Children’s wellness is important to every parent.  Children thrive when they are well emotionally, mentally, physically, socially and spiritually.  Children and adolescents have needs that are unique to adults.  Thus, they should be treated with utmost care and respect.  At Cora’s Healthy Family we value children and their unique and vibrant contribution to the world.  What a blessing that children exist.  Let’s work together to keep our children well and engaged in the good things in life!

Calm Before Work Chaos: Master Your Morning Routine!

Are you a working parent or a working set of parents, with young or school-age children?

Are mornings predictably chaotic for you?

Do you feel stressed, anxious and uptight trying to get out the door on time?

If you answered yes, then you need to know you are NOT alone!  Work-day/school-day mornings tend to be one of the most challenging times for families, yet it’s rarely talked about.

Why is that?

There are some obvious reasons why mornings are challenging, and then some less obvious ones.  First of all, mornings tend to be frenetic!  We get up, have breakfast, get dressed, pack lunches, complete last minute tasks–all under time-pressures.   Furthermore, kids and parents may still be tired, or have low blood sugar from the night before.

However, the most overwhelming and least talked about reason is that the hectic-pace and task-focused realities of mornings make authentic connection between parents and child hit and miss at best.  At worst, there is conflict, irritation, frustration and disharmony.

Most parents assume that this is normal; that morning disconnection is a natural part of life.  Although it may be normal in our modern, Western cultures, it’s far from beneficial.  In fact, it can be emotionally harmful for children to develop predictable times of disconnect with their parents.

“I have lots to do,” parents rightfully say to themselves.  “My child doesn’t get it that I have important places to go and important things to do.”

While that is entirely true, children and youth have a primary need that has been identified in developmental and attachment literature that sadly gets missed when we focus on tasks rather than our children.  That need is healthy emotional attachment.  Mornings are a key times when parents focus on responsibilities while the emotional needs of children get left behind.

This surprises some parents.  You might be thinking, “Yes, but my kid knows that I love him.  His emotions are fine–I think”.  Or, “Emotional needs?  What’s the big deal?  I feed and clothe her, take her to sports and music.  She’s got what she needs.”

Food, clothing, a safe home, leisure and recreation are all important for children.  However, what the pertinent literature  points to more than ever in recent times, is the unparalleled value of a deep and abiding connection or bond between a parent and their child.  This is the vital element for building an emotionally healthy, resilient child who can tackle the curve balls life throws at him or her with relative ease.

Dr. Gordon Neufeld, attachment and developmental expert has gone so far as to say, “Parents are more important than peers.”   The reason is that vibrant attachments between parents and children supersede early independence, becoming proficient in a sport, or being the top of the child’s grade 3 class.

Brain science has demonstrated that for children to have the necessary building blocks to become emotionally and socially mature and responsive as they age, a consistent and secure bond with their primary caregivers is essential.

While I am certain there is no parent who doesn’t want to be an excellent attachment figure, there are subtle cultural norms that unknowingly get in the way of healthy bonds.  The first norm is distracted business.  The second is the mistaken notion that an emotional connection with our kids is not as important as all the tangible stuff and valuable opportunities we offer our kids.

Both notions are dead wrong!  Children need us as parents connected in the emotional realm more than almost anything else next to physical safety.

Children need parents to be:

  • Consistently aware and responsive to their needs
  • Dependably empathetic to their emotional states
  • A stably calm, nurturing presence

Superparent 101: Mastering the Morning Routine is a course that teaches parents these things and more.  It is focused on helping parents design a flexible morning routine that ensures they keep their children emotionally attached in productive ways.  When children learn to follow a predictable morning routine while having their emotional needs met, they tend to be more compliant, making mornings more manageable and enjoyable for all.

Superparent 101: Mastering the Morning Routine is written by Coralee Nelson, BA, BED, MED.  She is a mom, educator and licensed helping professional who has worked with children, youth and families for the last 15 years.  She is passionate about incorporating relevant literature into aspects of family life that tend to be overlooked and undervalued like a predictable and flexible morning routine.  Her goal is to help foster vibrant attachments between parents and children in order for children to develop into healthy, productive and prosocial adults.  Coralee is a premiere instructor at

Certified Coach in Self-Esteem Elevation for Children Program Review: How Can You Help Children’s Esteem Flourish?

