Shane Michaels releases a review of Start Potty Training, a new method to potty train children that is designed to work in just three days.
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) December 06, 2013
Start Potty Training, a new method designed to help parents potty train their children quickly, easily, and effectively has caught the attention of Shane Michaels, prompting an investigative review.
“Start Potty Training is one of the most foolproof methods available for parents to help them potty train their kids fast,” reports Michaels. “Carol Cline has proven it with her own kids and thousands of others have also benefited from her breakthrough method as well. With Start Potty Training, parents no longer have to dread the toddler years just because of potty training—now it’s simple, easy, and can be done in less than a week.”
Learn more about Carol Cline and her method at her official site right here.
The Start Potty Training method was created by Cline as a result of attempting to potty train her first child. Through testing the method on her other three children as well as her day care class, Cline discovered a method for parents that goes against most outdated advice and theories about potty training. Each customer receives bundled audio, video, and readable versions of the guide so they can choose to listen, read, or view it on their electronic device. In addition to the Start Potty Training guide, customers receive free reward charts that make the process fun for kids, a free personal support life line, as well as a free bonus guide. The package, which is available for only $37, comes with a 100 percent money-back guarantee. If users are not satisfied within 8 weeks, they can request a full refund of the purchase price.
“Potty training can be a huge source of conflict between parents and children, but this guide totally eliminates that problem,” says Michaels. “A lot of parents follow outdated myths like thinking that sending the child to day care, sitting them on the potty, or having them wear wet diapers will encourage them to become potty trained. Other parents may think that boys are harder to potty train than girls. Start Potty Training debunks all of these myths and give parents an easy-to-follow guide for success.
“For the same cost as a package of diapers, parents can have access to this training information and be on their way to potty training their kids in just three days. And the best part is that there’s virtually no financial risk in testing the method on their own children.”

Los Angeles, CA–Potty training is a major step for both kids and parents. What most parents forget is that potty training is a process that requires patience and lots of it. For some parents its more patience than they had anticipated but its journey that counts. The main important element about assessing when to start potty training is getting it right with time. Potty training requires emotional and physical readiness. There isn’t a specific age, however, a number of parents start training their kids at the age of 2 years or 2 ½ and in some cases above 2 years. What most parents miss is that there’s no rush; starting too early isn’t a good idea as this might take your child longer to train.
Is your child ready? Ask the following questions.
Does your child seem interested in the potty chair or toilet, or in wearing underwear? Can your child understand and follow basic directions? Does your child tell you through words, facial expressions or posture when they need to go? Does your child stay dry for long periods of time or longer during the day? Does your child complain about wet or dirty diapers? Can your child pull down his or her pants and pull them up again? Can your child sit on and rise from a potty chair?
If you answered yes to half of these questions, then your child might be ready for potty training. However, if you answered no to most of the questions, you might consider waiting for a while. The same rule applies to children facing new change, children need time to adjust to change hence they can’t handle too many changes in a short period of time. How to toilet train your child.
Establishing when to start scheduling potty breaks is very important. One way of knowing is to leave your child on the potty chair or toilet without a diaper for a few minutes; this should be done several times a day. Give your child a toy to use while sitting on the potty chair or toilet and make sure you stay with your child when they are in the bathroom. This gives them self-confidence knowing that your there to support this big change in their lives.
Make sure you pay attention to toilet breaks; some kids express themselves when in need of the toilet. Some kids squirm, squat or hold their genital area as a way of letting you know that they need to go – respond quickly. Make sure that your toilet is potty friendly for your child. It’s wise to invest in toilet training seats; these seats make it comfortable for children when using the toilet. After weeks of potty breaks and training, it’s wise to ditch the diapers for training pants or regular underwear. Spoil your child and go shopping for “big underwear”. Also, throw in an incentive such as stars or sweets. Always be positive and encourage your child, it might take long but it’s a worthwhile journey.
