Stress-Free Potty Training: A Commonsense Guide to Finding the Right Approach for Your Child
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 master the actual act right away. "Stress-Free Potty Training" takes the anxiety out of this challenging rite of passage. The book differentiates the common childhood personality types, providing easy techniques to suit kids who are: goal-oriented, sensory-oriented, internalising, impulsive and strong-willed. Parents will find much needed advice to help them identify what ideas will work for their child's temperament. This straight-talking guide enables readers to help any child make this important life transition free of worry, and in the way that's right for them.

Excellent advice for any situationJun 11, 2008
By M. Steinhaus
This book is great!! It offers specific, easy to follow advice based on your child's individual temperment... We started potty training before reading this book. It's our first child and I've been working on tips and advice from various sources... This book seems to put it all together... I've found myself in nearly exact situations this book has described-- and it definately offers some techniques I hadn't thought of or tried...
Basically, if you're not committed to one style or method --and why would you be, every child is different-- this is an excellent book with a wide variety of techniques, advice and tools to help make this experience as pleasant as can be for you and your little one!

I Wish I Had Read This Book a Year AgoMay 04, 2009
By Mother of Twins
This book gives great, sound advice that tells you how to tailor your potty training to your child's personality.
You first take a quiz to determine your child's personality type, then it gives you universal potty training techniques followed by techniques for each of the 5 personality types.
It teaches you ways to prepare your child for potty-training months before you actually think you'll go diaper-free, so read this early--when your child is around 12-18 months.
Just before I read this book, I started my 3rd attempt at potty-training my nearly 3 year old twin boys and was finally having some success. When I read it, a lot of the the tips it gave were the things I had already figured out after much trial and error (and frustration). If I had read this book a year ago, I think I would have saved myself much of that frustration.

Very Helpful InfoJul 27, 2008
By B. Smarsh
This book has really helped me with, even more than potty training my daughter (which worked!!), but alleviating my worries - I didn't want to put pressure on her, but I also needed to get her trained before she started school. I thought it would take all Summer, but it didn't!! Great advice, great stories. I highly recommend this book for first time, nervous parents.

Best. Book. Ever.Aug 20, 2009
By Blue-Eyed Baby Boy
Wow! This is a must-read and must-have for all parents potty training. I read 15 books on potty training as I prepared to potty train my son and this book was FABULOUS, the cream of the crop. It addresses the concept that children have different personalities and learning styles. As my husband and I took the quiz about our son we realized strong characteristics in him that made a difference in how we approached the potty. I would recommend it to everyone!! If you are potty training a boy, I would also recommend Potty Training Boys the Easy Way by Caroline Fertleman. Both books are quick, easy reads with practical, common sense approaches to potty training! You won't be disappointed!!

Entertaining but not realisticAug 12, 2010
The book had very good ideas, and I liked the fact that they try to teach you based on your childs personality type. According to the book my child is "Strong Willed" and it basically tells you that he will potty train himself on his own schedule and there is not really much you can do about it. As a mother of a 3 year old who has basically tried everything being told to sit back and wait wasnt very helpful for me. The book had good ideas and it may work for some but it was a waste of $20.00 for me.
