ABOUT THE BOOK
Toddlerhood—the phase when nobody’s on time, everything’s a mess, and an eager one- or two-year-old will insist, “ I can do it.”
If parents can’t get out the door because their toddler won’t budge until he puts on his own shoes, they might be in one of the best phases of their child’s life.
In this short volume, Kristen Ivy and Reggie Joiner simplify what parents need to know so they can make the most of the present realities, the distinctive opportunities, and the future implications of the next 104 weeks.
One and Two is part of The Phase Project, a synthesis of real-life parent experiences, academic research, and gatherings of leaders and educational experts from across the ministry and child development spectrum.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“We all know where we want to end up in our parenting, but how to get there can seem like an unsolved mystery. Through the It’s Just a Phase series, Reggie Joiner and Kristen Ivy team up to help us out. The result is a resource that guides us through the different seasons of raising children, and provides a road map to parenting in such a way that we finish up with very few regrets.”
—Sandra Stanley, foster care advocate, blogger, wife of Andy Stanley, mother of three
“Not only is the It’s Just a Phase series of books the most creative and well-thought-out guide to parenting I have ever encountered, these books are ESSENTIAL to my daily parenting. With a 13-year-old, 11-year-old, and 9-year-old at home, I am swimming in their wake of daily drama and delicacy. These books are a reminder to enjoy every second. Because it’s just a phase.”
—Carlos Whittaker, author, speaker, father of three
