Potty Training for Dummies - General Potty Training Book
If you could remember your own potty training, you�d probably recall a time filled with anxiety and glee, frustration and a sense of accomplishment, triumphal joy and shamed remorse. You�d remember wanting so much to make mommy and daddy happy, and at the same time to make them pay for being so darned unreasonable. And you�d recall feeling incredibly grown up once you got it right. Maybe if we could remember our own potty training, it wouldn�t be so tough when it came our turn to be the trainers. But as it is, most of us feel like we can use all the expert advice and guidance we can get.
Potty Training For Dummies - Potty Training Book is your total guide to the mother of all toddler challenges. Packed with painless solutions and lots of stress-reducing humor, it helps you help your little pooper make a smooth and trauma-free transition from diapers to potty. You�ll discover how to:
- Read the signs that your tot is ready
- Motivate your toddler to want to give up diapers
- Kick off potty training on the right foot

This book has a lot of super information in it, but what it lacks is organization. I kept thinking "but didn't I already read that?" because it repeats the information in several different ways and places.
I would have rather had the book keep every thought, issue and subject distinguishable and not so cross-referenced. It made it difficult to look up an exact issue I was dealing with, and I would lose track of where I was.
We have been working on potty training with our 2 1/2 year old for two months now, and I am now looking for a more substantial book. The one thing I have learned is PATIENCE.
