Teaching Toileting: Helping Youngsters
Who are Uninterested, Resistant, Fearful, and Even Angry
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. This unique book addresses the problems
youngsters have in getting toilet trained.
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.
