Meanwhile, I must say, I did enjoy this book. It is short, concise, and has easy steps to take. I was utterly shocked and appalled at this piece of information though:
"Do you know that the average age of toilet training has increased every single decade for the past sixty years? Here are some truly amazing statistics: On average, in the 1940s children began training at four or five months! In 1946, Dr. Spock published his famous child-rearing book that discussed waiting until children could sit up at seven to nine months old. At the time, this was a scandalous and shocking concept! In 1957, 92% of children were toilet trained by eighteen months. Human biology has not changed - just societal norms."
What!? She advocates starting at 18 months. Mo just turned 18 months last week so we're going to give it a go. I'll post updates here on MommyBeta. Wish me luck!
