Book Description

17 April 2008

Parents of boys will agree that getting sons to relinquish their nappies is often much harder than getting daughters to do the same. In Potty Training for Boys, Dr Caroline Fertleman and Simone Cave provide a clear step-by-step guide to redressing this balance and address all the concerns that can particularly affect boys.

This invaluable guide takes you through preparation; introducing and encouraging your son to use the potty; troubleshooting and much more.You'll also learn what kind of behaviour to expect, how to manage it, and even how to anticipate problems, solving them before they arise.

Potty Training for Boys ensures that parents, and their sons, pass this important milestone calmly, without worry or stress, and shows that it can even be fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars A warm, witty, sane and helpful book 27 April 2008
Format:Paperback
I wanted this book for the night training section and only wish I'd had it several months ago when I was training my son to stay dry during the day, which I found really quite testing. I am now completely serene about the nights and feel far better prepared for potty training my second son, though I have a year to wait for that. It's a delightful book - thoughtful and wise - with none of the prescriptive, slightly patronising tones of others I've read. If you, like me, are sick of others saying "it's a breeze" or "I don't know what all the fuss is about", resist the urge to poke them in the eye. Just get this book instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 15 April 2009
By Prime
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is excellent. It has really helped me with potty trainning my son. He has really responsed well to the relaxed approached. I had tried previously without help and got no where. The book really seems to get inside the heads of little boys and understand what they are thinking and how to respond. It has great advice went your son doesn't fit the mould and a guide to find out if your son truely is ready to begin. You can also fit potty trainning around your lifestyle and beginning in sessions. The amount of progress my son made in just a couple of days was amazing. A must read for parents of little boys.

5.0 out of 5 stars This approach is working brilliantly ! 25 Jan 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Taken from the back cover ...
*Clear, step-by-step guidance on what to do on the first day and how to manage the following days and weeks
*Tips on specific 'boy' problems, such as whether to teach him to stand or sit and how to aim
*What to do if he refuses to sit on his potty
*What to do if your son is a late starter of easily bored
*How to fit potty training into your schedule if you're a working mum and can't take time off

I had been drawn to the 'potty train in __ days' books but the results had left me with a three year old son, who was under the impression that the whole process had no interest for him and he seemed happy to spend the rest of his life in wet pants. I read the book a couple of times first and started working through the second chapter 'Early Preparation for Potty Training (from 12 months)'. I realised that the emence amount of pressure I had forced onto my strong willed son, had only surficed to make potty training a next to impossible task. On the second day of showing a relaxed attitude about all things potty, my son showed an interest in trying again. I was shocked with the speed he responded to feeling like I had put him in the driving seat.

My son is by no means 'there' yet but he is now atleast a willing participant. I would have saved many months of tantrums and upset if I had bought this book a year and a half ago. I would recomend this book to anyond who's son is not yet potty trained, regardless of their age. It has many insights into your sons world and lots of stratagies to assist you through this very important stage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Potty Book! 4 April 2009
By Timbo
Format:Paperback
Clearly written by people who obviously know their subject. We are about to embark on potty training our first son and feel really confident after reading this book. Also, it is very easy to "dip in and out" of. No elaborate words or confusing medical jargon, just down to earth and helpful. Highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seems to be almost magical 17 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Our soon to be three year old was very resistant to potty training. He would actively say that he didn't want to poo in the toilet and was uninterested in bribes, even when we offered chocolate! I had read lots of books and had already potty trained his older brother so I was reluctant to buy another book but I was getting desperate and the reviews seemed good.
The book arrived, I skimmed through the key chapters and to my surprise my little boy almost immediately decided that he would like to give potty training a go. I am too old to believe in magic so I can only think that something in the book made me give off a vibe that my son was more comfortable with. I think an important message was that I really needed to put him fully in the driving seat. Before I think I had given him the message without thinking about it that it was up to him when he started to wear big boy pants but that after that I would have control (I didn't say there was no going back but I probably thought it). The book encouraged me to let him make the decision from moment to moment whether he wanted to wear nappies or pants and in no time at all he was deciding that he wanted to wear pants all the time.
I am very glad I bought this book

5.0 out of 5 stars potty training for boys 22 Mar 2009
By ann
Format:Paperback
for busy mums this is a book that is not too wordy and is easy to read.
reasurring in it's simplicity it confirmed to me how i was going to tackle this milestone and not get distracted with the varying bits of advice well meaning friends and family had told me.
the author is not condesending as i have found in many child advice books and doesnt try to make fun of the situation but keeps it light-hearted and straight forward.
also because she is an english mum (as well as a paediatrician)there are no american terminology to fumble through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 7 Dec 2009
By New Mum
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Agree with all the positive reviews already here. My 3 year old son is very strong willed as well as sensitive and the all-out approach was never going to be on the cards. This book helped me get into my son's head as well as understand his physical development. We started the process a few months ago with no pressure 'potty time' and now he frequently decides for himself that he wants to wear pants; something I would never have believed possible before we started. We have had very few accidents and his confidence has grown steadily along the way. Can't recommend this book enough.
