4 Stars - Very good book - Excellent tips and sets correct expectations (Oct 11, 2010) Reviewer: Consumer Advocate

We are very pleased with this book. We bought when our son was 9 months old because parents were pressuring us to have son potty trained by 12 months. This book reassured us about the normal range for children to be potty trained and it is NOT 12 months. The book sets expectations and gives very good tips and examples of how to train. I am recommending this book to all my pregnant friends. My only complaint is that there are so many good tips, they should put them in bullet points instead of paragraph form. This would allow us busy parents to refer back to the book easier.

I bought this book for my 26 month old grandson who doesn't have the slightest interest in potty training. His parents have started to read it and say that the book has many good points that they are going to try.

Covers the basics about potty training readiness and the typical methods to try. Not too much on problem solving.

I found this book to be very useful. I helped me figure out why my son was doing certain things during potty training.

This book was actually quite informative in the first quarter about mental readiness and physical signs to watch for. The problem is that it never targets troubleshooting issues that occur during the training. It seems to go from "Here are signs that you're ready to go potty" and then straight to "Now that your child is trained, here are relapse issues". It doesn't target issues or problems you have during the training process. One section that I was very interested in was dealing with kids who hide when they are doing a BowelMovement. It had a title sectioned with that teaser but no solutions other than to say, "It happens." About 75 percent of the book is devoted to problems you might have &40;bedwetting,etc&41; for an older child &40;5 years plus&41; who is already mostly potty trained.

An excellent book, I am a Pediatrician and I firmly believe that the American Academy of Pediatrics had the best interests of our kids at heart when they wrote this book. It is informative, helpful, and fun to read. It helped to calm my concerns that I should be rushing my son to potty train, I think I'll wait a little longer until he's really ready.

Excellent advice in this book, excellent views on children and how each is different. I can't stand the people who are so cut and dry, like.."well this is all you gotta do..." like that is supposed to work for every child. Doubt it! My son is 14 months and I am introducing the potty, he actually enjoys the trips to the bathroom and having me read his "potty book" to him. I recommend this book, and I actually just leant it too a friend who has a 3 year old who has no interest in the potty. Hopefully it will give her some great tips that work for her son as well. =&41;

This is a nice overview of the potty training process with whole chapters that help you to think about whether you are ready as well as whether your child is ready. It is very nonjudgmental and does not seem to have much of an axe to grind, except to emphasize that you need a lot of patience and children develop at different rates
