“Straight up, parent tested, and funny to boot, Jamie gives you all the information you need.” —Amber Dusick, author of Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures
A proven six-step plan to help you toilet train your preschooler quickly and successfully, from potty-training expert, Pied Piper of Poop, and social worker Jamie Glowacki.
Worried about potty training? Let Jamie Glowacki, potty-training expert, show you how it’s done. Her 6-step, proven process to get your toddler out of diapers and onto the toilet has already worked for tens of thousands of kids and their parents. Here’s the good news: your child is probably ready to be potty trained EARLIER than you think (ideally, between 20–30 months), and it can be done FASTER than you expect (most kids get the basics in a few days—but Jamie’s got you covered even if it takes a little longer). If you’ve ever said to yourself:
** How do I know if my kid is ready?
** Why won’t my child poop in the potty?
** How do I avoid “potty power struggles”?
** How can I get their daycare provider on board?
** My kid was doing so well—why is he regressing?
** And what about nighttime?!
Oh Crap! Potty Training can solve all of these (and other) common issues. This isn’t theory, you’re not bribing with candy, and there are no gimmicks. This is real-world, from-the-trenches potty training information—all the questions and all the ANSWERS you need to do it once and be done with diapers for good.
Great Advice - Too Wordy
The steps for potty training were perfect for us! Great advice for how to tackle this monster of a parenting milestone. I do wish the book was more condensed and streamlined for a busy parent. It seems quite repetitive for the sake of a book. I would pay the same amount for less words that just gets to the point.
Great prose but….
Great prose but condescending and not rational I found. My child was ready to potty train at 3 and 1/2 although we tried to push it early
I love how blunt she is! She doesn’t lie a lot of the things she talks about did happen and she had the answers in this book. I both enjoyed how easy the book is to follow, read, and execute. We are still one month in but these twin boys are well on there way to success. They have minimal accidents. I did train both night time and daytime training at the same time and feel like she hit it on the head they did learn quite quickly because once diapers were gone completely it didn’t confuse them they just new we don’t do diapers anymore. I loved this book.
