In less than a week, the NYC Dads Group will be welcoming Dr. Harvey Karp, author of the bestselling books/DVDs, The Happiest Baby on the Block and The Happiest Toddler on the Block. This guy is a legend! I have utilized his “shush” method to soothe my little guy when he was only a few weeks old. Recently, I watched to the “Toddler” DVD for tips on temper tantrums. Matt S. & his wife have relied on Dr. Karp’s advice as they moved through the most difficult stages of babyhood and toddlerhood with their two kids, and this workshop is a must for every parent with babies, toddlers, and pre-schoolers. Based on Matt’s passion and sound networking skills, we owe him big time for making this event come together on behalf of the NYC Dads Group!
