This book has a very realistic approach to toilet training. Anyone that has young children should read this book---I wish I would have read it with my other two! The basic attitude of the book is to be as positive as possible and that most kids are physically ready around age 2-3 and emotionally ready at different ages.

Covers a whole gamut of topics that relate or affect potty training. Picked up a lot of good pointers, especially the answer to the most basic question of them all, "How does one parent begin?" I've never been disappointed with any book published by the American Academy of Pediatrics, just because for me, more is better. This book covers everything a new parent might wonder about -- chronic bedwetting, guidelines for special needs children, bladder complications, urinary tract infections etc.

I really liked the approach to this book. Very 'you-can-do-this'. My favorite was how it addressed the usual dread parents feel toward potty training, and that this can be an unique opportunity to discover how your child learns best and can set the stage for a great parent-child relationship.

Very general ideas, I will want to read a few more books on specific approaches before starting.

This book had some good info. A lot of it was common sense, but some ideas and aspects were new to me. Plus, it doesn't hurt to reinforce common sense or what you think you may know about this topic- always good to know if you are on the right path. We'll see if it helps when we begin in a few months, he's not ready yet!

So far, this book is changing the way I think about potty training. And I am sure my son appreciates it. (Although others around me may not!)

Mostly, I appreciated that this was more of a "do what feels right to you" book instead of a "you're a lousy mom cause your kid is 3 and still in diapers" kind of book.

If you're looking for a systematic, step-by-step guide for how to potty train, this isn't it. The book has a lot of good pointers that supplement whatever system you're using, how to troubleshoot post-training accidents or regressions, but doesn't tell you how to do the actual training.
Isabelle
Always love books by the American Academy of Pediatrics! Gave great advice and tips on what to expect through this often stressful process. A must read for all parents entering the potty training stage!
Andrea
This book was fine. I didn't really have any feelings about it, so I don't have anything else to say.

Good, practical, positive recommendations for potty training. Now I'm crossing my fingers that it works!

Good book, but mostly common sense. I still think it's good to review before starting potty training as a way of reassuring yourself. It also lists a lot of other resources for more information.

The basics are here, but don't expect to find any amazing breakthrough ideas. I'm beginning to think that's because they don't exist.
Hayley
Nothing new that I hadn't read about (or heard about) already. This one's going right back to the library.
Caroline
I really just skimmed it, but it had some good tips.

Definitely promotes waiting till the kids makes the move...almost to much of it being in the kid's hands IMO. But there were still some good points. Easy to read. Good section on bedwetting.
