Time to Ditch the Diapers! 10 Parent-Approved Potty Training Techniques

Naked and $75


Allow your child to walk around the house naked all day long for several days. Put the potty out so it is constantly available to her, and regularly remind her to use it. The idea is your child will realize the sensation of having an accident is unpleasant, and will quickly learn how easy it is to go to the potty to avoid that feeling.

And what about the money? Our reader says, "The $75 is for carpet cleaning." Another (cleaner) option if you're training during warmer months, is to try this method while playing outside (in the privacy of your own backyard, of course).
