19. Try The No-Cry Solution
From the creator of the No-Cry Sleep Solution, Elizabeth Pantley, comes its potty training equivalent. This method is intended to make the process both natural and peaceful. According to Pantley, success begin with laying the groundwork (narrating diaper changes, encouraging independence) around the age of one.

When your child passes the readiness quiz, you can put the potty in the bathroom and start practicing, courtesy of a potty routine. Handle accidents with calm and help your child relax as they try to go. Tears or temper tantrums are an indication that training needs to stop for the time being.
