Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"At last, someone has provided parents with a fun-filled, non-threatening approach to help children who hold in their bowel movements. Dr. Bennett's book will be a permanent fixture in my waiting room." --Benny Kerzner, M.D., Chairman, Department of Gastroenterology, Children's National Medical Center

"Every child with toilet training trouble should see this book!" -Allison Schonwald, M.D., Pediatrician, Harvard Medical School, Author of the Pocket Idiot's Guide to Potty Training Problems

"It Hurts When I Poop! is a wonderful book. My daughter runs a little show, digestion-wise, and is prone to tummy aches when she holds everything in. Dr. Bennett's story provided her with knowledge about her body, confidence in her intelligence, and a plan to remedy the situation. I heartily recommend Dr. Benntt's smart, playful treatment of a frustrating problem." -Mary Kay Zuravleff, Author of The Bowl is Already Broken

"This is a terrific book that will help children overcome the fears they experience while using the potty. I highly recommend this book and think it will be enthusiastically received by parents and children alike." -Teri Crane, Author of Potty Train Your Child in Just One Day: Proven Secrets of the Potty Pro --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The book was too advanced for him and it didn't hold his attention.
Jemini W.
By the third day of reading the book (several times a day), she wanted to sit on her potty and give it a try.

I really like the story and the help this book gives to help your child with potty.

My daughter has had a poo poo problem for three years and FINALLY!!!!.....I purchased the book and from the first time I read it to her she started to relate to Ryan. She wanted me to read her the book at least five times a night and when she was on the toilet. People don't understand the late nights crying on the toilet for three hours at a time unless they have been through something like this. My daughter was in pain every day and Ryan has the exact symptoms as my daughter had. I really wanted to thank the author of this book. I also purchased one for my daughters doctor. If your child has this problem please buy this book it really has done wonders for my daughter and the family.

This book provided more progress for us in 1 week than anything else did in almost 2 years! Our daughter is almost 4 and has dealt with "withholding issues" for almost 2 years since being constipated once when she was two. We got this book last week for her and she has actually pooped in the potty 5 times now for the first time in her life! For the last 2 years she has been on the prescription stool softener MiraLAX which has prevented further constipation but never caused her to stop being afraid of letting her BM's out. She has been almost deathly afraid of pooping in her pull-up and even more so in the potty. We tried everything and became so frustrated with seeing our precious girl go through such self-induced agony as she held her BM's in on a daily basis. I felt hopeless in being able to reach her ... but thankfully, Ryan did, the little boy character in this book. She related instantly to him as he went through the same agony as she did. As Ryan learned through a story from his doctor followed by a little anatomy lesson, our daughter learned. It seemed to ease her tension almost immediately. By the third day of reading the book (several times a day), she wanted to sit on her potty and give it a try. She was successful the first time and has since been successful almost each day. I can't tell you the relief and pride that she has in herself now and of course her parents too. I highly recommend this book for any child who is fearful of letting out his/her poop. I hope it works out as well for others as it did for us.

When you have been through 2 years of poop problems, and not knowing what else to do, this book is the answer. It describes perfectly how my daughter felt, it was if she wrote it. I love this book, it is her favorite book. Some tomes we don't talk about these kind of this because we are ashamed, but now with this book it is easy to help in this matter. I am so thankful I found this book, I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

This book was perfect for my son who has been having trouble pooping for a few months. He totally relates to the main character Ryan. I think that this book together with a prescribed laxative from our dr. solved our son's problem. Prior to this, he would go five days with no poop. Now he is pooping everyday. Wonderful!!

I wish I would have had this book a few years ago for our middle child, he too had "poop" issues. My friends could not even begin to understand the torment we went through weekly knowing that our son and now our youngest daughter - needed to poop. It was a week long battle of "bumping" as we called it (holding it in), dirty underwear, screaming fits, suppositories, yelling, bribing, etc...

Our son has somewhat outgrown the problem, although he only poops every two or three days. However, it is not the ordeal it once was. But we still have a four year old daughter going through the same torment. This book was an INSTANT success, I'm talking overnight. I wish I could pinpoint the thing that made the difference, but part of me has to believe seeing it on paper that another child "just like me" has the same problem, that it's okay and there are solutions. She has pooped a total of six times without much problem...we sit her on the toilet every other night and read her the book (of course at her request). My husband and I almost fell off our chair when the other day she was making motions like she needed to poop and he asked her - She said "yes" and proceeded to the toilet like it was the normal thing to do. It almost brings me to tears as I write it. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Don't hesitate to get this book, it WORKS!!!

Format: Paperback
We've been having many of the same issues as previous reviewers and were thrilled to find this book. My 3.5 year old son was very excited to get the book "special delivery" so we read it right away. It was really neat how the character Ryan mirrored my son in every way. It was easy for us to relate to Ryan. However, I was seriously disappointed by the ending of the book! There is no resolution to Ryan's problem. The book ends with the Dr. giving Ryan a plan. Without showing Ryan actually conquering his fears, this book actually didn't help us at all. I think it might have if we could show him, "Look, Ryan did it, you can too!"
Truly a disappointment, given how much we enjoyed the rest of the book.

This book is NOT about being scared of using the toilet. This is a book about a child who is scared to poop because it hurts! If you are looking for a book about toilet training, this is NOT your book. If your child has issues with hard, overly big poops that cause them to shake, shiver and cry, even to the point of rectal bleeding, this IS the book for you and your child!

When my kiddo was initally potty trained at age 2 1/2, everything was fine. Then, in Kindergarten when he went to school all day (8:30-3 PM), he refused to poop in any toilet that wasn't his, or when I wasn't there. Thus, the poop problems began.
He is now in first grade and he will hold it for several days until it starts to come out on his own. I brought this book BACK out (I bought it when he was potty training, but it wasn't really pertinent then) and now he totally relates to the main character, Ryan. Things are getting better; we have a point of reference to discuss now when I remind him that he should at least try to poop or when it's time to eat vegetables and fruit.

If your child has poop issues, get this book. IF YOU ARE INITIALLY POTTY TRAINING, DON'T BOTHER.
