Overview


Potty Training Boys the Easy Way is a pediatrician’s guide for navigating the challenges unique to toilet training boys. Boys tend to take longer to be trained, learn this skill at later ages, and have different challenges from girls. Parents will find an accessible plan for getting their son trained quickly, clever games to make learning to use the toilet fun, as well as important tips for handling accidents and setbacks.

The book includes advice on boy-specific problems, such as whether to teach him to sit or stand and how to aim, dealing with distractions, handling refusals, and staying dry through the night. Practical and reassuring, Potty Training Boys the Easy Way is packed with all the information a family needs to achieve this important milestone calmly and confidently.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Library Journal, starred review
“To use two bad puns, just when you think the market for potty-training books is saturated, along comes a new one that is worth the price tag, even though it’s a little dry. Writing specifically about boys, pediatrician Fertleman (Whittington Hosp., UK) and health editor Cave present a concise plan in fewer than 120 pages, which ambitious moms can read during baby’s nap. It is simple and factual and does an excellent job of addressing common counter-arguments. Guides for determining if your son is ready and tips for preparation until he is (e.g., let him see himself peeing in the bath) are excellent. Overeager parents would do well to read about the role of the hormone vasopressin in bedwetting.”

This was the only potty training method that worked for my son - it really gets into the heads of little boys. The method was simple, fitted with my life (I'm a working mom and didn't want to have to take a week off work just to potty train! who would???). Can't recommend it highly enough.
