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.

*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.

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

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.

I was having a real battle with my toddler over the whole potty idea, and stressing over the whole experience, and he was at the point of refusing to even sit on the potty. This book was calming, reassuring and made me realise that I was stressing for no real reason and that by calming myself down and putting less stress on both of us it would make potty training so much nicer.
So two weeks later my toddler is now 95% potty trained (just doing transition to 'big' toilet). Thanks to this book for making the transition a lot smoother than I ever thought it would be!