My heart hurts. A 2-year-old has been beaten to death, and cops say it was her mother who killed the toddler for doing something every child has done at least once (if not more). Destinee Massey’s supposed “crime”? The toddler peed on the floor.
For that cops say 23-year-old Brittney Massey beat her daughter within an inch of her life. The little girl died later at a hospital.
Yes, her parents took her to the hospital.
It may be better than the mom accused of killing her child in a similar potty training mishap a few years ago and then sat down to eat pizza. But I’m having a hard time seeing this as “remorse” or “caring” for the little girl.
It turns out it didn’t help. According to police, Destinee’s father first came home from work at 12:30 a.m. on Wednesday to find his daughter limp, groaning, and gasping for breath. Michael Miles, who is not under investigation, is said to have asked to take the girl to the hospital then and there, but cops say Brittney Massey said no. It wasn’t until 8 a.m. that the hospital trip finally happened.
By that time, it was too late.
Now I’m a mom. I’ve potty trained. I know it’s frustrating. But I’m really finding it hard to summon any kind of sympathy for actions this heinous.
Kids pee on the floor! That’s what they do! Basically, it sounds like this child was killed for being a child!
What’s more, I’m loathe to say that taking an abused child to the hospital mitigates the abuse itself in any circumstance — even one where the child survives thanks to medical intervention. The fact is, if you don’t hurt your child, you don’t have to go to the hospital. Period.
If anything, the hospital trip here sounds less like it was about the girl than it was about an alleged abuser suddenly worrying she’d be in trouble.
And trouble she is in. Brittany Massey is facing charges of murder, battery resulting in death, and neglect of a dependent resulting in death.
If any of the allegations are true, I have to say I hope they throw the book at her — trip to the hospital or no trip to the hospital. This little girl needed someone who would care for her from the beginning, not after a major beating.
What punishment fits the crime here?

LONDON, December 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –
As with all milestones, there’s no magic age that toddlers are ready for potty training. Every child progresses in their own time and it’s important to start potty training when your little one shows signs of readiness.
Emma Kenny, child psychologist and brand ambassador for Huggies® Pull-Ups®, says: ‘Potty training is an important stage in a child’s development and parents are often unsure when to begin this journey.
‘There is no definitive timescale as every child develops at their own rate so parents need to be aware of the tell-tale signs that their child is ready to begin. It’s important not to compare one child to another, regardless of similarities in age; it is important to remember that, like their personalities, every child is different and their time will come.’
Children are often ready for potty training when they can show three or more of the following Huggies® Pull-Ups® 8 Signs of Readiness.
8 Signs of Readiness
1. Your child stays dry for two hours or more at a time, or is dry after a daytime nap
2. Your child tells you in words or by behaviour that wearing a wet nappy is uncomfortable, and needs changing
3. Your child asks to use the potty or the toilet
4. You usually know when your child is likely to have a poo
5. Your child asks to wear potty training pants or normal underwear
6. Your child can understand and follow simple instructions, like ‘bring me the potty, please’
7. Your child can show in behaviour, or can use words, to let you know they need a wee or a poo
8. Your child can pull their pants up and down

Maybe I should begin this post with STOP THE MADNESS. But then, I’m a stall surfer from way back. (They call me the resident expert on the topic around here.) If you object to a post about stall surfing, then move on now. Actually even if you are a stall surfer this might make you think twice. Especially if you have small children.
We all know that there are stall surfers among us. Many who won’t admit it. Face it, it only makes sense. How many bathrooms have you entered with magazines displayed nicely in some sort of rack or on the back of the toilet? So, taking a Tablet into the water closet shouldn’t be that big of a surprise. But combining stall surfing with potty training? That might just be going a little too far. It certainly adds a whole new meaning to “Game of Thrones” now doesn’t it?
But, there it is. Right there on Amazon. The iPotty. Actually the full name of the product is the CTA Digital 2-in-1 iPotty with Activity Seat for iPad. You too can help potty train your youngster with an iPad on the toilet. (What no Android version? I can see how this will fuel the platform wars going forward.)
