  1. Your ideas were really creative and innovative, yet they were really useful enough for me. I never found it difficult to follow your procedures, and I would love to share this with my family and friends in my blog. Thanks and more power to your website.

  2. tvc, I am sure that she does not let her children just “sit there” in poop and pee. This was just a fun and cute way of talking about the bumps in the road of potty training a child. Enjoy it or don’t read it but don’t be a turd about it. Pun intended.

  3. So, for purely selfish reasons you should not potty train a child that clearly is ready to? This is just plain stupid! It’s just one more example of parents being too busy … So let the child keep using disgusting diapers and sit there in urine and poop! I just don’t get it!

  4. It’s true that newly potty trained kids are more of a challenge to be out and about with. However, there is one huge advantage to potty training early: using few diapers.

    Your last post was about environmentally friendly diapers, an even better way to be environmentally friendly is to not need to use as many diapers because your kid is potty trained early. Saving 6 months of diapers means ~1000 fewer diapers in landfill, not to mention the power/water used to produce them.

    There is a great book: Diaper-free before 3 that lays out how to train early. Following this approach with my just 2-year-old took 2 months before it all clicked. I’m sure some kids get it faster, but even 2 months wasn’t so bad. I do still carry around a travel potty if I expect to be too far from facilities, but that’s not too onerous 🙂

  5. This made me laugh! Number 1 is so true. As for number 3, I’m sure people laugh when they hear me in public bathrooms with my 3-year-old daughter yelling, “DON’T TOUCH ANYTHING! NO! DON’T TOUCH THAT!” while my 1-year-old son tries to open the stall door. I just had baby number 3 and I don’t even want to think about taking all three kids into a public bathroom! And for some reason the 1-year-old and 3-year-old love to yell in public bathrooms – I think they love the echo! Oy!
