I bought this book on a whim. I've been wanting to potty train my 2 1/2 year old son for quite some time. At first I was highly skeptical! I thought, "Maybe for older kids who just need that little push. This will NOT work for my son who is completely oblivious to what's going on in his diaper!" I waited a couple of months to let life settle down. During this time he became more aware of his body and met all of the requirements in Teri's book.
Some reviewers complain about how much money you HAVE to invest and I just have to disagree. You CAN go all out, buy the most expensive doll and buy every single item on the recommended lists..or you can simplify things. I simplified our plan. I purchased a $12 "Lots to Love" doll from Wal~Mart and lots of stickers. We made our own chart up and had a nice supply of underwear on hand. I spent maybe $10 in snacks and had plenty left over to carry on through the week. You don't HAVE to do anything the book suggests, I went with the basic model and idea and we had a blast! My son was thrilled by his new baby, he was thrilled with a few new boardgames (which I would have bought anyways). He loved the attention and the games and all the books I read to him.
I didn't think my son would get into the roleplaying aspect, but he did! He fed his baby and showed his baby the potty and watched videos and read books with his baby. He named him George and he would say "Good Job George!" everytime George was successful.Read more ›
My daughter is 2yrs 9m old and MUST be fully potty-trained by September for preschool. I was down to the wire with her. I tried bribery (M&Ms), I tried the motivational calls that worked so well with my son (she could care less), I tried using the wetting doll like the Dr. Phil method says. NOTHING. I was at wits end. Since I have read books about every other stage (pregnancy, nursing, 1st yr), I gave in and bought this book after reading reviews of all the potty training books. THIS BOOK WORKS! Without it, my daughter would surely still be in diapers. It has been 14 days and she is dry!!!
I followed the book to the letter. It is A LOT of work -- BE PREPARED to be ON for 12 hours. I think, the decoration portion can be modified without any effect to the child. I went with the beach theme and made waves out of blue poster board, blew up a swan and hung fish from the ceiling. She loved it! The tough part was having the doll have a total of 10-12 accidents from 8am to 12pm (lunch). After lunch you are supposed to focus on the child. My daughter was not as interested in the doll having accidents as I had hoped and I thought I was doomed to fail. After lunch she took her nap. BEWARE OF NAPS! She woke up at 3:30pm!Read more ›