What works for one child doesn’t always work for another, according to authors Sara Au and Peter L. Stavinoha, whose book, “Stress-Free Potty Training” (Amacom; $13), tells parents that toilet training should suit the child’s temperament. You can train your son in a flash, they say, if he’s a persistent person who focuses on a goal relentlessly or if he’s a perfectionist by nature. But that child still might need extra time to learn his skills because he wants to do them right.
It is harder to train an impulsive child, because he is usually so busy bouncing from one activity to the next that he forgets to go to the bathroom, and it’s also hard to train the sensitive child who is bothered by scratchy labels, seams in his socks and new experiences — like using the potty.
The strong-willed child usually gives the greatest grief. If you think your son refuses to use the toilet (or pick up his toys or eat his peas) simply because you’ve told him to use the toilet (or pick up his toys or eat his peas), you may have to get someone else to train him or learn to give your son his rules in a low-key, nonconfrontational way.
Tell him that he can still stand up to pee in the toilet, but you won’t ask him to climb on a stool to reach the little seat that you’ve put in the big seat that sits on top of the toilet so he can poop there. Instead, put a little potty chair in his room so he and his teddy bear can poop whenever they want. And be prepared to congratulate Bear when he uses it one day and to wipe your boy’s bottom to show Bear how it’s done.
You also have to show respect when you give rules to a strong-willed child — or indeed any child — if you want to get your own way. Tell your son that he doesn’t have to poop in the potty, but he does have to sit on it while he poops in his Pull-Ups so he’ll get used to the idea. And if this makes him hold in his poop? Quietly take dairy, chocolate and bananas out of his diet, because they are binders, and give him some bran in his cereal at breakfast and some stewed prunes at dinner, so his stools will be easier to pass. If constipation becomes chronic, it can last for years.
You also should tell your son that his body grabs nutrition from the foods that he eats and drinks, but it throws the rest away. This explanation will help him realize that his pee and his poop are trash. Just don’t flush the toilet while your son is still in the bathroom. It takes some children a while to realize that their poop isn’t part of themselves.
To learn more, read “Toilet Training” by Vicki Lansky (Book Peddlers; $13). The science is diluted, but it’s still the best and simplest book about a subject that matters so much at the time and is hardly remembered a few years later. For more consolation, please remember: your son will be trained by the time he gets married. And that’s a promise.

A potty training session turned into a heroic rescue when a brave Park Slope mom scared away a burglar breaking into her bathroom by chucking a shampoo bottle in his direction and screaming, police sources and the victim said.
Araceli Coello, 29, was training her 3-year-old daughter, Allison, inside their home on Union Street near Third Avenue at around 10:30 p.m. on Friday, when she spotted a strange man standing on the fire escape outside the bathroom window, trying to open it, she said.
“I started throwing everything I could find — cleaning supplies and shampoo — to get him away. I was yelling, ‘Why are you doing this? I can see you! I’m going to call police!” she told the Post.
“I was scared. I didn’t know what he wanted to do,” she said.
Her shouting spooked the wannabe crook, who then fled to the basement apartment, where he lives, police sources said.
Officers then found Edgar Ariza, 29, a son of the building’s superintendant in possession of a detachable fire escape ladder and burglary tools, police sources said.
Coello said the family is still shaken up about the break-in attempt.
“My daughter is better now — but at first she wouldn’t go to the restroom,” Coello said.
“It’s scary. I don’t know if it was the first time he had [tried] to do it,” she said.
Her husband, Rueven Mendoza, added, “You’re supposed to be safe at home.”
Ariza was charged with trespassing and possession of burglary tools.
A relative of the suspect, Anselmo Ariza, also arrested after he threw a fit during Edar’s arrest and was charged with obstructing governmental justice and disorderly conduct.
