About this item

The time-tested, gentle, and successful method that introduces children to potty training as early as six months

While parents around the world successfully potty train their children well before preschool age, in the United States, we've moved away from this early introduction. However, there's no evidence that later is better--in fact, there's even significant reason to believe that later can be detrimental.

Written by a respected child psychologist, Early-Start Potty Training shows why the early-start method is preferable to the commonly used readiness method. Waiting until children show signs of readiness can hold them back from preschool, cost a fortune in diapers, and lead to health problems. The early-start method avoids these concerns by starting the process of training as early as six months old.

This easy-to-follow program provides you with:

  • Time-tested training tips for introducing toddlers--and even infants--to the potty
  • Methods for combating common problems of training delay
  • A troubleshooting plan for moving toddlers from diapers to potty independence
  • Hints on how to overcome accidents and build confidence in children
The psychologist-author of The Everything Potty Training Book shares an effective, gentle programs that introduces children as young as six months to potty training, explaining what makes the early-start method more efficient that the readiness method and offering advice on combating common problems, overcoming accidents, building confidence, and more. Original. 15,000 first printing.

I read this book from cover to cover in two days and found it very helpful. Prior to the marketing of disposable diapers in the 1960's, most American children were potty trained by age 2. It makes a strong case that children can be potty trained much sooner, and that the process is easier if you sta...see moreof the reviewer's review
