I totally agree! The 3 day potty training method (By L. Jensen) DID NOT WORK for us! We did everything EXACTLY by the book, and we only succeeded in making our son afraid of the potty. A month before we tried this method, we had been doing a little bit of our own training and he was very excited about the potty. But we decided to wait a month like the book said and try the 3 day method because our son is a quick learner. Please, DO NOT rely on this method. It is silly to say that one method will work on every child. It won't. Your child is unique and will learn differently from every other child. We have reverted to what we were doing before, and our son is doing great!View Thread
