Ok so having had two completely opposite experiences with potty training with both a boy and a girl I felt compelled to write a review for this book. I bought this book 2 1/2 years ago when I began training my now 4 1/2 year old daughter. She took to potty training really easily at first and was dry at night before she was dry during the day. Then about 6 months in came a bout of constipation followed by holding her poos in and 2 1/2 years later, lots of tears and paediatrician appointments she is only now potty trained. I can honestly say without hesitation that if you have a child struggling with potty training, this book will make it worse, put lots of pressure on you, and make you feel like you are doing something wrong. A child will be potty trained when they are ready and at no other time. I could have offered my daughter the mooon on a stick but she was terrified of going to the toilet. I followed a lot of the advice over what to do in these situations and it made no difference to her. She ended up so impacted she has spent the last two years on laxatives to try and put things right.
When it came to potty training my son we decided to take a completely different approach and ditch anything I have ever read from Gina Ford. I didn't do anything. I didn't use pull ups, that's the only thing I agree with. They don't work in my opinion. I reminded him every now and then, didn't use reward charts, didn't plan it with military precision like some kind of crazy person. He is happy with a kiss and a high 5 and is clean, dry day and night after 3 weeks. No pressure, no stress.Read more ›
Hopefully that is the end and he will go to school the same as the others. I am now going to give it a month and start on my younger son!
I would recommend this to anyone who is struggling!
