The holidays are a challenging balancing act – you want to spoil your tots but you’ve also got to set limits. They get so overexcited that it can be hard to keep them under control. I’ve heard that if you video your tots during tantrums and then show them the footage, they’ll be surprised by their own behavior and will actually want to correct their mistakes. The “How Do Dinosaurs” books set out to teach lessons in a similar way! For years, the series has been helping parents with their tots by using dino characters to show how NOT to act (the cute scenes will have kids laughing the whole way through!). The authors just released new books illustrating how the discipline and manners of the lovable dinosaurs go out the window during the holiday season, and how wonderful everything is when they get back on track. Like fables, these books are engaging entertainment for your tots that will positively influence their behavior without them even knowing it! There’s a Chanukah edition ($11.55) and one for Christmas ($11.05). While these would make great gifts, I’d get mine ahead of time to have a war plan ready for the battles to come! Available on Amazon.
