t’s easy to feel overwhelmed, nervous and uncertain when you start thinking about toilet training, it’s one of the big three that we as parents worry about – eating, sleeping and toilet training.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
My new book provides a staged process. This evidence-based approach steps through – modelling, exploring, training and automating. Detailing each stage, pinpointing the window of opportunity, identifying readiness, outlining where your child is at and how you can help.
We smash through myths and cut through opinions – did you know there is no evidence to support the myth that once you take a nappy off you have to keep it off or the child becomes confused or forgets. What a relief!
We also cover troubleshooting issues which may be more medically based rather than about toilet training and explore the ‘big’ ones – constipation and night wetting My book will be back from the publishers in December and will sell for AUD$29.95. I have decided to offer it for sale at a pre-release price of AUD$19.95 plus postage.
It would also be great if you could share this with parents who may be needing some help now or in the future. Thank you so much for your support.
