Scared to Poop
By Kathleen M. Diehl
Finally, a step-by-step guide for parents undergoing the NIGHTMARE of a stool-withholding child! Understand the Pain-Fear-Avoidance cycle, and learn how to break free from it once and for all. REAL solutions for a REAL problem. This book answers the important questions: What causes stool withholding? What complications can develop? Which "laxative" treatments are safe? What about lifestyle factors? Do we need to put toilet training on hold? Stool withholding in children is a complex problem that deserves a complex approach. Your pediatrician may have advised you on what to "do" or what to "take," but many parents have no idea how to get their child to comply. "Scared to Poop: A Guide to Overcoming Constipation and Stool Withholding in Children" addresses all these factors: How to deal with a fussy eater, how to get your child to drink plain water, how to get your child to willingly take/swallow constipation treatment remedies, how to get your child to sit on the potty without fear, and so much MORE. "Scared to Poop" is the most comprehensive book on this topic on the market today. Backed by physician advice, personal experience, research and references.
