Are boys harder to potty train? The answer is no! --- Tips & Tricks for Potty Training Boys
Boys are not harder to potty train!
While studies show that boys commonly potty train later than girls, it does not mean that boys have a harder time with the process (or that you will either!).And the difference in time is a matter of days or months, not years.
With both boys and girls, it’s more important to focus on your child’s developmental progress than on their age.
After all, each child is different and will achieve potty training in their own time.
To Sit or Stand
During the early stages of potty training, have your boy pee while sitting on the potty. Why? To keep things simple by teaching him to sit for both urination and bowel movements.
Once your child masters sitting on the potty, you can begin to teach him how to pee standing if you’re using a potty chair. However, there’s no rush with this. He can pee sitting for as long as he likes.
When you decide to teach your son to urinate while standing, he may enjoy having toilet targets like Cheerios so that he has something to aim for when going potty.
You can also use food coloring so that your child can see what color the water turns when their pee makes it into the toilet!
"Dr. Jazmine has outdone herself with this potty training book. As a mother of two-year-old twins, I have been wringing my hands at the idea of potty training both of them. Her book not only provides effective and doable ways to potty train, but also how to CONNECT with and PRAISE your children while doing it. Every time I thought ‘I wonder if she’s going to cover that?’ she does! I cannot recommend this book enough for parents who are beginning their potty training journey." —Dr. Ashley Forrest, Clinical Psychologist
“Not quite sure how to proceed with potty training? Look no further. Dr. Jazmine breaks down the daunting process of potty training into fun, manageable, and evidence-based steps for first-time parents. She explores common myths and provides solutions to many barriers to potty training, for children and parents alike. She encourages parents to bond with their child without the pressure of perfection. Enjoy the adventure!” —Dr. Anna Washington, Clinical Psychologist
“Dr. Jazmine’s guide to potty training is a must read for first-time parents. It breaks down the preparation for this event effortlessly. Definitely an essential read for parents that will help turn the fear of such a difficult task into an immediate confidence booster! This guide is at the top of my list for resources I will use in my own professional work with parents.” —Dr. Vernessa Roberts, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Oh Crap! was my first read on the topic and I immediately felt it was more about laughs than creating confidence in parents/caregivers. We started this just ten days before my daughter started preschool and we are now two weeks into school and she’s only had one *minor* accident at school. Thank you Dr. Jazmine!
I read both so you don’t have to!
TL;DR: First Time Parents Guide is the clear winner!
Both use the same basic so-called boot camp method: spend a soul-sucking weekend (ideally 3 day weekend), with your toddler completely bottomless, watch them like a hawk, prompt them to sit on the toilet with some sort of frequency (20-30 min) or if they’re showing any cues of peeing and pooping. The instructions for you as the caregiver progress from there.
Where Dr Jazmine’s book stands out is that the method utilizes the positive parenting approach which as a behavioral therapist myself I know is evidence based for getting outcomes in behavior change.
Oh Crap subtly shades positive parenting and also encourages the use of negative consequences for accidents once you feel your child has the hang of toilet training (please don’t do this. For starters it’s highly subjective when you think your kid knows their own cues to use the toilet and also research clearly shows positive reinforcement is the most successful way to get behavior change or to learn a new skill.)
Oh Crap suggests doing overnight training (and includes some scary comments about bladder atrophy that I’m sure are not accurate) at the same time as daytime training (as in set alarms at 2am & 5am and pick up your dead weight mostly asleep toddler’s body onto the toilet - it’s a no for me!) whereas Dr Jazmine cites actual evidence that doing both simultaneously is not necessary nor even developmentally appropriate.
Dr Jazmine’s book is also much shorter and has a page of chapter highlights at the end of each chapter with key take aways/points.
My one point of contention is that Dr Jazmine recommends using food as a reward which as an eating disorders therapist I disagree with and also she recommends foods that are choking hazards for kids under 4 such as popcorn and chips.
Some of you reading this do not care about food as rewards and feel ok with chips as a snack in which case I say to you: Dr Jazmine’s book, start to finish, is perfect for you!
For everyone else: Dr Jazmine’s book is perfect for you! 10/10 would recommend!

Then I found Dr Jazmine and saw her book. It was a serious game changer. Not only does she outline the readiness of your child, your must haves, and the basic process, but she also gives you so many tools for communication. Without these tips I don't think I couldv'e done it. I was able to learn how to phrase things and how to give my child the control he needed throughout the process. Now almost a month later I continue to use her communication tools and our boy has been doing great! I recommend this book to everyone considering potty training!
