How do you know when your child is ready for toilet training? Is it okay to use rewards? What happens when you have to return to diapers? Parent educator and columnist Jan Faull helps you determine when it's time to start potty training and walks you through the process and such problems as bed-wetting and constipation. She also suggests when to switch toilet-training methods. The anecdotes in each chapter's "Stories from the Bathroom" illustrate how different approaches can make toilet training successful and trouble-free for both parents and children. And if you're on the receiving end of criticism regarding your child's toilet-training (you know, the "But all my children were potty-trained by the time they were..."), you'll appreciate Faull's tips on handling unsolicited advice.
