I don't have kids. I do, however, have a mother. And I'm spent enough time with little ones to know that potty training isn't exactly the most thrilling experience for parents of toddlers. Most would love to pull a Mary Poppins and just snap their fingers and have it over with.
Thanks to Wendy Sweeney, it may almost be that easy.
She runs a "booty camp" out of suburban Chicago where she potty-trains toddler in ONE DAY. That is not a typo.
Sweeney, a registered nurse and the mother of six, told TODAY’s Ann Curry that her system actually works about 98 percent of the time. Based on Nathan H. Azrin’s book “Toilet Training in Less Than a Day,” the woman who is called the “Potty Whisperer” trains parents as much as she teaches the toddlers.
Her No. 1 rule for one-day potty training? “Never ask if they have to go,” she said. “If you ask them if they have to go potty, then you are the one who is in charge of their body. We’re trying to transfer that responsibility over to them. So we just tell them if you have to go potty, go in the potty.”
And happy training.
