Successful potty training begins with knowing your child's personality. Is your toddler frightened of the process, afraid even to go near the bathroom? Or does he or she seem to know when it's time to go, but can't quite make it there in time? Stress-Free Potty Training helps you identify the best ways to approach this process, depending on your child's temperament. The book distinguishes between common childhood personality types, providing easy techniques tailor-fit for your child, whether he or she is stubborn or willful, clinging to diapers, afraid to move on, or just a late-bloomer. You'll find out how to: determine your child's readiness to begin potty training, be a potty role model, gradually move the child past his or her existing comfort zone, without causing undue pressure, handle accidents and temporary setbacks.
Filled with straight talk and practical advice, this book helps you take the anxiety out of this important life transition, in the way that's right for your son or daughter. Book jacket.
