Simply Awesome 2 décembre 2003
Par C. T. Mikesell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
The Azrin-Foxx toilet-training method really works. For a third of the price of a case of Huggies from Costco, you can get rid of diapers forever.

I used this book's method to potty-train my son three months ago. We spent from 9am to 2pm following the procedures outlined in the book, but he really had it down by noon. He had four accidents in the first week and a half, and none since. If I had been mindful of how long it had been since he last went to the bathroom, a couple of those accidents could have been avoided, but making the switch from changing diapers after the fact to a more proactive approach can take parents a little while too. I was concerned about putting him in Pull-Ups at bedtime, thinking they might feel enough like diapers that he'd revert to pre-training days, but it hasn't been a problem.

This book was written in the 1970's - those troubling times when moms were homemakers instead of fighter-pilots - and the text reflects the sensibilities of the era. The book also makes the suggestion that if bread-winning dad isn't on board with the process that *he* take over the diaper-changing responsibilities and see how quickly he changes his mind. The gender stratification of the day is obvious, but as a dad who trained his son (and *not* as a penalty for not being with the program) I didn't find the cultural anachronisms too off-putting or annoying. The book was written with a very academic tone - not surprising, considering the university research backgrounds of the authors - so it's not a quick and easy read. Because it is primarily a research document, rewriting it to reflect modern sensibilities really wouldn't enhance it.

One caveat: The book is written for training children with well-developed cognitive abilities and motor skills (the book recommends about 2-1/2 for girls, 3 for boys). If you need to train your child at a younger age, this book may not work for you - because children develop at different rates, the book gives has a readiness test to help you evaluate if your child has the skills necessary to successfully complete the training.

When your child is ready for potty-training, start with this book's method. If you provide the recommended followthrough this will likely be the last book on the subject you'll ever need.

not for all mothers 11 janvier 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
This book is for organized and motivated mothers who want to potty train quickly. In a city apartment with no yard, no outdoor play space, and carpet everywhere except the bathroom and small kitchen, and having a low tolerance for mess, I felt I simply could not stand the "let them run around bare for a few weeks until they get it" method. So I tried this one.
It took a couple of months to gather up all the supplies, but even so, the night before training day, as I was reviewing the method, I realized that the Doll-that-Wets did not have two pairs of underpants, as needed, so that she could change into dry ones - so I did some late night sewing.
However all the preparation paid off. After 4 hours my 33-month old son (who had never sat on a potty before), could (and did) pull down his pants by himself, urinate, pull up his pants, dump the pot, flush, wash his hands, and dry his hands.
He was having such a great time with pottying, that that evening he kept excusing himself every 5 minutes to run to the potty, and was sometimes mildly disappointed when no pee came out.
After day three the novely wore off, and he is now (as of day 5) figuring out how long he can wait before going to the potty.
We have had one accident per day - but I think that this is because, after almost 3 years of disposable diapers, he is still learning how to recognize when he needs to go.
A few comments if you plan to try the method yourself.
1) Azrin and Foxx do say that if you child has a problem with general stubborness ("he understands what you have said, but he refuses to carry out your instructions") then "until this general stubbornness is overcome, you should not attempt to toilet train."
2) Azrin and Foxx also say "You may consider your child to be trained when he walks to the potty chair for the first time without a reminder and completes the entire toileting experience without the need for instructions or guidance." And that your child should continue to wear oversized training pants until "he has remained dry for several days". So realistically, even when this method works as advertized, you need to plan for not only one day for intense training, but a few days of staying at home or only going places where your child's potty will be readily available and where accidents will not be hard to handle. (We have visited friends, but have taken the potty with us.)
3) My son loves novelty and loves the idea of being grown up, so as additional motivators I waited until Training Day to (a) get out the potty (b) get out the dolly (c) remove the baby gate from the bathroom door to allow him access to the bathroom and(d) ever let him wash his own hands by himself in the bathroom
4) Azrin and Foxx's method neglects handwashing. By putting a stool at the bathroom sink, I made it possible for my son to wash his hands independently, and added this to the potty routine, right after toilet flushing.
5) I allerted Grandparents and a few good friends in advance, so that when we called them on Training Day, they were ready with lavish praise.
6) When my son's interest flagged partly through training, and I was running out of more positive things to say about pottying, I pulled out a potty book he had never seen before (he loves books) to give him a little break, while not really venturing off the subject of pottying.
7) I waited until after my son had trained the doll to take him out of diapers and put him in training pants, so that he would not have any accidents before he knew what to do.
8) It was very hard to find a simple doll-that-wets. I ended up buying a Potty Dotty. First I clipped the wires to the speaker to get rid of the annoying chatter. Then I put a magnet inside her leg so that she would pee on my son's potty, and not just on her own. With those modifications a fancy electronic doll has been reduced to one that can be filled with water with the switch in the off position, then with the switch in the on position, pees approx 10 seconds after you poke her bottle in her mouth.
HOWEVER: Don't feel you have to potty train this way if you don't want to. My sister-in-law took a look at the book, and her reaction can be summed up as "You gotta be kidding.". She has preferred a much more laid back gradualist approach that would have driven me bonkers.
CAVEAT: I realize even if a method is "guarranteed to work for all children" there will still be some for which it doesn't work. (For us, the issue was sleeping through the night - nothing we tried worked for that - and our son did not sleep through the night until age two.) So if this does not work for you then you have my sympathy, but unfortunately no helpful advice.

