Description
If you could remember your own potty training, you'd probably recall a time filled with anxiety and glee, frustration and a sense of accomplishment, triumphal joy and shamed remorse. You'd remember wanting so much to make mommy and daddy happy, and at the same time to make them pay for being so darned unreasonable. And you'd recall feeling incredibly grown up once you got it right. Maybe if we could remember our own potty training, it wouldn't be so tough when it came our turn to be the trainers. But as it is, most of us feel like we can use all the expert advice and guidance we can get.

Potty Training For Dummies is your total guide to the mother of all toddler challenges. Packed with painless solutions and lots of stress-reducing humor, it helps you help your little pooper make a smooth and trauma-free transition from diapers to potty. You'll discover how to:

Read the signs that your tot is ready Motivate your toddler to want to give up diapers Kick off potty training on the right foot Foster a team approach Deal with setbacks and pee and poop pranks Make potty training a loving game rather than a maddening ordeal

Mother and daughter team, Diane Stafford and Jennifer Shoquist, MD separate potty-training fact from fiction and tell you what to expect, what equipment you'll need, and how to set the stage for the big event. They offer expert advice on how to:

Choose the right time Use a doll to help model behavior Say the right things the right way Reinforce success with praise and rewards Switch to training pants Get support from relatives Cope with special cases Train kids with disabilities

And they offer this guarantee: "If your child is still in diapers when he makes the football team or gets her college degree, you can send him or her off to us for a weekend remedial course--and ask for a refund of the cost of this book."
