3 Day Potty Training- The Pros And Cons
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Have your child potty trained in 3 days! That sounds great, doesn’t it? I don’t think there is anything that a parent would love more than to be done with potty training their child in a matter of 3 days. However, as a parent, I’m sure that many other parents are concerned with the risks associated with the 3 day potty training method. Of course, as parents, we always want to make sure that we make the best decisions for our kids.

Let’s begin by briefly explaining the 3 day potty training method. For 3 days, the child remains naked from the waist down, and the parents make their best efforts to get the child to the potty or toilet when they are showing signs of having to use the potty. Having the child to drink a lot of liquids is encouraged during this 3 day period, so that the child will have to use the potty often. By the end of this 3 day period, the child should be able to understand the concept of using the potty, and will be able to go to the potty with little help from the parents. Now that we have a simple explanation of what the 3 day potty training method is, lets go over some of the advantages and disadvantages.

Pro #1: It’s Fast! This method will definitely get you and your child on the fast track to being fully potty trained. If all goes as expected, your child will be using the potty on his own in a matter of 3 days. This is definitely an advantages for those parents who are trying to get their children ready for school, as most schools don’t accept children that are not fully potty trained.

Pro #2: The Cold Turkey Approach In some cases parents find that using the Cold Turkey approach works best with their children. If you have usually used this approach (with breastfeeding or co-sleeping, for example), and have had success, the 3 day potty training method may work for you and your child

Pro #3: It’s Worked for Many This method has worked for many parents, over and over again. It is a proven way to effecively potty train your child.

Con #1: 3 Days of Total Devotion Basically, you have to devote the entire 3 days to potty training. It requires that you clear your calender for three days to focus on the potty training process.

Con #2: Things Can Get Messy! It’s unavoidable. There are going to be accidents. No matter how hard you try to guess from your toddlers movements or facial expressions that it’s potty time, there’s bound to be at least a time or two when you will have to clean up a mess.

Con #3: It’s Definitely Not For Every Child The 3 day pottty training method will not work for every child. Some children don’t have the personality for this method, and will learn things in their own time.

Now you have somewhat of an understanding of what the 3 day potty training method is, and some of its pros and cons. After reviewing this information, you may believe that this is the best method for you and your child. However, if you are unsure, what’s the big hurry? There is absolutely nothing wrong with allowing your child to take his time with the potty training process. With your love and patience, they will eventually get there.
