For many parents and children, toilet training is a challenging process. Children can be resistant and maybe fearful. Parents can get very frustrated with the lack of progress and children can be very discouraged.

Annye Rothenberg, Ph.D., Child/Parent Psychologist has guided hundreds of families through their children's toilet training refusals. She captures the way children have been successful in the two stories she has written -- one on peeing and one on pooping. The first story is Going Peepee. Katie's parents say it's time to start going peepee in the toilet, but Katie doesn't want to stop playing to go. She has lots of accidents. With creative guidance from her parents, Katie starts to see all the advantages and decides she will go peepee every time in the toilet. In the second story, Going Poop, Ben doesn't like pooping in the toilet. He doesn't like the way his poop feels coming out. He figures that he can tighten his bottom every time and hopes to never have a poop again. But when it has to come out, he gets scared. His parents help him become brave enough to overcome his reluctance and be successful.

In addition, Dr. Rothenberg has provided a parenting guidance section that includes expert and insightful guidance on when and how to toilet-train your preschooler. It explains what is the child's view of toilet training. Learn the most age-appropriate tools to motivate youngsters who are uninterested, reluctant, and fearful. Specific advice shows parents how to help children with frequent peeing accidents and children who are resistant to pooping in the toilet. This manual will clear up conflicting advice, provide useful insights, and teach you the skills to guide reluctant youngsters toward toileting success.

I Like To Eat Treats also includes a section for parents providing valuable guidelines on how much and what kinds of food young children should eat, how to get children to want to eat healthy foods, and much more.

Parents struggle to figure out how to get their young children to do what they ask. It’s often difficult to understand how their preschoolers think and what rules they should have. Parents know they can’t just let their children do what they want when they want. They’re looking for better ways to get cooperation and trying to come up with reasonable and effective consequences. How strict or how lenient should they be? And preschoolers are naturally determined to say no to our rules and to challenge us.