Positive Self Esteem for Children.

Learn the power of positive self-esteem for children.

The Certified Coach in Self-Esteem Elevation for Children Program by Dr. Joe Robino provides a unique opportunity for parents. The most important aspect is being able to influence your own child’s emotional and mental development through teaching life-long skills for efficacy and esteem. The second is to become certified so you can offer coaching to others as a form of service while gaining income.

My experience working with children and families in youth custody facilities, mental health agencies and schools has shown me how much children are hurting in our North American culture. The face they show is not typically hurt, however. It’s anger, fear, intolerance, aggression, anxiety and depression.

Click here now to gain access to this comprehensive series to support your child’s self-esteem.

In the city where I live, the highest reported rates of anxiety and depression for children is found in middle class, suburban areas. This week I met with one of my staff in order to create a safety plan for a boy in grade six who had a detailed plan about how to take his own life. This is my day-to-day. I’m hopeful if you’re reading this post, it isn’t your everyday. Still, you’re reading because you’re interested in inoculating your child from some of the mental and emotional ravages of our culture. Good for you!

The Certified Coach in Self-Esteem Elevation for Children Program trains adults to support children around feelings of insecurity. Certified coaches intervene when children engage in defeating procrastination or become stuck in frustration, leading to cycles of failure. The program also addresses how to reduce feelings of fear, worry, anger, depression and oppressing others through bullying behaviours in children.

When children’s feelings take charge of their lives, they don’t have mature enough brains to override emotion with reason or make more logical choices. That is why having trained, knowledgeable adults able to guide and protect using a valuable resource is advantageous.

The Certified Coach in Self-Esteem Elevation for Children Program is a perfect opportunity for those looking for a career in children to start building the skills to work with them effectively. Further, for those who already work with children—teachers, sports-coaches, clinicians and others can benefit from this skill-building prospect.

Being a certified coach may allow you to be able to work from home while setting your own fees and hours. In addition, a certified coach can gain fulfillment by making an impact in the lives of children and those who care about them. Unavoidably you will also impact your own perspectives of self by learning the material and applying it to your life, modeling healthy changes for all to see.

Having a structured, tested and well-tuned program to develop personal efficacy and esteem in children is always valuable. Even if you don’t go on to become a coach, the material will benefit your parenting and your perspective on children in our culture.

Even parents of your children’s friends might benefit. That over-the-fence kind of talk that gives other adults insightful perspectives in the wake of parenting challenges is constructive. Becoming a homespun “expert” about how to develop a confident and capable child in the wake of so much cultural shift is powerful.

Coaching is more than advice giving. It’s more than good, solid suggestions. There’s method and strategy with coaching. The very best way to learn how to coach is from a master coach. Dr. Robino has that reputation, with impressive accolades from celebrities and those who understand esteem development in children.

The Final Word…

Children are our most treasured human resource. They flow with potential. Potential can be stunted if the adults in their worlds do not care for them in the way they need. Building efficacy and esteem is a sure-fire way to help them overcome life’s predictable challenges, as well as develop confidence and competence so that they can achieve their true potential.  For those who want to go one step further, becoming a certified coach for children may take you places you never dreamed of!

Talking to Toddlers Review: How Can I Get my Toddler to Stop Tantrumming?

Crying-Boy---300-x-250---Inline-Rectangle (1)I birthed two babies with such extreme “colic” that I thought I would surely go mad. Between the two of them, we didn’t sleep for five years. The first child didn’t sleep through the night until he was 18 months. The second, not until after 3 years of age. Both children would be up for hours at night, screaming at the top of their tiny little lungs.

Although this review is about Talking to Toddlers, and not about colic, the lack of sleep for my children resulted in frequent tantrums and mood regulation challenges that significantly impacted our household. Not only that, my husband and I were so sleep-deprived we could hardly manage at the best of times, let alone when our little ones were tantrum-ing.

Want to learn more about taming your toddler? CLICK HERE!

