The No-Cry Potty Training Solution

“Having Elizabeth Pantley at your side is the best parenting tool available. Not only is her advice effective, it most importantly, empowers parents. By creating a step-by-step potty training solution she simplifies a daunting task for parents.”

An excellent guide for a successful toilet-training experience.

Pantley, mother of four and author of the child-rearing classic, The No-Cry Sleep Solution, takes on the difficult issue of how to toilet-train your child with minimal stress and drama. She guides parents through every step of the process, beginning with a very thorough “Readiness Quiz,” through issues like bed-wetting and hand-washing. The author—whose methods have been tested by actual families—provides countless creative strategies for dealing with the typical fussiness, restlessness, reluctance and even fear children experience as they graduate from diapers. She offers advice on how to choose a potty chair or seat, as well as how to handle the father-daughter public restroom dilemma. Parent-child empathy is of great importance here, and Pantley’s guidance and expertise will help parents potty-train gently and effectively, keeping their frustration in check.

Any parent who thinks their child is ready to be potty-trained should make this book their first stop.

Kirkus Review


“She’s done it again! Enough information to fill an encyclopedia but presented in a pocket book. Elizabeth Pantley presents the information that parents need on potty training in her inimitable way – realistic, entertaining, fact-filled, un-preachy but above all gentle. Never before have I seen such great pictures of tots on pots – they tell the story too!”

“One of the things I love most about Elizabeth Pantley’s books is that she always offers a range of practical and realistic options from which you can use those best suited to your situation, family, and child’s individual needs. Her trade-mark gentle approach is carried through to this book, as always showing her love and respect of children and recognition that each child is a unique individual. The No-Cry Potty Training Solution is set out in an easy to read manner from a ‘jump-start’ of initial steps in preparing both yourself and your child for the journey, through to potty independence.”

“Elizabeth Pantley offers parents practical and creative solutions to common parenting questions. In the No-Cry Potty Training Solution, Pantley provides the reader with simple guidelines based on experience and success. As a mother of six children I can appreciate her perspective and contributions.
