Overview

In his 15th parenting book, Toilet Training Without Tantrums, nationally recognized expert John Rosemond lays to rest the notion that potty training must be the complicated, emotionally draining, stressful event it has become for children and parents. Your great-grandmother would be amazed to learn that toilet training has become one of Mom's greatest sources of anxiety and frustration during her child's early years. To Great-Grandma, it was no worse than teaching her child to use a spoon.

Rosemond does not write from the perspective of a psychologist, but with the common sense and authority derived from 30 years of counseling parents, and from his two children and seven grandchildren, some of whom he helped toilet train. He advises an old-fashioned approach to toilet training that would have earned Grandma's stamp of approval. This book is helpful, revealing, and funny. Best of all, the method works! Thousands of parents have used it to discover how easy toilet training can be.

With his trademark parents-take-control style, Rosemond covers everything from the basic how-to and troubleshooting issues to successful testimonies and proper encouragement. His straightforward and no-nonsense advice utilizes simple steps with proven results. No arguing, bribing, or cajoling necessary. It helps parents avoid common toilet-training mistakes, and leads the way to a diaper-free household.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Not the least appealing attribute about John Rosemond's writings about potty training is his calming tone. "Approach toilet training," he advises, "with the same casual, matter-of-fact attitude with which you approached teaching your child to eat with a spoon. They are, after all, both self-help skills. Despite psychobabble to the contrary, neither is fraught with apocalyptic psychological ramifications." His fourteenth book, Toilet Training Without Tantrums, addresses this anxiety-raising process with reassuring specificity. With his method, there is no parental hovering or self-accusatory handwringing. A top potty tutor; a paperback original.
