Format: Paperback
We brought this book after spending a year and half battling our daughters reluctance to poo. Most doctors don't understand or prescibe things that are unsuitable and can do more harm than good. Such as lactulose and dulcosate which is not a nice tasting thing for a young child. This book was like a breath of fresh air as people do not understand that a child can withold their pooh but try and insist they are constipated. I would recommend this to annoyone who has this problem with their child as it not only helps the child but also you. It gives you suggestions on how you can deal with the problem and that you really are not alone. Dr Cohn is really helpful and actually answered emails that I sent him. My daughter is now on the way to actually having normally movements is all I can say is thank you for the help and making me feel that I am not the only parent and that I am not alone with the stress and heartache this gives

Format: Paperback
This book is like having a consultation with the Dr and is very helpful and informative. It gives practical information when dealing with stool withholding. It enables parents to realise that they are dealing with a very common problem among children which can sometimes feel as if they are the only family with the problem. It helps to bring it all out in the open and gives practical ways of solving the problem which are very do-able. As a health professional who deals with this problem on a daily basis, this is the book that is used for reference by our team.

Format: Paperback
After 18 months of being obssessed with poo, not pooing and accidents, school was looming and I was frustrated and tierd. Goodness only how my 4yr old feels he must be exhausted too.

Not knowing why we had these problems since the nappies went and not knowing which was was right (star charts, rewards,telling off, ignoring) this book has been a revelation. There was a whole chapter which could have been written for my child. Accidents and "I didn't feel it" are common daily vocab for us and to hear that it is so common amongst other children took a weight off me. It made me less concerned that medically there was something amiss or psycologically there was something wrong. My GP has said it was behavioural and I did doubt her but now I know she was correct all along.

I photocopied some of this book to give to my sons teacher on his 1st day, she found it very interesting and passed it on to all the TA's in his class to read.

If your child is witholding (regardless of age) or soiling GET THIS BOOK!!!

We have had great success a week after reading this book, we read The MR Poo story and if you haven't seen enough poo there is a chart of healthy to unhealthy stools. All very helpful in no nonsense language. It should be given out on the NHS.

As any other parent who has been in our position knows, when your child won't 'go', it really takes over your life!! This book, with its suggestions and story of Mr. Poo has really changed our lives. The way it is written is really user friendly! This is the only book you need if your child has poo problems! Thank you!

If anyone has a had problem with a child with constipation, witholding or soiling you will know the despair. This book is clear easy to follow, short and eminently practical.
Save your money buying toilet books and poo stories use the one in this personalised for your child. If you use the book and with your GP's help it will change your situation totally.

Format: Paperback
I'm so glad this book exists - because although a common problem it makes life really difficult and not many people seem to understand the situation. I feel the writer really has extensive experience and understanding. He writes sympathetically from both the parents' point of view and the child's. It is well written and funny in places; very human. And you also learn quite a lot of useful stuff about poo.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book if your child is withholding and constipated. My 2 year old has been constipated a few times which has caused her pain, she is now too afraid to poo. This book helped to understand poo and what its made of and how you can help this issue by ensuring that they have a healthy, high fibre diet. I needed this book badly, I was stressed daily and didn't know how to handle my child's situation. It's reassured me, Im now more empathetic to my daughters condition. It is written in a simple, easy to read way and from the child's perspective.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on 30 Oct 2009
Format: Paperback
This is a great book for parents of children who 'withhold' or 'wet'. The author writes in an easy informative style without over complicating the medical issues. It makes it much easier to understand whats behind the obvious issues your child has. There are practical suggestions for tackling this problem and reassurance that this is a common problem. Although there is advice on helping your child get through this it is also honest enought to say that it may take a long time to do this once the problem has been established. But because of the information in the book you will feel a lot more relaxed about it and get less stressed!
