The American Academy of Pediatrics Guide to Toilet Training by American Academy Of Pediatrics

The Toilet-Training Book Your Doctor Recommends

How will I know when my child is ready? What do I do if my child resists? How can I handle bedwetting and other accidents?

What’s the best way to make this a positive experience for both of us?

Helping your child through the toilet-training process may be one of your greatest challenges as a new parent. And when it comes to this important developmental stage, every child is unique. Some are “ready” earlier than others, and not all children respond to the same approach. If you’ve been confused by conflicting advice from friends, relatives--even other books--here is expert advice from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the organization representing the nation’s finest pediatricians.

This invaluable resource covers everything you need to know about the toilet-training process to make this important transition as easy and as positive as possible for both you and your child.

This comprehensive guide answers parents’ most frequently asked questions and concerns, including:

• When to toilet train: finding the age that’s right for your child
• How to choose and install a potty
• Positive ways to handle the inevitable “accidents”
• What to do when your child resists
• Practical advice for common problems such as constipation
• Toilet training children with special needs
• Special tips for boys, girls, even twins
• Coping with bedwetting and soiling
• And much more

The American Academy of Pediatrics Guide to Toilet Training is a must-have resource for parents who want the best advice for themselves and the best experience for their children.

This book was very hard to read as formatting was terrible with text running into text boxes or jumping around for no reason. While the information was decent, trying to read the book was a horrible experience.

I found this book interesting as a guide for things to keep in mind while potty training my nephew. As is the case with most 'caring for your child' books, most of what was said is common sense. Be patient. Be loving. Understand the unique needs of your child. It's all the same. But it's good to have a few reminders of things to keep in mind. The book also had a few tips that I found interesting and possibly helpful. (I admit, he's not potty trained yet!)

This covers the basics of toilet training. It lacks a specific method and doesn't really solve toilet training problems. Typical textbook style expected by the AAP.

This book is a wonderful reference with information based on medical research and not fad theories. The content can be applied to more then just potty training, but other challenges your child faces as well. The book showed me that some things I was doing out of instinct was counter productive. It does read much like a textbook.
