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.

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.

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.

I only just bought a potty and finished reading the book last week. My son is turning 2 in a couple of weeks and I wanted to feel more prepared to what to expect for potty training boys.
I heard all kind of horror stories and I am glad I bought this book.
It states clearly
- what you can do to hel your child
- what you can expect at the different step of potty training
When I finished reading it, I had 2 thoughts: firstly the dad must read it absolutely, secondly I will need the book near by when I start to remind me of steps and what to do.
it is not 'buy the book and it will happen' this is a guidance and you can take what you want from it. I would buy it for someone else, definitely. And now I am not scrarred of potty training any more. I picture David and Victoria Beckham doing it and it seems easy enough.

By PK on 3 April 2012
Format: Paperback
Our 32 month old seemed to be going backwards when it came to toilet training and with pre-school approaching we were getting slightly stressed.

We followed the advice in the book about making an occasion of potty training; after a week or so of not pushing the 'big boy pants' issue at all, we went shopping on a Saturday morning for some new pants and a potty that would stay in the living room. We then just left the packets of pants on the kitchen table but didn't talk about them for the rest of the weekend.

I left my little boy with his Aunty when I went to work the following Monday. When I got home she whispered; "He's been wearing big boy pants for most of today!". Toddler had suddenly asked to wear them without any prompting and had been happily using the potty.

That was around 2 weeks ago and he's been in pants nearly every day since. Poos and wees on the potty or toilet. Some days he wants nappies but less and less.

This book made me realise that my lovely boy wasn't slow, he just didn't like being pushed or nagged.

Thank you Simone!

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.
