Before initiating potty or toilet training it is important that parents be comfortable with "potty talk." Most parents are uncomfortable talking about poop. They are also uncomfortable when their children talk about poop. Unfortunately, when families do not talk about poop, children are more likely to be slow to toilet train and to become constipated. My book, Softy the Poop: Helping Families Talk About Poop, addresses both of these potential problems by facilitating healthy parent-child conversations about poop. Toilet training is easier and constipation can be avoided if parents and children are comfortable talking about poop before toilet training begins.
