Toddlers are Cavemen?

Just heard about a book by a doctor that basically says toddlers are cavemen -- they grunt, bite, spit... Sounds just like ds. Just wonder if anyone has read this book or attended the pediatrician's workshops. Think it's something like the happiest toddler in the world...

Bought the book. Haven't gotten thru the first chapter yet. Basically I THINK you let the child know you understand them by speaking their language and then distract them. I'll keep you posted. My little caveman was a cave lunatic this weekend.

ahhh, yes, distraction is the best tool I ever learned. I averted many temper tantrums that way, however I still dealt with at least a million tantrums. Yes, cavemen sound pretty dead-on.