PARK SLOPE — A mom spotted a would-be burglar trying to climb into her bathroom window while she was potty training her daughter, according to a police report.
The 29-year-old mother was teaching her child how to use the toilet about 10:45 p.m. on Nov. 22, in her home on Union Street near Third Avenue. She spotted a man on the fire escape outside her second-floor bathroom, trying to get in through the bathroom’s window, according to the report.
Officers arrested Edgar Ariza, 29, in connection with the attempted burglary, police said. He was also charged with trespassing and possession of burglar’s tools. A ladder was recovered at the scene, according to the report.
Ariza’s defense attorney said her client was “adamant about the fact that he has nothing to do with the alleged break-in.” Ariza has never been arrested before, lives in the building’s basement, and is “confused” about why his neighbor accused him of wrongdoing, said Iliana Santiago of Brooklyn Defender Services.
“There’s definitely something more to the story,” Santiago said.
Other notable crimes from this week’s blotter at the 78th Precinct include the following, with details from police reports:
• A shopper at the new Uniqlo store in the Atlantic Center Mall on Flatbush Avenue had $1,590 in cash swiped from her pocket on Nov. 24, police said. The 28-year-old victim also had a Marc Jacobs wristlet purse stolen.
• A woman was washing her hands in a bathroom at the Barclays Center on Nov. 20 at 9 p.m. when a thief snatched her wallet, police said. The crook made off with the 32-year-old victim’s BMW car key, $400 in cash and credit cards.
• A woman was talking on the phone while sitting on a bench on Fifth Avenue and Sterling Place on Nov. 21 about 6:25 p.m. when a man grabbed her iPhone and ran east on Park Place, police said. The thief hopped into an SUV and then sped off.
• A burglar struck an apartment on Prospect Place near Flatbush Avenue on Nov. 20 about 10 a.m. The thief entered through the front door while the tenant was at work and stole two Apple MacBooks, an Apple PowerBook G4, an Apple iPad and a Nikon digital SLR camera.
Overall in the 78th Precinct, major crimes have dropped 1.1 percent this year compared with the same period during 2012, according to the most recent numbers from the NYPD.

As with all milestones, there’s no magic age that toddlers are ready for potty-training. (Wouldn’t that be so easy?!) Every kid progresses at their own pace, and just because your friend’s 2-year-old is going in the potty, doesn’t mean it’s time yours follows suit. Most parents tend to start potty training between 2 1/2 and 3 years old, but your little one may be ready for it earlier or later if he or she displays a few of these tell-tale signs.
Here are 6 signs your toddler might be ready to make the switch from diapers to the potty.
1. Does your child has an understanding of what it means to go to the bathroom like an adult, and has an interest in it? Since you give up your right to use the restroom in peace once you have a child, your little one likely has an idea of what you’re doing when you sit down on the bowl. Are they interested in it? Do they seem intrigued when you say, “Would you like to try going pee-pee on the potty?” If they seem into it, they might be ready. If they show zero interest whatsoever, maybe wait a bit longer.
2. Are they capable of sitting still(ish) for a period of two to five minutes? A crucial part of going to the bathroom — sitting down! If your little one is still a wiggle worm who’s hard to slow down, might want to hold off.
3. Do they stay dry for periods of two hours or longer? If so, this is an indication that they’re gaining more bladder control, and they might be ready for potty training.
4. Is your child aware when they’re in the process of going to the bathroom? Whether they feel the need to announce it to the world, or they just stand there going while knowingly looking at you, your toddler should have a grasp of this. Otherwise, they won’t know when it’s time.
5. Is your child in a cooperative stage? Any parent of a toddler can tell you, they’re either willing to cooperate or they’re defiant as all get out. If your child is more of the latter right now, probably best to wait.
6. Are your child’s bowel movements fairly predictable? Do they urinate a fair amount in one sitting? If so, potty training will be easier — for both of you.
When do plan on potty training your child?
