9781932549645: The Magic Bowl Parent's Guide: Potty Training Made Easy

Dr. Baruch Kushnir is one of the world's foremost experts on bed wetting, bladder control, and child development. With an M.Sc. in Clinical Psychology, a Ph. D. in Medical Psychology, and 17 clinics in his name, Dr. Kushnir has synthesized more than 25 years of experience into this comprehensive step-by step manual. The Magic Bowl: Potty Training Made Easy focuses on the positive aspects of each individual child's behavior. Dr. Kushnir's plan is not only stress free, but it actually celebrates the process and makes it fun!

Included with the book is the critically acclaimed The Magic Bowl DVD, also created by Dr. Kushnir. The DVD centers around three cartoon toddlers that experience the transition from diapers to the toilet. It is a cheerful musical that presents the toilet as a warm, motherly, protective figure. It promotes good toilet habits (flushing and washing hands) and the animation, sprightly songs, warm mood, and fast pace appeals to the target audience of toddlers reluctant to use the bathroom.

About the Author:

Dr. Baruch Kushnir is a world renowned expert on bed wetting, bladder control, and child development with an M.Sc. in Clinical Psychology and a Ph. D. in Medical Psychology. Since 1982 Dr. Kushnir has helped more than 24,000 children in his 17 clinics throughout Israel.

Review:

This cheerful 'cartoon musical' presents the toilet as a 'warm, loving, friendly, motherly, protective figure,' putting a positive spin on potty training. A girl shows her playmates her newly acquired toilet skills, and the bathroom contents (toothbrushes, soap, toilet paper, and the friendly toilet bowl) burst out in song. While visiting the zoo with his dad, a boy 'wants to go pee in the toilet' because his diaper is wet and his dad did not bring any replacements. His father sings a song to help the youngster 'spray at the target.' A young girl wants 'beautiful panties' so she gives up her bulky diapers. This film promotes good toilet habits (flushing and washing hands). The cartoonlike animation, sprightly songs, warm mood, and fast pacing will appeal to the target audience of toddlers reluctant to use the bathroom. --Booklist, Abby Alpert

Based on the expertise of child psychologist Dr. Baruch Kushnir, this cheery program combines colorful animation with catch tunes to guide parents and toddlers through the transition from diapers to toilet - without using a potty seat. The Magic Bowl begins with the introduction of cartoon characters Jennifer, Cindy, and Sammy Joe, three good buddies from Crabapple Road. One day while playing together, the kids notice that Jennifer's not wearing a diaper anymore - she has bright-colored, big-kid underpants and a medal declaring her to be a bathroom champ. Naturally, the other two are intrigued, and with the help of their patient moms and dads - as well as a friendly singing toilet - both learn how to correctly use the titular magic bowl. Depending on a child's attention span, the film can be watched in one session or in 3- to 4-minute segments. The visuals are tasteful but also realistic and practical, and the songs help little ones remember what to do in the bathroom, while also addressing common fears and concerns (one ditty titled Poopy Drop! focuses on constipation, and there's a rap intended to calm anxieties about accidents). Engaging for tots and helpful for adults, this affordable and well-produced how-to is highly recommended. --Video Librarian, E. Gieschen

Created by Dr. Baruch Kushnir, an expert in sphincter control with an M. Sc. in Clinical Psychology and a Ph.D. in Medical Psychology, and years of practical experience working with children in his 17 clinics throughout Israel. The Magic Bowl: Potty Training Made Easy is a toilet-training instructional DVD for children. Gentle, friendly animation encourages young viewers to potty train themselves and soothes common anxieties. A helpful, fun and friendly way to introduce young people to the subject of toilet training, The Magic Bowl is highly recommended as an invaluable aid for parents and families preparing to meet this challenge in a child's natural development. --The Midwest Book Review, August 2010
