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

• What to do when your child resists
