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.
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.
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!
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