Because I am a licensed helping professional, my inability to tame my children’s temper during the “terrible twos (and threes)” was supremely discouraging. I knew I’d been effective helping other parents with parenting challenges, but I was clearly failing at times with my own children What a humbling experience!

The developer of Talking to Toddlers, Chris Thompson is touted to be an expert in parenting, certified in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) as well as a noted author. His methods are reported to result in a solid rationale for his intervention strategies which are effective in calming young children’s outbursts. Based on my own knowledge of early childhood development, it appears that Mr. Thomson genuinely understands the basic premises of children struggling to communicate their wants needs prior to their ability to effectively use words.


Reviews of Talking to Toddlers indicate that there is a fair degree of psychological information that builds a foundation for this program. Psychological concepts, while appealing to some, may be unappealing to others. It may take some time to sift through the content in order to get to the meat of the intervention strategies. One reviewer indicated she felt natural “mother instincts” were ignored in the material, resulting in a less complete model for her.

For those families who have children with developmental disabilities or conditions like Autism Spectrum Disorder, this model will be lacking. Families who have children with neurological concerns would be better off consulting experts who treat particular disabilities.

FREE: three language strategies for better child behaviours

Maintaining good, productive relationships with our children is paramount. Children are created with the need to attach in a healthy manner with their parents. When this doesn’t happen, it is more difficult to gain compliance and build trust over time. When a child is particularly challenging, parents put much energy into punitive pursuits, rather than building on strengths. As Chris Thompson states, there is a single word that parents often over-use with toddlers, resulting in temper tantrums– “NO!” Wouldn’t it be fantastic to find an alternative to the easy-out “NO!” directive when we’re frustrated with childhood behavior?

Talking to Toddlers may well provide many of the tools needed to help parents feel a sense of control when it appears their child is out of control. The tools and tips outlined are noted to provide insight into reasons for tantrums and develop a plan to overcome angry outbursts based on science and the experience of the developer, Chris Thompson.

Learn more about how to talk effectively to your toddler by clicking here now!

Because the material is presented in an MP3 format, it can be listened to whenever, instead of finding a quiet few minutes to open a book.

One testimonial indicates that not only do the strategies work with her three year old, they also work with the adults in her life. Helpful communication strategies, when combined with developmental knowledge can give parents the power to feel like they are working with their child rather than against them.

The Final Word…

While no system or program can be a magic wand that miraculously creates compliance in young ones, tools such as Talking to Toddlers may provide a solid basis in order to enhance parenting strategies, develop knowledge in the areas of early childhood and build lasting, positive interactions with one’s child.

If you are interested in developing your parenting potential as well as mitigating some of the tantrums in your house, this program will provide you with words of advice as well as strategies rooted in science that can assist you with your toddler.

The Anxiety Free Child Program Review: How Can my Child Overcome Anxiety?




For most of my professional career I’ve worked with children and adolescents. I’ve worked in schools, youth custody facilities (jails), and mental health facilities assisting young people find their way through sometimes-terrible difficulties, including anxiety.

What I know from my own work is that anxiety doesn’t have to take control and dominate a child’s life. However, that’s how it feels when kids are in the midst of it. And I know from talking to parents that they become very worried when they can’t convince their child out of the panicked state they’re in. This is completely unsettling and soon it feels like a noose has constrained the whole family.

The Anxiety Free Child Program is an award-winning program (Mom’s Choice Award and winner of Parent Tested-Parent Proved). It has been developed by Rich Preston who struggled horribly with anxiety as a child, and Dr. Cheryl Lane a certified clinical psychologist.

To learn how to support your child overcome anxiety, CLICK HERE NOW!

While the Diagnostic Standards Manual-5 (DSM-5) outlines a list of anxiety disorders that a licensed practitioner can diagnose, I like the term the Anxiety Free Child Program uses to explain the difficulty—a “mental misunderstanding”. While it doesn’t mean that childhood anxiety is “all in their heads”, it does mean that the brain can help overcome the challenge.

The phrase “mental misunderstanding” is instructive and can reduce parents’ fears. Parents understand misunderstandings. What they often don’t understand is anxiety.