It really works and is very positive 30 juin 2000
Par Rachel Harris - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
I was skeptical about rather this book would work. My mother used it to toilet train me and my sister back in the '70's and recommended it highly. I tried training the traditional way first. Following a suggestion in a magazine, I let my 2 year, 9 month old son run around the house naked so he could get to the potty unencumbered. He kept peeing on the floor and crying. Eventually, when I asked him where he would pee, he said "on the floor." This is when I decided to use the book. I had some trouble getting my son to pay attention to me and follow instructions, because he is very stubborn. He is not trained as well as the boy in book (he needs to be taken to the potty), but he has not had an accident in three days (I trained him six days ago). On reading the book, you may feel that the approach is cruel, as a reviewer I read earlier on the site did. However, you must be aware that everything is done in a positive way, the emphasis is on teaching your child, not humiliating them. Also, because the training process is so rapid, your child is spared the continued humiliation of having accidents, especially in public (and you are too). It took me four hours to train my son. Since then, he has been genuinely more happy and self assured. Our relationship has improved immensely as well. This book taught me that I can be my son's teacher and he can learn from me. It also taught me how to improve my interactions with him by following the suggestions for making sure he listens to and follows through on my instructions. This has significantly decreased the times I get frustrated with him or yell at him for things unrelated to toilet training. This book was written to end the humiliation that most children go through before they are completely toilet trained. It is backed by research. It was originally designed for retarded children, and can be successfully used on children with IQ's as low as 30. I am a licensed master social worker, and I would not hesitate to recommend this book to anyone, including my clients.

Read the reviews before you begin to train! 30 juillet 2003
Par jaylake - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
2008 UPDATE TO THIS REVIEW: I have now used this method successfully with FIVE of my children. Two were three and three were 2 1/2 years old. It has been a great blessing for our family.
I found reading all the reviews on this book to be very helpful on my training day.

MY STORY: I intended to do this method from the beginning but waited until the timing was best for our family. My daughter showed readiness signs at 2 1/2 but it was best for us to wait until she was three as I was nursing the baby and we were moving. As the book warned, I never attempted any toilet training method with my daughter until the Big Training Day. My husband got everyone out of the house for the day, and after four hours of training she ran to the potty, pulled her pants down and peed in the potty all by herself! The rest of the day she continued to do so and she has not been in diapers since. I was petrified about going out in public, and took about six changes of clothes with me, but we have not had one accident in public. I take the potty seat that fits on top of a toilet with me and she tells me "Tee-Tee Potty!" when she needs to go. It is fantastic to have a child who INDEPENDENTLY toilets herself. I added hand-washing into the training as well.

WARNINGS: I say the following just so you will be better prepared for what may be ahead for you:

I did not realize how emotionally difficult the training would be for ME! She was fine during training, loving all the snacks and books I let her read. But I was about to pull my hair out sitting for four hours trying to "talk potty" and waiting. It was very, very hard to do!

Also, I was not prepared for the several accidents that followed the next few days. There were four the first day after training and then three and and then two accidents the next few days. After the first week, we had about one accident per week for several weeks and then all accidents ended. The drills running back and forth and practicing definitely work and are worth doing, but I had no idea how emotionally difficult and physically exhausting it would be for me. She would laugh half the time and cry half the time and I would be near tears and in a sweat after each drill.

