About the Book



What is the right approach to potty-train your child? Stress-Free Potty Training recognizes that every child is different.

Book Synopsis



This helpful guide takes the stress out of this challenging rite of passage, giving parents much-needed advice to help them identify what approach will work for their child's temperament.

No two children experience the toilet-training process in exactly the same way. While some kids might be afraid to even go near the bathroom, others may know when to go...but still never seem to make it there in time.

In Stress-Free Potty Training, mother and journalist Sara Au and neuropsychologist Peter Stavinoha shows you how to:

  • determine a child's readiness to begin potty training
  • gradually move children past their existing comfort zone, without causing undue pressure
  • handle accidents and temporary setbacks

This straight-talking guide enables you to help every child make this important life transition free of worry and in the way that's right for him or her.

Stress-Free Potty Training distinguishes between common childhood personality types, providing easy techniques tailor-fit for all kinds of kids, whether they're stubborn or willful, clinging to diapers, afraid to move on, or just late-bloomers.



From the Back Cover



"Rather than taking a 'one size fits all' approach to potty training, the authors recognize the importance of navigating this milestone with the best tools to fit each child's individual temperament."

-- Kristy S. Hagar, Ph.D., clinical child psychologist and co-author of Seven Steps to Help Your Child Worry Less

"A guide to potty training that can lead to better parenting? By exploring dominant personality traits and encouraging parents to understand their own goals and desires, the authors of Stress-Free Potty Training teach parents the art of becoming better problem solvers and advocates for their children."

-- Jackie Carroll, founder of the Orlando Adoption Network; adoption advocate and parent of five

Filled with straight talk and practical advice, the second edition of Stress-Free Potty Training takes the anxiety out of this important life transition, helping you identify what approach will be most compatible with your child's temperament. Starting with a simple quiz, the book provides easy techniques tailor-fit for all kinds of kids, whether they're stubborn or willful, clinging to diapers, afraid to move on, or just late bloomers. The book shows you how to:

Determine your child's readiness to begin potty training - Build on each success by gradually moving your child past his or her existing comfort zone (without adding undue pressure) - Be a positive potty role model - Handle accidents and temporary setbacks - And more

Fully revised, the second edition includes brand new "Universal Strategies" . . . updated techniques for overcoming the common challenges and obstacles you're likely to face with your child . . . ways to utilize the latest apps and websites that can be helpful during training . . . pitfalls to avoid on social media . . . and up-to-the-minute guidance on how to deal with interruptions and problems throughout the process.

This encouraging and practical guide helps you design a path around your own child's needs, allowing you to say goodbye to diapers . . . with as little stress as possible.
