J “We read multiple programs and chose this one, in part, because the author was adamant throughout her book that it would work – and stated REPEATEDLY that, if readers did not have success after 10 days (which, in her words, would be quite unbelievable), they should contact her immediately so that she could send a lengthy questionnaire (to help determine where the problem might lie) – and, after reviewing the form, she would provide assistance via a phone consultation. That was the kind of guarantee and troubleshooting support we were looking for, just in case we needed it.
Further, we’d read many rave reviews about the program. We also read reviews stating that it absolutely did not work for some children… but those negative reviews seemed to be the minority. Furthermore, my husband and I don’t do things halfway…so, we figured that the negative reviews were just from people who didn’t try hard enough/didn’t give it 100%.
After reading the book twice, we set aside 4 whole days (Labor Day weekend 2018). My husband tended to our infant, our pets, cooking and cleaning, etc. My attention was 100% (ONE HUNDRED PERCENT) on our toddler every single second that he was awake. Ours was the absolute model of implementation. We had some success in the first couple of days (pees, and then poops, in the potty), and our son was hugely excited. But then – just as quickly – he seemed to be ‘over’ it. He started to have fun peeing where he pleased, trying to get one past me (even though my eyes were glued to him, and I always sprinted him right to the potty). To him, it was a game. Then, he stopped pooping in the potty altogether. He would just hold it for hours until he was in his ‘nighttime underwear’ (…exactly as some other reviewers had stated…though I’d dismissed at the time:/).
He had shown every sign of readiness for a couple months before we started training (at 2.5 years), and he was extremely excited at first. We talked it up for weeks, and were BEYOND over-the-top with praise. We cordoned off a part of the house where he had preferred drinks and foods and played preferred games with me. We praised non-stop. We gave one gummy snack (his favorite) for pee in the potty, and two for poop. After the 4 intensive days that we’d allotted (i.e., an extra day just in case), we’d only had spotty success (i.e., when our toddler felt like it), so my husband took more days off of work so we could continue. (I work from home part-time, but also took time off.) After 10 truly intensive days (e.g., saying “Tell me when you need to go potty” every 10 seconds our toddler was awake), we finally contacted the author for assistance. It took a full week to get the following reply: that we could always just put our son back in diapers and try again in 3 months. We were floored. We inquired back about the promised questionnaire and phone consultation, and never got another reply.
A few weeks ago, we ended up having a bunch of lab tests run because our toddler’s poop had become an abnormal color (cream-colored), and there was a large mass in his abdomen. The mass turned out to be a huge amount of poop that he was simply holding in/refusing to pass. The doctor had us put him on daily Miralax to try to force it out, with only some success. He goes many days (still) without pooping – and, when he does go, it’s in his nighttime underwear only. It’s clearly about power and control for him.
It has been a miserable 2+ months for our family. Our toddler is very bright, and possibly (we see now) more headstrong than most, but he is by no means an abnormal child. He has consistently responded to behavioral shaping and reinforcement techniques in every other aspect of life. There was absolutely no indication that this would be a problem for him. I do trust that we’re in the minority with especially headstrong toddlers who want to exert control over potty training – but, considering the other reviews I saw, it can’t be that uncommon. And after all of the guarantees the author gave, and the assurances that she would be there to help if 10 days passed without success, all she could say was ‘maybe try again in 3 months’ (after her whole book emphasized never turning back). When we contacted her back about the promised questionnaire and phone consultation, there was radio silence. We feel taken advantage of; lied to; duped. And our son (who has another follow-up appointment with a doctor in a couple days, to try to clear his bowels) is worse off for the experience.
If you have a perfectly compliant child who has never challenged anything in his/her life, this may work wonderfully for you. If there’s any chance your toddler has a rebellious streak, please take this review as a warning… i.e. read it with the weight I should have given the negative reviews I read. I don’t know what to suggest as an alternative… I guess try to find a program that will *ACTUALLY* offer troubleshooting help, in case you end up needing it. I’d incorrectly believed this was that program. Maybe my first clue should have been the fact that the author repeatedly tells readers to contact her immediately for help…but never provides her contact information in the book. (I found her email after a few minutes of internet searching.)”
