Constipation, Withholding and Your Child Reviews

This book would be particularly useful for parents but is also interesting for professionals and especially those dealing with babies and young children. -- National Childminding Association

Constipation, Withholding and Your Child is easy to read and introduces humour into a taboo subject while acknowledging the complexity of the problem. Cohn talks in plain language that can easily be understood by parents, health care professionals and older children. It uses a relaxed storybook style that encourages children to discover their own solutions...This book covers all aspects of the condition. It is an excellent resource for all those involved in the care of children with constipation and soiling. It will also serve as a helpful guide for parents, many of whom feel they have been left to cope alone.

It could also inspire parents to continue with a management programme, knowing there is light at the end of the tunnel if they persist with the medication, the toilet routine and treatment plan.