Pooping in the potty took her several days to learn--she just held it and I ended up buying a few little dollar store presents and told her she would get to open them when she pooped in the potty. It worked! I believe it helps to know what things make your child happy and use it as a reward for a newly acquired skill.

Staying dry at night and during naps was not a problem--just a rare accident--until we went on vacation. She never had an accident on vacation but seemed to relapse at night once we got home. It took a couple of weeks after we returned for her to stay dry while sleeping again.

I loved this method and heartily recommend it to parents who agree with what are considered by many to be "tough" parenting methods. However, I would not suggest it to my friends who prefer child-centered parenting methods. It is not fun at first and requires strict observance to drills for a short time. But then the short-term hard work is over and you have a happy, independent kid who toilets herself without any assistance from you!

EASY is not part of the title... 9 avril 2007
Par Jennifer Rader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
After trying pretty much anything and everything to get my son trained, over the course of years(!), I consulted a child psychologist, who recommended this book. My son was a normal kid, not overly or especially stubborn, but he just did not care if he was wet or dirty. At age 4 and him still untrained, I was desperate.

I got the book, read through it quickly. Read it again. And again. Tested my son with the readiness tests. He did great with physical readiness (duh...he was 4!), but cooperatively, he didn't pass. So we spent a few weeks using the techniques in the book to enhance cooperation until he consistently passed that readiness test.

I blocked off a weekend to do the training. It was going to work. It had to work. I won't say I was the best at following the instructions, but after a gruelling, longest-weekend-of-my-life weekend, he was trained. He had some accidents afterward, but they were few and far between. Other than at night, we never went back to diapers.

The book suggests that nighttime dryness often follows shortly after daytime dryness, but with my son, it took some years still. As he gained dexterity, we added doing laundry to the natural consequence of night time wetness, and that probably solve the problem better than anything. He got very tired of doing laundry at 6am. (I always helped and never scolded, but made it clear that since it was his body and his sheets, he was responsible for both. To me, this method is all about shifting responsibility for toileting from the parent to the child.)

Anyway, he's 14 now. It's been 10 years and I still hail this book as the only method that worked after trying pretty much everything else. When he was 9, his little sister was born, and I never got a chance to try this book out on her. She loved going potty and figured it out during the introduction stage, where we were just letting her get to know what pottying was about. She was daytime dry within weeks and is now night time dry (she's not quite 5 now).

I think my big tips with this book are:

* Take it with a grain of salt. Try to understand the concepts behind the instructions, and adapt them to your child. Yes, it's not "modern", but there is a lot of wisdom to be had. You will have to edit as you read. Just make sure you work at understanding the point of each suggestion. I used very wated down juice and straight water because that's what my son liked. I didn't like what soda did to his cooperation level, so I didn't include it. That sort of thing. I also reduced the practice repetition to two or three times instead of 10. I couldn't find a peeing doll, so I made do with a regular one and sprinkled the accident. I never yelled NO, but understood the point to be distraction, not shaming. He didn't like having to change out of his clothes himself, but did very well with positive reinforcement for the little victories -- putting his hands on his waistband, pulling down, stepping out. I also didn't use a potty chair. I used a stepstool with a regular toilet figuring that potty chairs would not be available anywhere but at home.

* Don't take the readiness tests lightly. Make sure your child can pass them consistently. Not just once, but multiple times over a period of time. You want to make sure the kid is really ready. I like what one of the other reviewers did -- she spent weeks preceding "priming" the child by talking about pottying, reading related books, and watching related videos.

* Remember that EASY is not part of the title. It may be fast, but it isn't easy.

* Remember that this too shall pass. I had a horrible time with my son, but when I was tempted to give in to frustration and scream, I reminded myself that he would not be in diapers when he was 18. I was certain he would figure it out before then. For some reason, this gave me more patience for the moment, I could smile and take a deep breath and have another go.

As this book pre-dates automatic-flush toilets, it has no solution for children who become afraid of them. My daughter was terrified of them after one flushed while she was still going. To fix this, I began putting my hand over the sensor of such toilets while she went. This keeps it from flushing and puts me close enough to her that she isn't scared. I'm petite, so I can still do this in regular stalls, but larger women may need to use the handicapped stall to make this work.

Overall, I recommend the book highly, but caution that if, after reading it, you're not comfortable with the method in theory, then definitely don't attempt it. Use something that better suits your family values.
