeds and into a san­er and more enjoy­able par­ent­ing state.