One of the standard treatments for anxiety concerns is called, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, or CBT. Very simply, CBT teaches people that worries and anxiety can be managed and overcome by understanding the problem, challenging worrisome thoughts, practicing new behaviors, and maintaining the change. That seems pretty simplistic on the surface. However, when programs use CBT, mindfulness, relaxation and other techniques developed at a child’s level, there is a high likelihood of success if used appropriately.

What I like about the Anxiety Free Child Program is that it invites parents into the process of helping their own child. While there is a time and place for professionals, helping parents understand anxiety, learn about the various symptoms, including physical symptoms (stomach and head aches, fluttery tummy, aches and pains, etc.) is powerful. Especially because so often parents feel power-less in the face of debilitating anxiety in their child’s life.

Voila_Capture 2015-06-13_01-39-42_PMEven the landing page for this program has helpful and accurate information about childhood anxiety. Although it won’t teach the strategies and skills needed for helping your child overcome anxiety, it will give you a good overview and help you determine if it is actually anxiety that is getting in the way of your child having a happy, peaceful and productive childhood, or something else you need to explore.

Learn how to help your child overcome debilitating anxiety by clicking here now.

Ultimately that’s what we want for our kids, don’t we? We seek to provide healthy food, and a stable environment for them to grow up in. We help them achieve at school and in leisure pursuits. We also need to attend to their emotional mental health needs.

While there are a lot of great workbooks, manuals and journal articles about helping children overcome anxiety, this e-book and subsequent components are quickly accessible and less expensive than other options out there. Not only do you acquire the manual, but an audio version, the Child Anxiety Relaxation and Imagery System (C.A.R.I.S), which supports a child’s ability to mentally and physiologically relax, which can be an important component in mastering anxiety. Additionally, the Anxiety Free Masterminds Audio Series, which has recordings from top professionals is available along with additional bonuses.


This is a comprehensive program that will require parents to take ownership and leadership in helping their children overcome anxiety. Parents will have to invest a significant amount of time in learning the content as they are the teachers for their children. This program will definitely be more work than taking your child to a therapist. Commitment and compassion will be required in order to see success.


When children are anxious, the people they typically desire the most are their parents. Even if there’s a measure of conflict in the home, my professional experience has shown that anxious kids still want mom or dad. Because this program intrinsically involves the parents, it is likely to “stick” if mom and/or dad pursue it doggedly. It teaches a language in the home that keeps the learning alive. Anxiety can sometimes sneak back into kids’ lives, so being able to revisit pertinent content and help your kids return to a balanced state is valuable.

Having a manual as well as an audio of the manual is a great aspect of this product. Having access to age-appropriate relaxation exercises and recording of top clinicians who assist children with anxiety are beneficial.

Reviewers express that this product is sound, and solid, giving it “two thumbs up” and “100%”. One reviewer saw her niece as well as other children overcome anxiety, giving validity to the efficacy of the content.

The Final Word…

Children who struggle with anxiety need a child-focused program to meet their needs. Adapting adult resources for children is not developmentally responsible, and you’re less likely to see results.

If your child is struggling with anxiety then download the Anxiety Free Child Program in order to lift the suffering your child is enduring. A program rather than a few tips from various sites or resources is much more useful because it’s comprehensive.

Once you’ve purchased, keep at it as anxiety reduction takes time. But have heart. By pursuing action, you will see results.

CLICK HERE NOW and enjoy the peace that comes when your child is free from anxiety, able to live a vibrant life!

Plan My Baby–Prince or Princess Review: How Can I Ensure the Gender of my Baby?

Voila_Capture 2015-06-13_03-21-32_PM

The Plan my Baby–Prince or Princess guide has been developed for couples who want to have an almost certain way of ensuring they conceive the gender of child they desire. While many couples are simply grateful that they have given birth to healthy and happy children, there are some who desire a child of a particular gender. If that is where you’re at, then this e-book is for you.

Alicia Pennington is the author of Plan my Baby–Prince or Princess. She is reportedly a midwife of over 20 years, and has consulted physicians and interviewed couples who have practiced the art of gender selection methods for their children. Information reveals that the content of this book is rooted in science, while at the same time being very practical. While some reviewers identify repetition in the content, this really isn’t a negative aspect. Repetition means the reader will likely retain the concept as it has been introduced more than once.

