Learn On Potty Train Your Child in One Day

How to potty train your child in one day

By GreatDad Writers

The Potty Trainer

Those against this approach contend that if the child is not �ready� then this intensive instruction will be detrimental to normal parent-child relationships. Opponents say this technique teaches kids to only go on command and not learn the correct process for themselves. Furthermore, they believe these children may actually take longer to train because they become resistant to forceful instruction.
