The basis for using stickers and a chart is really simple- to provide a visual reward for positive behavior.  Children love to have their work displayed, and potty training charts capitalize on that fact.  The positive incentive encourages the desired behavior.  The child practices the behavior enough that it becomes habit, and before you know it, the child is potty trained.  Charts and stickers provide a visual reinforcement, a reminder of the progress

being made, and are motivating for both parents and children.

There are several ways to approach potty training with rewards.  The key is to have your child feel a sense of pride and accomplishment for her hard work.  Keep in mind you don’t want her to feel bribed, or left feeling disappointed if she is unable to earn a reward.

You know your child best, so try to design a “reward system” that you think will work for your child.  The “reward system” could be as simple as a sticker for each time your child goes to the potty.  Or you might decide to reward your child each time she attempts to go to the potty.  You choose the “rewardable behavior”.

An increment of time or a certain number of “rewardable behaviors” lead to a “milestone reward”.  For instance, after 10 stickers or a day of trying, you could recognize your child’s effort by reading her an extra story or singing an extra song at bedtime.  To keep your toddler motivated, you can increase the value of the “milestone reward” as she progresses.

For example: at the end of the week, your child may get to select a toy from a “treasure chest” (a bin you have filled with new toys) or you may make a trip to the movies or you take her for a visit to her favorite park.

A caveat in regards to rewards:

If the reward is too big, then you child will be more focused on trying to get the reward and may get frustrated when she is unable to collect the reward as fast as she’d like.

Be flexible, making adjustments when needed.

For example: one mom used M & M’s for urinating in the potty.  This worked well in the beginning, but then her daughter figured out that she could urinate just a bit and still get an M & M.  Next thing she knew, instead of urinating all at one time, her daughter would urinate a bit at a time to get those M & M’s.  She had to change the rules on her daughter.  She drew a line inside the potty and told her daughter that she would now get an M & M only after the urine reached that line.

Remember, the best rewards for children are as simple as extra attention from a parent.  Verbal praise, extra hugs & kisses and extra quality time with a parent may go a much longer way in comparison with material rewards.

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Potty training in one day.

It REALLY REALLY works. My daughter turns 3 in December 09 and she is finally very happy to be potty trained. We tried toilet training in July but she was not ready. She had all the signs but did NOT want to do it. I also feel like I did not have all the tools to be a good teacher. Thank you for giving such great instructions and a method that is so do-able for both the parent and child.

I had some skeptical buying the doll, the book and the DVD. Boy oh boy am I glad I got the whole system despite my skepticism. This product has been worth every single penny. It is worth it to see the pride in my daughters face. She goes both number 1 AND 2 on the potty. Literally all done in 1 day for number 1 and day 2 for number 2. AWESOME. Great! GREAT! So rewarding for us both. I can’t thank you enough.

I am so glad my friend recommended Potty Training In One Day. I vow to tell all my friends and new moms all about it.

What a FANTASTIC product.

Potty Training in One Day REALLY REALLY WORKS!!!!!!!! YAAA.

Potty training is a big time in a toddler’s development and one that many parents dread. But a Texas woman says, with a little preparation and commitment from mom and dad, she can help potty train your child in one day. (see the video of the plan for potty training in one day)

Monica Yagele of Fort Worth has three daughters and it’s just about time for her youngest, two year old Isabella, to start potty training. "She has gone on the potty a few times already and she is showing readiness signs."

Yagele says she made a few mistakes with her first two girls, so she wanted to learn some new techniques. "I was looking for some sort of method, some literature that I could read about."

She came to an event sponsored by Metroplex Baby and Kids featuring Houston mother and entrepreneur Narmin Parpia.

Parpia took the concept "potty training in one day," which has been around for decades, and created a series of products that help parents through the process. "The first phase is the planning and preparation and this is the planning and preparation of the parent."

To get ready for the "one big day" where your child will learn to go in the potty,  mom and dad will introduce a doll. Potty Patty for girls, Potty Scotty for boys.

Yagele says "Isabella was very excited when she saw the doll, so they pulled the potty patty doll out immediately."

The Potty Patty doll also comes with training pants and a potty chair. You give the doll water and it goes potty in the potty chair. The potty training products will help teach the child that behaviors have consequences.

Parpia explains, "If your child goes on the potty what is the consequence of that and the logical consequence is that you the parent are thrilled that they did that, so you reward that."

Once your child understands the correct behavior, mom and dad should start building excitement for the big day where the child will stop wearing diapers. And on that day Yagele explains "You don’t want any outside distractions, you want to minimize that and just completely focus on your child and try not to distract your child in other ways too from the potty training process."

After the big day comes, the next step is follow up.  Parpia says "That is when you the parent has to be really patient, you have to be calm and you have to persistent through it."

Parpia says most children are accident free within a week, some will take a little longer. She says "It doesn’t work for everybody, but for the people that it works for, it is a great method."

It’s been about a week for the Yagele’s and things are going well for Isabella. "I took her diaper off and said this is it, we’re done no more diapers from now on, you’re a big girl now."

The training products also come with a book and DVD that will take parents about an hour to review. The whole package costs $50 dollars.


Here is the Plan for Potty Training in One Day story covered by CBS nightly new in Dallas.

We have found great success with this program.

My son is almost 3 and seems to have picked it up very easily. I think one thing that helped us is I put new books in the bathroom that he had never read before.

He didn’t mind sitting on the potty each time because he had a new book to read. And of course he loved Scotty! So here’s my question; the first 2 nights he was wet during the night. The first night he was still asleep and we had to wake him and change him.

The second night he came in to me to tell me he needed to be changed. I don’t know if I need to switch him to pull-ups or see how it goes over the next few nights.

We are now on the third night after starting; we didn’t give him anything to drink 2 hours before bedtime in the hope that that would help. While still in diapers he would wake up dry a lot.

The only information I can find about peeing during the night is for older children (5 or older). I don’t this is a bed wetting problem in the clinical sense so any advice will be greatly appreciated!