CLICK HERE to learn more about reliable gender selection methods.

Available information indicates that Alicia invited her patients to try her methods. It appears she even had an initial sample of 117 couples, where the outcome was a 94% success rate, indicating statistical significance if her methodology was sound. Reportedly, this guide has helped over 8,000 people to date.

Today, Alicia Pennington works as a consultant rather than a mere midwife knowledgeable about gender selection methods. It appears she had such an overwhelming response to her success with gender selection with individual patients, that she decided to broaden her scope to help meet the needs of a wider audience. Hence the guide, Plan my Baby–Prince or Princess.


While there does not appear to be a great deal of negative reports, it is clear that the   94% success rate is less than ideal. How does a couple ensure they are not in the 6% unable to deliver the gender of child they have hoped and worked for?

Midwifery is an ancient art. While a number of women in the western world choose a midwife to assist in delivering their children, it should be noted that some practices are contrary to a typical physician assisted birth. Thus, if you are skeptical, going over the guide with your physician, while pointing out the high degree of success may make you more comfortable.

Click here to discover how you can plan the gender of your baby.

Voila_Capture 2015-06-13_03-23-40_PM


A significant benefit to this guide is that the processes described are completely natural and will not harm the mother or pre-planned baby.   Not only are natural procedures described, it is reported that Alicia Pennington actually used the methods herself when she was trying to get pregnant, experiencing success.

Another benefit to this guide is that it is a teaching tool for couples. It discusses fertility, natural foods and healthy alternatives to the modern diet that benefit a developing fetus and his/her mother. Creating a healthy environment in the mother is critically important no matter the desired gender of the child. Good, sound, prenatal council accompanied by regular doctor visits is beneficial for strong pregnancy outcomes.

The Final Word…

If planning the gender of your baby is near and dear to your heart, then this is a book that will provide rich information about how to increase your likelihood of success. Available information suggests that even couples who are open to either gender, will find good, useful information from a seasoned midwife about delivering a healthy baby into this world.

May your hard work and dreams come true. Discover how to increase your success of delivering a baby with the gender of your choice.  CLICK HERE NOW!

Children Learning Reading Reviews: Reading Success for Youngsters

childre-readingI am absolutely passionate about helping little-brains grow into healthy, productive and successful mature-brains. I have worked in the education and mental health fields for almost 15 years, and know the power of good reading skills for children and adolescents. I have assessed numerous children and youth over my career; when I discover their reading ability is significantly below same age peers, my heart goes out to them. I know life will be more difficult for them without successful reading skills.

CLICK HERE to learn about Children Learning Reading.

When kids feel limited in their academic ability, it has a significant impact on their feeling of self-efficacy. When they struggle with things that their peers seem to achieve almost effortlessly, it takes a toll on their little hearts. Parents who observe their children struggling to read may feel powerless and even start to blame themselves for their child’s inability.

Our western world emphasizes the necessity of reading. We all know that success in the classroom requires the sequentially developed ability to read–phonemic awareness, letter and word identification, understanding context and more. Success in the real world is no different–reading is essential. Everything from reading menus and newspapers, to understanding bills for services, to comprehending sub-titles on media presentations require reading skills.

Children Learning Reading is reportedly designed by parents, for parents. The developers, a couple named Jim and Elena who have 3 children used this method with their own kids when they were teaching them to read. Thus, Children Learning Reading is a system that parents can use at home in order to assist their children develop the life-long skill of reading fluently and with understanding. According to reviews, parents absolutely love this reading program because it’s simple, practical and effective.


This program does not appear to be designed for children who have neurological impairments like learning disabilities. While it likely still has beneficial components such as sequential learning (letters explicitly linked to sounds), phonemic awareness and other reading essentials, children who have learning disabilities will benefit from specialized assessments with targeted interventions to meet their unique learning profiles.

This program is designed for parents who want to teach their children to read with success early in life (prior to 3 years). The testimonials speak for themselves, and parents report that even young children are building reading skills, enjoying the open world of early literature.

The program purports that a daily dose of 10-15 minutes while using this system enhances the child’s ability to read in a relatively short period of time.

