Your voice gets louder and LOUDER.” But yelling hurts people’s ears and feelings. Children learn that they can quiet their voice and use their words to talk about a problem. “Think before you yell, and use your words well!” Includes a special section for parents and caregivers with activities and discussion starters.

The Kitten Who Wants to Say Goodbye to Diapers Book Review:

What is different about this children's toilet training book? It uses language patterns and proven, powerful psychological techniques that really get results. Motivation is the key to toilet training. This story is designed to be gently persuasive on both the conscious and unconscious levels. It can be be read aloud to children by an older person, and is intended as an aid to any potty-training method. The psychological techniques woven into this tale can make training quicker and easier. Simple rhyming verses add an extra element of fun. Many concepts are common to all potty-training methods. They are based on motivations that are natural in all healthy children. These include: * Imitation - seeing a person or a 'drink and wet' doll using a toilet or potty and wanting to copy. * Wanting to be independent and feel like a grown- up * Peer pressure - seeing siblings or other toddlers successfully using the potty * Wanting to be praiseworthy * Wanting to feel dry * Wanting to feel clean To help children learn, the story is interactive. You can read out questions for the child to answer, and you can ask the child to point to images on the pages. Parents, relax! Just read the story to your little ones and enjoy helping them learn.
