5.0 out of 5 stars A great, great, book - buy it ! 16 July 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book before embarking on potty training my 2.5 year old daughter. I was encouraged by the customer review and thought I would go ahead and buy it - I was not disappointed.

Having read the Gina Ford book (Potty Training in One Week), I knew that approach was not for me - far too regimented and unrealistic and no FUN!

This book has a real common sense approach to training with lots of advice on pre-training, setting up, prize/reward systems, dealing with (inevitable) accidents, and follow-up advice once your child becomes independent.

I have read and re-read this book - it seems to have an answer for any problem which arises during the training period. I followed her advice and my little girl is now pretty independent after a couple of weeks of training - we've had accidents along the way but we are getting there.

The book advises a light-hearted, "let's make this fun" kind of approach which appealed to me and, more importantly, WORKED !!

Good Luck !

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for every parent 12 Sep 2008
This is a necessity for every parent starting potty training for their toddles. It is very flexible because it gives the parent many options. I used it for my 2 year old daughter and I lent it to my sister to use it for her daughter too. The author stresses two main points which I always remember whenever my daughter makes accidents: patience and encouragement. This book can be used again and again for all your children. I am saving it now for my newborn baby boy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Potty Training Book Out There 21 May 2007
Elizabeth Pantley's No Cry Potty Training Solution is one amazing book. She knows exactly what a parent needs to succeed in teaching their toddler to use the potty. I have twin boys and I never thought I would be able to get them to stop peeing on the floor and into a potty. Elizabeth's book helped me do that. The one thing that I like best about the book is that Elizabeth has real families telling their potty problems. Wow!!! I'm not alone, real people, real problems but with Elizabeth's help, a real solution. That is what I love about the No Cry Potty Training Solution. It is easy to follow and the quick reference guides are wonderful. Most importantly, Elizabeth eloquently describes that you don't have to follow a set standard on how or when you should potty train. She simply states that it is ok to follow your child's cues and do what works best for you and your family. Only you know your child best. I however, think that Elizabeth knows every child best. I recommend that if you are even thinking about potty training...look no further, run out and get this book right away. I promise you won't be able to put it down.

5.0 out of 5 stars A really useful book 2 Dec 2008
For me this is the best book I have come across on potty training. I used it for my son - and although I wouldn't say it was a joy training him - it was much easier than I expected. The most useful thing for me was the detailed readiness questionnaire. It considers both the readiness of the child - such as language skills, interest in the subject, independence and also of the parent and of the whole family - even including if the next few months were going to be particularly stressful and busy. It covers a huge range of potential issues and problem and what I particularly like is its additute. It emphasis that there are lots of techniques that you can try and which ones work just depends one where you and your child's personalities and situation.

5.0 out of 5 stars no cry potty training solutions 8 Jun 2011
By steph
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Fantastic, realistic book. When I started off potty training my 2 1/2 year old daughter, I have spent a fortune on other potty books, charts, rewards and other things to get my daughter on the potty and was getting to the point when I was getting annoyed with not making any progress, this book was my last resort I wish I had bought it sooner as it would have saved me money that I didnt have to dish out and countless amount of tears and stress. But the best thing about this book is that its not written by some one that doesn't have children she is a mother and knows what she is talking and writting about. This is a must have book for any parent that is going through potty trainnig, dont be put off by how thin the book is though, its jam packed with wonderful ideas and solutions, its also a stress relief for parents as well...a must for all parents!!

5.0 out of 5 stars No Cry Potty Training Solution 26 Mar 2009
By J. Yeo
This book is brilliant - much more realistic and user friendly than 'potty training in one week'! There are loads of tips for coping with problems and it really helps you see this task from the childs point of view. Really helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Brilliant Brilliant 29 Jan 2009
Fantastic book for potty training has several questionnaires to help you decide if your child is ready for potty training the pointers and tips really helped and worked wonders for getting my son on the toilet. Very easy to read parent friendly great for any parent who has a more relexed approach like myself and wants to wait until they feel that their child is ready rather than just going by what a text book says. I would highly recommend this book.

The No-Cry Potty Training Solution book is just amazing!! If you are a parent who is starting the process of potty training, OR going to be starting the potty training in the future, you will NEED this book. I have read a couple of books about potty training, that had some ideas here and there, but this book has ALL of the ideas and assistance in one very easy to understand book.

During my potty training of my daughter, I had some stress and no patience. After reading this book I realized that I needed to control my patience, and once I did and had the correct tools it did not take long at all for my daughter to succeed, and with few accidents.

Elizabeth Pantley gives you creative ideas to help along the potty process, my favorite (and my daughters) was a box of wrapped little presents (i.e., play dough, crayons, coloring book) and whenever my daughter used the potty she got a gift. She loved that positive reinforcement!!

Another great thing in the book is a quiz about Potty Readiness that you can take from the beginning to see where your child is on the potty training.

From a mother of 2 with 1 successful potty trained daughter, and a son who will be starting within the next year, I highly recommend The No-Cry Potty Solution book from Elizabeth Pantley to all the moms and dads who are getting ready to start the potty training and even for the expecting moms to have something GOOD to look forward too.

Mother of 2