Clearly, the developers of Children Learning Reading have put some time and effort into the study of reading success. They cite articles that support early reading ability and successful academic outcomes later in life. Based on my graduate level training, I am familiar with similar literature, and can confirm that early reading success indicates strong academic outcomes for children.

CLICK HERE! Learn what it takes to teach your child to read successfully today!

While some product sites I’ve reviewed describe exceptional results, very few have research articles to support their system, perspective or product. Children Learning Reading provides a brief bibliography for parents to review on their own. This is considered a significant benefit.

Children Learning Reading is inexpensive compared to hiring a reading tutor or sending your child to a reading enrichment class. Not only is the product inexpensive, it allows parents to connect with their children in a healthy, productive activity that enhances good attachment relationships, which are known to heighten psychological outcomes for children.

The Final Word

Voila_Capture 2015-06-13_08-20-56_PMIf you are a parent interested in accelerating early reading skills in your child, enhancing their ability for academic success, and building good parent-child attachment, then Children Learning Reading will be an excellent addition to your parenting arsenal.

Pregnancy Miracle Review: Is There Hope for Me to Have a Baby?

A Review of Pregnancy MiracleOne of the most powerful and life-changing realities in a woman’s life is her ability to procreate, bringing a new life into the earth. From antiquity on, societies have survived because of the cycle of birth.

For women who desire children, but can’t get pregnant, there is a significant emotional void. I remember when my husband and I decided it was time to really “try”. While we got pregnant right away, we lost babies, and this was devastating.

CLICK HERE to learn about the Pregnancy Miracle!

I was in graduate school, working multiple jobs, and trying to recover from miscarriage. At the same time, I was getting older and felt a desperation to become pregnant. I went through feelings of frustration, anger, hopelessness, helplessness and embarrassment. Despite trying, I had a period of time when I wasn’t conceiving. I was referred to an Obstetrician, who did all the typical tests. She stated that although I had uterine fibroids I should be able to get pregnant as I was in my early 30’s.

I know how it feels to see my friends becoming pregnant, delivering babies, yet having an empty womb myself. I know how it feels to start looking at international adoption and other options simply to experience the most natural thing in life for a woman–her own baby.

An then a miracle happened. I conceived, gave birth to a healthy, robust baby boy. The second came along almost 3 years later. What blessings; what joys! I am forever grateful for my wonderful, rambunctious children!

The Pregnancy Miracle, written by Lisa Olson, offers hope to women who are in a similar situation to the one I just described–those who feel they have tried “everything”.  Those who’s hearts are close to breaking with loss because they don’t have their own little bundle of joy to hold in their arms.

Voila_Capture 2015-06-13_08-28-56_PMAbout Pregnancy Miracle

The Pregnancy Miracle is not really magic. You won’t instantly conceive with some kind of esoteric secret that most of us don’t know about. Instead, it is a holistic pattern of living gleaned from scientific and common sense techniques used for centuries by women in the Orient. If you can sustain the program, it will help reduce stress and other deficiencies that can contribute to fertility concerns in women.


While this appears to be a very comprehensive program based on current scientific research, it clearly requires the purchaser to invest in products beyond the cost of the book. Supplements and specific food that you may not currently be using may be a significant part of your success in using the Pregnancy Miracle. Thus, additional cost must be expected.


The Pregnancy Miracle claims that over 137,000 women have been helped using little known tips and natural methods that positively impact fertility despite potentially challenging conditions, like uterine fibroids.

The program outlined in this electronic book invites women to follow and understand what might be getting in the way of pregnancy and what might help overcome the inability to conceive and carry a baby to term. There are numerous endorsements from happy customers who have achieved success by using this program.

Satisfied customers talk about the comprehensive nature of the material. There are holistic components, discussions about food that promote fertility, and information about modern fertility treatments that may or may not be as beneficial as physicians purport. Further, there is information about supplements that support hormone balancing as well as practical strategies such as breathing that further enhance physiological wellness in order to enhance fertility potential.

The Final Word

Voila_Capture 2015-06-13_08-28-38_PMClearly, information is power. For women who seek to bear healthy, happy and productive children, using a well-researched fertility program is of great benefit. Children are precious gifts–gifts that I know well because of my own challenge conceiving.

