Girls mature more quickly than boys and so are usually ready to potty train earlier. However, they can also be more sensitive to the process as a whole. In Potty Training Girls, Dr Caroline Fertleman and Simone Cave provide a clear step-by-step guide, taking parents through preparation; introducing and encouraging your daughter to use the potty; troubleshooting and much more. This invaluable parenting guide also includes: - Checklists for both mental and physical signs that show your daughter is ready to potty train - Guidance on what kind of behaviour to expect and how to manage it - Sensitive advice if your daughter is a late starter or a 'rebel' Potty Training Girls ensures that parents, and their daughters, pass this important milestone calmly, without worry or stress, and shows that it can even be fun!
