Gina Ford Gets It Right

AdvantagesWell laid out and easy to understand routine

Disadvantages7 days doesnt take into account possible preparation stage

"Potty training is one of those inevitable events when you have children, sooner or later you have to do it. Christopher was my first child and I had no idea how to start potty training him. My mum was very old school in her approach and believed he should have started training at a year old, however he was a slow developer and wasn't even walking at that point, he certainly wasn't able to string together a sentence or tell me he needed to wee.

Potty Training in One Week

AdvantagesQuick to read, and it does seem to work .

DisadvantagesHard to follow the advice rigidly if you have a busy lifestyle, or older children.

"A very readable and enjoyable book. The book contains a list of signs that a toddler is ready to be trained; a stage-by-stage process to follow; a number of case-studies; a section on how to deal with special cases like twins, or particularly stubborn children; and finally a comprehensive series of question and answers. The advice seems very sensible. If followed to the letter, I'm sure the suggested process may well work with most children within ..." Read review
