Enhance the quality and pace of language development. Toilet training is an important developmental milestone for children, and it also can be one of the greatest challenges for parents.

This new AAP handbook cuts through the confusion to provide practical information, proven techniques, and expert advice to ensure the best toilet-training experience for children and parents-must reading for every new parent, from the organization representing the nation's finest pediatricians. A complete guide to every phase of the toilet-training process.
