DEAR POTTY TRAINING CONCEPTS:
WE LOVE YOUR TRAINING IN ONE DAY PROGRAM. WE COULDN'T BELIEVE THAT IT ACTUALLY WORKS SO FAST. MY SON WAS IN DIAPERS ON SAT AND WE HAVE BEEN ACCIDENT FREE FOR 2 DAYS NOW. THE ONLY DOWN FALL THAT WE ENCOUNTERED WAS OUR SON COULDN'T MAKE THE CONNECTION ABOUT POOPING IN THE POTTY. HE WOULD LITERALLY POOP IN HIS TRAINING PANTS, TAKE THEM OFF AND RUN TO THE POTTY TO PEE. HE MADE THE CONNECTION IMMEDIATELY WITH THE DOLL AND PEEING IN THE POTTY, BUT AS YOU KNOW POTTY SCOTTY DOESN'T POOP. SO MY HUSBAND IMPROVISED. HE CHEWED UP A CHOCOLATE BAR AND PUT IT IN SCOTTY'S PANTS AND WE PROCEEDED JUST LIKE WE DID FOR THE PEE. MY SON MADE THE CONNECTION IMMEDIATELY.
WE HAVE TO ADMIT ONE DAY AFTER TRAINING WE WONDERED IF THIS WAS REALLY WORKING BUT NOW WE HAVE NO DOUBTS.

This process actually went very well, better than I had anticipated, actually. And, basically, it only took a day. I believe that the doll helped significantly, but the clincher was the 9 trips for the accidents. I do not recall first "outings" as a part of the pamphlet, which would have been helpful. Also, something that worked very well for us: while we were doing an activity, such as playing with trains, or watching a show, we would ask our son, "Braden, if you have to pee while we are playing with the trains, (or watching the show, etc.), where do you go?" Instead of asking if he had to go pee all the time. He would always answer, "To the potty." And we all knew the desired behavior. Thanks for all the help. Worth every penny!
I just wanted to thank you for Potty Scotty and for your training manual. With 3 serious days of training and 3 more reinforcement days, my son is fully potty trained! It took a lot of work and was wearing on both of us, but he soon realized it was easier to go on the potty than practice 9 times after he had an accident! He still gets plenty of hugs and stickers and is very proud of himself!