PK “We loved this method. Four days in, and our 33-month-old son is completely accident free! After the 3rd day, his pull-ups have even been dry after every nap and in the morning, and he tells us everytime he has to go. There are so many different opinions and methods on toilet training, but this one, hands down, has worked the best for our son. It’s been amazing to see how proud using the potty and wearing underwear has made him over the past week. He’s loved potty training. I took a week off work for us to focus on learning to use the toilet. He has loved the extra time together and the few days of having mommy’s undivided attention.
A few tips for parents just going into it (and a couple ways I varied from the author):
Be patient and sensitive of your child’s developmental needs. We tried this method when our son was 25-months-old, and it only created tears, stress, and frustration. The author seems to think that your child should be able to be potty trained when YOU, the parent, decide. But if your kid’s not physiologically ready, then forcing it can do more harm than good. If you’re unsuccessful, don’t beat yourself up. Give it a break and try again in a few months.
Consider having your child naked from the waist down for the first day. I know the author suggests underwear only, but if your undivided attention is on your child, it is much easier to see when he/she starts peeing when naked than if in underwear. Naked, I was able to rush our son to the toilet after the first drop of urine. With underwear, there would be a stream of pee down his leg or puddle on the floor before we got to the bathroom.
Cave in and get juice. We are usually very strict about beverage choices for our kids. Water and milk are the only options. For potty training, I bought a couple bottles of apple juice and Gatorade. Our son was ecstatic that mommy was letting him drink something sweet, and it has made potty training more special and magical for him.
It’s ok to tell your kid to go. The author believes you should only take your child when they ask or if they have an accident, but we have set times everyday when I make my son sit on the potty if he hasn’t gone in awhile. Upon waking, when his little brother goes down for his nap, before lunch, at naptime, etc. About once every 2 hours. I think having a schedule has helped him learn to go before his bladder is fit to burst, and by the 4th day, he’s been asking to go when he actually needs to, and not just when mommy makes him.”
This book has a lot of fluff, could be written in 2 or 3 pages, and has LOTS of questionable advice: give your child candy when they go potty?? give them juice so they’ll want to pee?? Tell them they made a bad decision when they have an accident?? Don’t change their wet/soiled clothes immediately if they have an accident in a public place so they learn a lesson??
Way to solve a problem and create 1000 new ones for your child and yourself.
1) Books that say a kid is ready at 22 months should say “physically” they are ready. You cannot force any child to be “ready” just by their age.
2) This book was very lacking in advice on what to do when the child refuses to sit on the potty at all and what to do/not to do in many circumstances that come up.
In general the techniques employed by 3 day potty training assume that a) the kid is willing or is compliant enough to listen to you and b) will tell you they need to go and c) are willing to sit on the potty for any length of time. My child is none of these things.
This book in particular says no tv because the kid will just release while they’re watching and won’t be paying attention to their body cues. Another book said you can watch tv as long as you’re next to your child. Either way, it makes zero difference to a child who doesn’t understand their body cues OR who doesn’t care if they pee themselves OR who just refuses to tell you they need to pee because they just don’t want to go in a potty. Bottom line is, I have tried 2 long weekends using 2 similar 3 day potty training directions to a tee – and ended up with nothing but 2 wasted long weekends and a feeling of failure and disappointment. Yes we had lots of fun spending quality time with our child, but we also missed out on playground trips, going out to eat, having fun outside of the home environment, all because we believed the books when they told us things will “click” by the end of the 3rd day if we maintained the consistency and positivity. And if things DON”T click then it’s because we didn’t do everything they said or we left it too late.
Things didn’t click by the end of the 3rd day. Things haven’t clicked by the end of the first week. Every kid is different and promising results with this 3 day potty training technique for EVERY KID is unrealistic and sets the parent up for failure. Try it out, but don’t blame yourself if it doesn’t work and just try different things.”
