Helping your child become fully comfortable using the potty independently – and teaching steps such as how to pull his pants down and back up, empty the potty, and wash his hands – probably will take months of follow-up effort. (And some skills, such as pulling pants up and down without help, won’t be possible for younger toddlers.) It’s best to think of the three days as the kick-off to an ongoing process. The most important thing to remember is that there’s no “correct” way to potty train your child – except for the one that works for you and your family. Potty Training Secrets is an excellent, well structured method to potty train a toddler in 1 to 3 days, at a fraction of the price without the hyped up sales video required to sell them. the book does contain some good, usable information about potty training, and you could successfully toilet train your toddler with it, but it’s nothing new and there certainly aren’t any ‘unknown’ or ‘secret’ methods revealed. That’s where this falls short for us . What you need for a potty training weekend is a standalone potty chairs to use at home (ideally one for every main area where you spend time, plus any bathrooms), plenty of water or diluted juice to drink, and snacks that encourage peeing (either salty ones that make you thirsty, such as crackers, or foods with high water content such as watermelon and Popsicle).
