How to say goodbye to the diaper in an educational perspective. Ethical and ecological suggestions and practical advice to remove the diaper, facing the path of shedding.
Removing the diaper is one of the most important stages in a child’s growth journey. The learning path is twofold: it is not only a matter of learning to use the potty, but also of abandoning the use of the diaper. Via il pannolino! illustrates the simplest and most pleasant way to remove the diaper, without forcing and conflicts, but keeping in mind that there are no preconstructed recipes and that, indeed, much depends on the temperament of the child and the effective availability of the parent.In her book, Elena Dal Prà debunks the most common myths about potty training, enuresis and the age at which the process of ‘potty training’ should begin. She takes into consideration the various existing approaches, in light of the most recent scientific research and with the awareness that this particular moment of growth represents a milestone in the physical and psychological maturation of the child, as well as one of the first steps towards autonomy, all from an educational, ethical and ecological point of view. The book is enriched by numerous testimonies of mothers and fathers who wanted to share their experiences to help other parents who are looking for advice and suggestions and who want to get information in order to face this path in a serene way, helping the child to read the signals of his body.
Elena Dal Prà is a pedagogist and infant massage teacher, she explores issues related to breastfeeding, child growth, gentle discipline and in particular educational and environmental issues related to diaper weaning.
