My name is Dr. Phil Boucher. I'm a board-certified pediatrician, father of five little ones, and I have a confession: I'm a lazy potty trainer.
Tons of parents come into my office begging for advice on how to get their 18-month olds potty trained and I have no idea why.
Personally, I just don't have the patience to constantly ask a two-year-old, "Do you have to potty?" "Is it time to go to the potty?" "Make sure you go potty now or you won't be able to go for a while." Like I said, I'm a lazy potty trainer.
What it really comes down to is that I've found that no matter how hard parents try, it's way too stressful to potty train a child when neither the parents, nor the child, are quite ready. As a physician and a father, I've learned quick success comes down to a matter of timing, then technique.
If you're a low-key parent like me, you'll love my 100% pediatrician-approved, stress-free potty training techniques for lazy potty trainers.
