    Oh my gosh, it worked! Wowee!

    I was really skeptical of this book, but, oh my gosh, it worked! My daughter was not potty trained in half a day, but she was self-initiating within one week and accident free within two! I still feel a little thrill every time she runs to the potty calling 'Mama, pee pee!' She feels so proud of herself too! The 'big day' was incredibly frustrating for me (expect this)as my daughter was pretty resistent at first and it took a lot of practice runs before she realized what it was she was supposed to do. I think that the expectation that this should be accomplished in one day made me feel a bit of a failure when it wasn't, but I stuck with it and here we are, chucking out our diaper pail! She is even accident free at night, and has actually gotten up in the night to go to the bathroom! I'm a first time mom and had NO IDEA how to begin and this book really helped me to understand that children have to LEARN potty skills. Maybe it works for some kids but it wasn't enough for my little one to watch mom go to the potty, or watch videos and read books. My little girl needed to experience success, learn what it is she needs to do, and feel the confidence that comes from this. We kind of combined methods as we would have her go to the potty when we knew she would most likely have to use the bathroon (i.e. 1/2 hour after breakfast, or a little while after a big drink) and as she had more and more success she started self-intitiating more and more, and if she had an accident we would do practice runs. This was enough to help her understand. However, don't reprimand too harshly with accidents (I think the book said to say that wetting your pants is 'bad'). It's enough to just say 'No. Big girls (boys) don't wet their pants'. Kids will get it. If they don't understand that, then they will understand how awful wet training pants feel. We seriously want to run around shouting 'SHE'S USING THE POTTY EVERYTIME, OH MY GOODNESS!!!!' And this was a kid who would cry if I even mentioned the word potty :)

    Excellent Book!

    This is the best handbook I ever received as a young parent. It worked with both of my children and we had a fun time as well. It provides a list that helps you determine if your child has the skills needed to take themselves to the toilet. The book also helps you prepare your child for the training. You must be prepared to devote an entire day to your child, but one day out of a lifetime to give them the confidence and skill to take care of themselves for the first time is more than worth it! It's a short book, but PLEASE read the entire book a few times before starting the day. It will help you prepare yourself and the child for the big day. If you follow the simple guidelines outlined in the book, your child may, as my first born did, walk up to you after breakfast one day, carrying the potty chair and ASKED to be trained!

    I couldn't believe it

    What an amazing tool! Just because it is 30 years old, doesn't mean that it won't work! It did with our 2 1/2 year old son! He successfully was potty trained by the end of the day. This book delivers all that it promises: NO MORE DIAPERS IN ONE DAY! My husband trained him while I went out and ran a half days of errands. I couldn't believe it. You MUST be willing to follow the directions to the letter! It is a wonderful resource and I highly recommend it! My son's self confidence went up and he started dressing himself and doing more pretend play by himself just because of the methods in this book. What a blessing. I wish I had started it earlier. I am glad I did it now when I am six months pregnant! Now I will only have one set of diapers to change!

    Success = 30% book, 70% good judgement

    I read this book and the reviews, and decided to try the method with my 29 month old boy. I was excited (and skeptical), and decided to give it a shot and hope for the best but try to keep the experience positive. Now, after 4 days of 'Toilet Training in Less than a Day' I feel like I can add my 2 cents. I think this book did a good job of laying out a plan than you can follow - like a recipe. Though there is so much detail involved, that I don't know how you can remember to do everything they recommend. But with that said, some of the steps they recommend didn't work very well for us, and I think may have been a little damaging. I liked the practice of the child raising and lowering their own pants, dumping their own potty and flushing - don't forget to add washing hands - putting wet clothes in their hamper and helping to clean up accidents. That worked well for us. The positive practice trials did not work well. They invoked immediate tears -of fear, not anger- and ended up with him sobbing and feeling horrible. For us - the yummy beverage and extra snacks tactic didn't really work either - he didn't want any pop, juice or even chocolate milk and didn't want to drink much more than normal, so we didn't have as many opportunities to sit and 'go', so the training took longer than a day, like 2-3 days. So after a full day of really trying to stick to the book , and not being trained, the second day he went into a bit of rebellion, and was demotivated due to 'Wet pants are BAD!' and 'No accidents!'. I realized when grandma and grandpa came to visit, and he told them after an accident 'Mommy said no accidents' and just bawled, that I better back off. After that, and really laying on the encourangement with toys, and prizes, and lots of hugs and kisses from grandma and grandpa and not as much scolding about wet pants, he shaped up and began to tell us when he had to go. Now he's been accident free for 1 full day and off to a good start today in underwear.

