Editorial Reviews

Review

Library Journal, starred review
“To use two bad puns, just when you think the market for potty-training books is saturated, along comes a new one that is worth the price tag, even though it’s a little dry. Writing specifically about boys, pediatrician Fertleman (Whittington Hosp., UK) and health editor Cave present a concise plan in fewer than 120 pages, which ambitious moms can read during baby’s nap. It is simple and factual and does an excellent job of addressing common counter-arguments. Guides for determining if your son is ready and tips for preparation until he is (e.g., let him see himself peeing in the bath) are excellent. Overeager parents would do well to read about the role of the hormone vasopressin in bedwetting.”

Very useful tips and suggestions.

This still gives the child the chance to say no if they really don't want to but doesn't invite them to say no just because it's their favorite word.

I read the book from cover to cover, then decided to implement the process.

YAY!! Finally, a book devoted entirely to helping moms of boys that are potty training!! This book is fabulous! It's a quick, easy read pointing out practical solutions and common sense approaches to potty training boys. I would recommend it to everyone!! I read 15 books in preparation and this was stellar! It's a must-read and a must-have. It suggests teaching boys in "Sessions" rather than the Potty-Training-In-One-Day idea that RARELY works for boys. The 'Sessions' idea was definitely the key to teaching my son in a happy, relaxed environment. I am SO SO SO SO happy I read this book and am telling everyone about it!! (I would also recommend The Stress-Free Potty Training by Sara Au. It's also FABULOUS!!!)

We had gotten very frustrated with our 3 1/2 year old who seemed completely uninterested in potty training. He was obviously ready in all respects except motivation. It just wasn't as hard with his two older sisters who were potty trained easily at about 2 1/2. But after following the guidance in this book, he was completely independently going on the toilet in week. With the exception of a night-time pull-up, we are diaper free!

A few things really rubbed me the wrong way about this book.
1. First of all, I agree with other reviewers' comments about the inaccurate and unhelpful sexist comments in the book. Every child has their own personality and not all boys lack common sense, just as not all girls have common sense. The sexist slant is pervasive throughout the book and shapes the advicee given based on the authors' assumptions.
2. The other problem that I have with this book is that it is (in my opinion) biased against anyone who does start potty training before 3 years old. It is fine that the book is accepting of late potty trainers and I'm sure that it is reassuring to a lot of parents out there that they are not alone and not too late. However, the book goes too far and looks down at those who start earlier as well as those who have employed elimination communication. The book states that "until recently it was fashionable to get babies out of diapers as young as possible." The fact that they call it "fashionable" for those parents who have worked hard to potty train their children earlier, and to no detriment of the child is offensive. In fact, I think that the term "fashionable" applies better to the current trend of later and later potty training. The authors state that "if you don't rush it, potty training will actually take less time in the long run" and "even if you do manage to potty train your son early in his second year, he's then more likely to have a setback... than if you'd waited..." but they do not have any evidence or cite any studies to support these statements. They are simply thrown out there as if they were fact.

I read several books on potty training (incl. potty training in a day) and this one was by far the best one: easy to read, practical tips throughout. I just love the approach of training in sessions, it totally worked for my little guy! And it was easy to accomplish, no power struggle at all -- I did wait until he was not only ready but also interested and motivated!

I started the potty training process shortly after my son turned two. Two weeks before his third birthday, he was STILL in diapers. I had read several potty training books, including "The No Cry Potty Training Solution." I took advice from several family members and even tried the "cold turkey" method, which involved just putting my son in big boy underwear and hoping he would eventually come to realize when he had to go. No such luck. Not only was my son uninterested in using the potty, it didn't even bother him when his diapers or underwear were wet. I tried giving him stickers and chocolates to use the potty, but he would just yell "I don't want to use the potty!" I came across "Potty Training Boys the Easy Way" while searching on Amazon. The great reviews quickly prompted me to order the book and give it a try. I read the book from cover to cover, then decided to implement the process. The day I put my son in regular underwear, he used the potty on his own. There he was, sitting in the living room, watching his favorite movie, when he stood up and announced "I need to pee." He walked over to the potty, pulled down his underwear, and did his business. It was like the clouds parted and angels began to sing. I was floored. From then on, the underwear "sessions" got longer and longer. He had a couple of accidents, but that was to be expected. Soon, he was wearing nothing but underwear at home. No more diapers or pull-ups, except at night. Finally, I decided it was time for him to go to preschool in underwear. The first day, I packed six extra outfits and underwear for him, certain he would have an accident while at school. I was shocked when I picked him up and saw him in the same outfit I had dressed him in that morning. Success! That was a month ago.Read more ›

My almost 3 and a half year old son has been impossible to train. We had tried everything. Leaving him naked for a week and a half, sticker charts, candy, timers, The Potty Boot Camp (which worked for a couple of my friends), you name it we tried it, and our son just simply would not potty train, and ended up holding #2 in the process, which is so miserable on everyone. Finally, I found this book and in less than 2 weeks, our son is potty trained. I read the book and thought "really this is all we have to do" and sure enough. It worked on the child I was certain would be in diapers or pull ups for the rest of his life!
