I am a working mom of 2 kids, ages 4 and 2. When we were potty training our eldest child, it was a nightmare. It seemed like I did everything wrong. There were arguments and it got to the point where she was refusing to sit on the potty. Shortly after our son was born, she started peeing on the potty all on her own and I was pleased but then it took almost a year before she would have a pooh on the potty. (It was the not pooping on the potty which led me to buy The No Cry Potty Training Solution, because I was convinced it would never happen.) Well of course, she eventually started to poop on the potty and all is well now.

So the real story starts with my son. After reading your book, I realized, I started too early with my daughter. I tried to force the issue and everything got really ugly. (Partly, I blame my mom for this who still rambles on about how when I was a toddler, if children weren't trained by age 2, there was something wrong with 1. The child or 2. The parent. And I didn't know any different.) So when it came time to train my son, I decided to read this book from start to finish before I even got started. This really enforced why things had gone so badly with my daughter. After doing the quiz, I knew he was pretty much ready. I reminded myself of the 2 most important things: the patience of the teacher and the attitude of the teacher. What a completely different experience it was. 1. I didn't even start training him until he was 31 months. 2. I was completely laid back about the whole thing and had a positive attitude. Within a week of talking about it, and a little bribery with a sticker chart and jelly beans. (1 for sitting on the potty, 2 if he peed.) and he was trained. One Saturday he peed on the potty for the first time and by Monday, he was heading down to the potty without telling anyone and going pee by himself. I was in disbelief. I truly think it was because of this book. He still asks for a diaper for his poops, but I'm not worried, I know this will come eventually. He's only been trained for 3 weeks now.

I just wanted to thank Elizabeth and let others know that I really felt her book helped me get through this experience so much more painlessly than the first time. And although I'll continue to hear my mother repeat her stories about how my sister was trained by 15 months and I was trained by 18 months bla bla bla. I will know deep down, I did things the right way this time.

just ok

This book is ok but not great. Common sense advice, nothing ground breaking.
