Hi Lora,

I did your 3 day potty training to the word and all though it took my 40 month old 3 1/2 days I still feel that I was successful! The 1/2 a day was Monday and we have had no day time accidents at all. I have people just amazed that it worked and they start to ask questions and the way they potty trained was not anywhere near the method you teach. I do have some questions….

Thank you,
Cindy

Hi!

Never wrote before, ordered your e-book in March. I had originally thought about potty training by son in November/December 2006, but with a 10 day trip to London, thought not the best thing to start–being in a strange city and country, not knowing where potties are–decided to wait til we returned home in January. I mentioned to my son we needed to start potty training. He informed me he was not big enough and he wanted to wait til he was 3. (He was very verbal around 18 months). I heard what he said, caught a tad off guard, but agreed.

So ordered your book in March, he turned 3 in March and one day after his birthday, we did 3 day potty training. I will admit I did not follow your advice to the letter. I pulled what I needed/wanted and low and behold my son was potty trained in 3 days. Real underwear, real toilets, waking us up sometimes at 2a. or 5a. for help to tinkle.

I was estactic I discovered your e-book and was grateful I believed the ad I read which lead me to order your book. I am grateful I spent the money for this book, your method(s) versus waisting money on various books, pullups or padded underwear, little potties or other useless items.

So I must admit I was surprised when you are recommending Peter Potty for boys.

Personally I would not want some plastic thing in my bathrooms. We have a padded seat ring to make our big potties more his size for when he prefers or needs to sit. We also taught him to aim for the water at all times. Does he make it every time? No, but we also teach him to clean up after himself.
He loves being responsible, loves to help around the house, loves to be working on projects. So cleaning up around the toilet after he uses, is good and good for him.

I personally think anyone with boys should do the same. Someday they will have to leave the house–college, first apartments, etc. They should know how to cook, do laundry, pay bills and clean a bathroom.

So instead of paying $39.95 (on sale) for Peter Potty, show the big men and the little men in your life where the cleaning cloths are & have them contribute to the household chores. Someday they will appreciate it and so will the women in their lives.

Just my opinion. Again, I followed your advice and it worked wonderfully. We are done & trained.

I think if you stick with the advice you write, kids do not need any “seperate” potties/urnals.

Sincerely,
Adele

Hello, I bought your ebook and is so wonderful; I started Monday and finish Wednesday, it really worked.

I was very worried because my boy is 3 1/2, but is really good, no more pull ups!!

Thank you so much!

May God Bless You

Dear Mrs. Jensen

Just wanted to say ‘thanks’ for your ideas and website. I’m a mom of 3 boys and was dreading potty training my last one as the first two seemed to take a VERY long, tough time. I had the luxury of not having to send my youngest to daycare and so let him go in diapers until he was almost 3. I saw an ad for your 3 day training method and thought, “it’s now or never”. I tried it, really stuck to it for 3 days, and truthfully he was trained in only 2 days. It also was such a positive/rewarding program for both he and I and we both continue to love the fact that he is a big boy now. I think having your guidelines and support and making a real commitment was what really put it over the top.

Thanks so much,

Monica Joffs

Thank YOU!!

Lora-

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I potty trained my daughter last week and she’s still doing great.

My daughter will be 3 this coming Monday and she’ a bit hard headed so I wasn’t sure if this would really work for her.

I took the day off of work on Friday to start and it was pretty hard, as you said it would be. By Saturday afternoon I couldn’t see how I wasn’t going to be able to use Pull-ups for her at day care. However, Sunday came and she didn’t have a single accident all day. I told my day care provided what I had done and all she needed to do to help. I think she was a bit sceptical herself. It’s now Friday, 5 days in day care, and she hasn’t had a single accident. My day care lady was so impressed.

You had some wonderful advise to give and I am very greatful for it.

I do have one question, I’m having some problem with bed time. I don’t give her anything to drink 2 hours before and she goes before bed. In the beginning I was getting her up at 6am to use the bathroom but the last 3 mornings she’s been wet. How do I help her to wake up when she has to go? Should I set my alarm every night and get her up at 3 or 4 in the morning? If so, will that ever pass?

Anyway, I thank you again.
Good luck to you in all your endevours and God Bless!!