    Unbelievable!!!

    A friend gave me this book and the title just seemed to good to be true. I put the book on the shelf and now wish I would have read it sooner...the results on unbelievable. My 2 1/2 year old was actually trained in less than one day! I did exactly what the book suggested and to my surprise it worked. The first day of training was absolutely exhausting, but so worth it. My daughter had two accidents the firts day, and zero the second. She refused to wear diapers on the second night so I let her ware under ware to bed. She woke me up 4 times to go to the bathroom and went accident free all night. Enough said, I highly recommend this book.

    I used this book to train my daughter many years ago, and she still remembers it as a fun and positive experience. She was only 2 1/2 at the time, but she described it in detail to me when she was a teenager. Now my children are using this method for their children. I followed the directions in detail. It is important to read it carefully before toilet training, though.  It did take more than one day, but in much less than a week my kids kids were trained for day and night. I knew many that worked on toilet training  with their kids for many frustrating months! I highly recommend this book!

    BEST BOOK EVER!!! 
    I used this book over 22 yrs. ago on my 27 month old son. I read the book twice to make sure I followed 
    directions. He was trained in less than a day! I bought the book for my daughter to use for  my grandchildren. The book may have been written a long 
    time ago but it still is the best book by far! I wish I had had it when my daughter who is twelve years older than my son was being potty trained.  I was skeptical when I heard about the book 
    on the radio one day, but after I bought it and used it I am so glad I was listening that day!¿

    Very informative

    I picked up this book based on some recommendations I read online. I found it very simple to read and informative. My almost 2 year old son is showing some signs of interest in being potty trained and I wanted to read up on what to do so it's not a struggle when the time comes to train. I will definitely read this book a few more times before beginning the training. After reading the book the first time I felt like I could do this with my son and can see the added benefits of teaching independence with the training and not relying on mommy or daddy to know when to go or what to do.

    more from this reviewer

    The Title Says It All - Essential for all first time Moms.

    Bottom line - It works. To be honest, it took me 2 days to train my firstborn, but we started when he was about 20 months. In two days, he was using the training toilet, emptying and flushing the 'big' toilet, pulling up his training pants, and washing his hands. Ditto for little brother, who came along a few years later. The Grandmas were thrilled - and a bit amazed that we'd pulled it off. That was 25 years ago. Today I buy this book for baby showers, along with something pretty for the new Mom to be. Most are amazed that the book exists - let alone that it's a 30 year classic.

    It worked!

    After disastrous experiences with my still-not-completely trained four-year-old, I used this book to train my two-year-old (26 months), and it worked beautifully. Some of the references are clearly dated (it's from the 70s after all) and we trained right to the toilet rather than using a potty chair. But the general method is very sound and it worked extremely well for her. She has an occasional accident--always on the bathroom floor, because she didn't get there quite in time. But those are limited to maybe one a week. This book is DEFINITELY worth purchasing, reading, and implementing. The savings in diapers is wonderful.

    Don't expect success in their claimed "4 hours"!

    I like the method and I believe it works better than anything my friends have tried. However, I almost gave up in despair when my 26 month old daughter took 4 days to get the hang of it. She is on her second week and has only had 2 accidents in the last 7 days. I am able to take her out and she lets me know when she has to go.
    Don't be discouraged if it takes you longer than 4 hours!

    Disappointing

    This book is about a program created to teach mentally challenged adults how to use the toilet, and then modified for how to use it for children. I found it surprisingly harsh and controlling.

    IT WORKS!

    I have used this book for each of our 4 boys--and it worked with EVERY ONE OF THEM. I never tried to potty them before using the techniques of the book, and by the end of the day, not one of them used a diaper for bed! IT IS AMAZING, BUT WORTH IT. The book should have a better format than it does for quick referencing. This could be frustrating at times, but don't get discouraged. Read it, make your lists and mark your pages for quick answers to situations that may arise! I have recommended this to several people and to nursery schools--YOU MUST FOLLOW THE BOOK COMPLETELY AND YOU WILL GET THE POSITVE RESULTS!

    Old, outdated advice

    This book has a promising title, but it was written in the 80s and it shows. The 'toilet train at all costs' approach brings more unhappiness and tantrums than are necessary or desired during the toilet training period. Expecting too much, too fast is a recipe for anger and disappointment.