Consider that you will likely need to purchase additional components, such as supplements in order to complete this program. That being said, knowing you have a solid, well-research plan with many good reported outcomes will provide you a sense of hope.

All the very best to you as you seek to enhance your life by using the Pregnancy Miracle.  CLICK HERE and learn how to experience reproductive hope!

Start Potty Training Review: How Can I Potty Train my Child?

I didn’t pay a lot of attention to the concept of potty training when I had my first beautiful baby boy. I knew I’d have to do it, and I actually assumed I’d do very well at it. I am a licensed helping professional, after all, and had worked with children and youth for eight years prior to having my own children. I’d even worked clinically with kids prior to completing graduate training, so surely potty training would be a snap—at least that’s what I told myself.

WRONG! What a humbling experience!  Potty training did not come easy or natural to me and my two boys. In fact, the second son was even more challenging than the first. You’d think I’d have learned a few strategies from my oldest, but not so.

We used the pull-up method, a staunch “no-no” according to Carol Cline the Start Potty Training developer. Who’d have thought? I just assumed I could convince my kids with my stellar logic and charm to pee and poo on the potty rather than in their diaper.

We read books about going to the potty and “being a big boy”. They loved the books; it didn’t change their potty-outcome. We rewarded; we gave consequences. Just thinking about those days increases my blood pressure.

Well, who is Carol Cline and how does she have the nerve to say she has a “proven method” of potty training that can reap success in three short days? Sounds pretty far fetched to me. OK, so my reaction may be because my blood is still boiling from the memories, and I’m feeling the less-than-positive-emotions of our not-so-long-ago potty training days.

Start Potty Training grew out of Carol Cline’s experience as a mom of four, and day care provider. Alright, so maybe she has some “potty training street cred”; I’ll give her that. With Carol’s first child, she started noticing the huge market for pull-ups. She also noticed that kids who used pull-ups potty trained less quickly than those who did not. Oops.

With Carol’s vast experience she shares about a method that takes three days to instill in a toddler. She’s humble enough to state that there will still be accidents and other “bumps in the road”, but that ultimately by using her method the main foundation of potty training is built.


For some parents, a significant limit is their ability to dedicate 3 full and complete daytime hours to potty training. This plan is for those who are committed to learning and practicing with their child. It also requires a level-headed parent who will give this program a genuine chance. If you don’t qualify, this program’s not for you.

One reviewer indicated that the potty training methods outlined in Start Potty Training are not actually new, and that Carol Cline has re-packaged already valid approaches. Fair enough. An ancient philosopher once said, “There is nothing new under the sun.” I’d wager a few successful tricks have been honed over the millennia of babies needing to be trained.

Another comment was that after purchasing the program, the reviewer could not get their money back despite the guarantee of eight weeks. Since this is a ClickBank product, there should be no problem with a full refund if you are within the time frame. Just make sure to request a refund from ClickBank rather than the Start Potty Training website itself.


The Start Potty Training program is reported to be thoughtful and easy to follow. Consistency is the Children's Pottyname of the game, and that is a necessary quality for any kind of parenting challenge. Start Potty Training is open about the need to have a no pressure stance in regard to night-time training. This will be a big relief to those who are already starting to squirm when considering the need for nighttime diapers despite the “three day” magic.

Start Potty Training overviews the differences between training girls and boys. In addition, there is a section on training children with special needs such as those with specific disabilities as well as training multiples (i.e., twins). Travelling with a child is also covered, from going to the mall, to plane travel. Furthermore, Start Potty Training addresses typical fears such as potty training regression and tantrums. There is also the option of a help line. So, if you’re stuck, you can actually contact Carol herself for assistance.

The Final Word…

Maybe Freud was right. Maybe potty training is a critical point in every child’s development. If that’s the case, then my poor children! Actually, my boys aren’t any worse for the wear. Or, maybe it will all come out in their early 20’s while in therapy. Seriously though, I would caution that if your little ones are starting to feel the sting of your frustration, consider learning potty training lessons from an experienced master. Or, if you’re just starting this journey, let this teacher of children and parents lead you to a more fruitful, less unsatisfying journey through Start Potty Training.
