Toilet Training in Less Than a Day. Impossible? Think again. We have used this method with all 4 of our boys and it has worked great! My husband does the 1 day of training while I take the other kids out for a day of fun. The little trainer loves having daddy all to himself and it is a fun day with lots of special drinks and treats for rewards. I will say that there might still be a few days of staying on top of it after that first day. I like to stay around the house for as long as possible after the first day to cement everything they learned. But for the most part they learned the system in one day and then we had a few days to work out the kinks. We still remind them to go at certain times of day. And, we used the big potty (with an insert) for some of the kids instead of a potty chair. But we love the training system these authors have put together. We have just tweaked it from child to child.
The authors originally put this method together to assist mentally retarded adults so that they could learn to live without as much assistance. They adapted their method to use for young children.
If you are in the market for something that will be quick, give it a try. Even if the child does not master potty training in one day, it is sure to be much quicker than other options and a fun day for the trainer and trainee!
