I first read this book when my daughter was 16 months old and based on the readiness questionnaire early on I decided it was not quite time to start with actual potty training. However, the book has provided me with a great starting point and I feel much more prepared for the journey we will soon be embarking on.
Two months on, I’ve implemented a couple of the tips mentioned and I’m constantly referring to the readiness questionnaire to gauge if we should start. I’m already seeing how the changes I’ve made are creating a positive association with the potty. For example, my now 18-month-old is identifying when she is making a wee or a poo and is very proud of herself when I confirm that what’s in her nappy is in fact what she told me was in it. I feel at ease and empowered to take on this next milestone.
My suggestion would be to buy and read the book when you first start thinking it could be time to start potty-training. The book provides an excellent foundation for this journey and it is an easy-read so you don’t need to worry that you won’t get through it.
There are also some really good tips on how to prevent the public (and private) tantrums and scenes that every parent dreads escalating or even starting in the first place.
I now regularly use the A-Z solutions section at the back of the book for those momements when I need inspiration with my two boys!
Harmony at our house has now been restored!
The book helped me change that. It's often not easy combining three under fives, a full time job and a husband who is out of the country all week, every week. But my girls are amazing. They know the rules, they understand what consequences there are if they don't play by them. We all love the "restaurant rules". In stead of me saying: sit on your chair, use your knive and fork, don't shout, don't mess with your food, ... I just have to remind them to follow the restaurant rules, and they know what I mean. We have different sets of rules for shopping, playtime, eating out, ... and they know them all.
The most amazing proof of how well this book works is when complete strangers give me compliments on how well my girls are behaving. It makes me positively glow with pride.
Thanks for such an amazing book!!!
"The No Cry Discipline Solution" is, in my opinion at least, a wonderful book, which empowers parents AND children at the same time. Sounds impossible? I thought so too when I first approached Pantley's work. But I used the No Cry Potty Training Solution for my son - the results were simply beyond my wildest hopes, he sailed thro the process with barely a backward glance - fantastic! So when things started to get a bit too fractious in the house due to my son getting a bad case of "Being 3" (!), I turned to Pantley again. Her suggestions (and all her books are just that, SUGGESTIONS, not "must do's") are gentle, but seriously effective. She makes many different suggestions, and its up to each individual parent to decide which ones will work best to suit theirs and their child's personality, lifestyle, belief systems etc. What I like most about Pantley's work is that its so very human - there are no wrong decisions, because we all get it wrong from time to time. The key, Pantley suggests, is to forgive yourself and your child, begin tomorrow as a new day and try a new approach until you find one that works. I have to say, by making even just a few minor adjustments as suggested by this book, I began noticing results VERY very quickly - better co-operation, fewer tantrums, and much more of the harmonious, loving relationship I want with my son. Just what I hoped for! Yes, there are some days when I just don't *feel* like using all my "No Cry" techniques .. but those days quickly become unbearable and I soon find MYSELF taking a time out to regroup, forgive, and try again! And it works. It just works. I can't recommend this book highly enough. Try it!
