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 !
I've only read it through once and my little one is on day one of training. I've known she was ready for a while but I just didn't know how to help her and any time I tried she ended up just going to the toilet on the floor. I've implemented some of the things whilst reading the book and she is now no longer scared of the potty and she's used it (with my help) all afternoon today! My attitude towards training has completely changed as I thought it was all or nothing which I now know is wrong :)
I found some of the prudishness (or concessions to readers potential prudishness) a bit odd. It had never occurred to me to worry about my daughter catching site of a man weeing if her dad needs to take her into the gents.
I liked the fact that the language in the book had been adapted for the UK but it was amusing to note that this had clearly been done using 'search and replace': at least one inappropriate replacement of store with shop.
I did the quiz and it said she's ready and gave some very practical suggestions, which I tried and she was out of nappies in a few days.
I think the difference between now a days and our parents days is that these days, with such good disposables, its far harder to recognise the signs, for us and our kids. Plus its so much easier, no washing nappies 3 times a week for us, so we can tend to let it slide for much longer.
If you're happy to wait till they are ready (ie, can tell you themselves they need the loo) and want an easy time for both child and adult, (without having to ask every 5 mins, all day long, for months 'Do you need a wee'), then this is the book for you.
