difficulty communicating

I just wanted to share my story of success with you. My daughter, Gracie, is 3 1/4 yrs old. She also suffers with Appraxia of speech. We “introduced her to potty training this past summer while I was in my last tri-mester of pregnancy of our second child. Unfortunately, I went into labor a month early and potty training got put on the back burner. We recently started back up and she was doing “pretty” good but it was taking soooo long. With 2 kids in diapers we were losing our patience. Then, we came across your 3day potty training method and decided to give it a shot. Let me be clear. This was the longest weekend of my entire life as I like to get out and have fun with my family on the weekend and we were trapped indoors. (Not to mention, it turned out to be a great weather weekend, too) Plus, while stuck indoors I was either following a very busy 3yr. old around or cleaning pee from the carpet. But lo and behold, Gracie went to school on day 4 (today) and came home dry!!!!!!! I feel like I won the lottery! This by far has been the greatest accomplishment of my parental life. My only regret is that I wasted so much time (and money) on other ineffective methods. Now I can not wait until my youngest son turns 22months and we can do this all over again and be done with diapers FOREVER!!!!! Thank you so much for sharing your potty wisdom with the rest of us!

I just have to tell you “WOW” we had church today and I had to give it a lot
of thought not taking Bohdan because I wasn’t sure if he was ready (potty
training). Our service is 2 hours long and Bohdan stayed dry the whole time
(I was asking him to tell me if he needed to go) “WOW” My husband and I then
took the kids out for lunch where Bohdan told us three times he had to go to
the bathroom !!!!! By this evening Bohdan is actually tells us when he has
to go making it (4 pee’s and 2 poops on the potty this evening).

I can’t express how lost for words I am, I thought Bohdan would never get it
because of some main reason please see below,

  • Very stubborn
  • Still having a little bit of a hard time communicating
  • Was very afraid of the potty

But after reading your book and using the techniques, it made it easier than
I ever thought possible!!!!!! Don’t get me wrong the first day or two was a
little hard having to stay right with him and catching him in the middle of
accidents, everyone kept telling me he’s not going to get it, he’s too
young, he’s going through too many underwear, my favorite go to the store
and him pull-ups.

I stuck to my guns and told everyone not to use negative talk around Bohdan
and myself and that Bohdan was a very smart boy that just need the
confidence and his mama to understand and read his signs.

Thanks a million, I know everyday will be easier. My husband and I are going
to Mexico next weekend and my mom is very happy I did this now and is
prepared for any accidents and I will be ready for any set-back when we
return in 1 week.
