Review: Mommy, Are You Ready for Potty Training?! By Vesta Schneider

Review * Giveaway

Mommy, Are You Ready For Potty Training?!

Book Description: 
Potty training is a learning process for both a child and a parent and before you begin it is important to have a basis of understanding about the potty training. In this book, I will answer the most common questions and then provide simple, painless steps to teach your child to use the potty. Since not many parents have time to read long books, this book is short, nonsense-free and based upon real experience!

Book Review:
When I was asked if I was interested in reviewing this book I thought it came at a great time! My fourth child is getting to the point where potty training will probably happen in the near future.  I'd also never heard of a book that focuses on getting the parents ready to potty train. It was a new thing for me and I decided to give it a shot.

If you are a new parent that is especially concerned about potty training, or if you had your children quiet a few years apart and are feeling rusty and nervous, then I would say that this book is more geared toward you. But if you have potty trained a number of kids, the book probably isn't going to tell you anything you didn't already know.  That being said, reminders never hurt either; even if they aren't potty trained related.  I mean, "Do my actions make my child feel loved?" is something parents should ask themselves often.

I found the order of the book a bit ... odd, and I disagreed with the list of needed items and a few other things. However, every child is different, every family is different, and potty training one child will not be like potty training another.

I appreciated, not only the length of the book, but the "short version of the book" that was included as well. Just reading the short version won't get you anywhere, but if you've read the book in it's entirety, it is a good reference to go back and remind you of the basics.

If you are reading this because you are potty training, then let me wish you good luck for you and your child's efforts!
