Author(s): Linda Sonna
Drawing on scientific studies, this book debunks the myth that it is better to start potty training after age two and gives a plan to be finished with diapers before a child's second birthday. It explores the many drawbacks of the "readiness" method, including the emotional, financial, and health repercussions of waiting too long.
