Potty Training Boys and Potty Training Girls

Interview With A World Renowned Potty Training Expert

This morning I had the pleasure to speak with the world renowned potty training expert Carol Cline for our Potty Training Boys and Potty Training Girls website. Her claim to fame all started when she stumbled upon a method that will have almost any child potty trained and diaper free, in just 3 days. She has helped thousands of thousands of parents and below you can read some of the advice she had to share with me today in our conversation.

Me: Hi Carol, thank you for taking the time to meet with me here today.

Carol: Very glad to make the time! Hope I can help answer all your hard toilet training questions and help some parents along the way.


Me: Ok, so let me come right out and ask you then! Did you ever think that one day you would be the world authority on all things toilet training?

Carol: I wish I could tell you that I knew that this was my calling the first second I sat on my potty, but that couldn’t be further away from the truth. I actually went to school for business and owning my own daycare was always my biggest dream in life.


Me: That’s fantastic! So this interview will be going out to lots of parents who want to start potty training with their child. If you have to describe the entire pottery train process in one word, what word will this be?

Carol: Well let me break the rules and sum it up in two: “Buckle Down”


Me: Oh boy! I’m sure parents love hearing that. Can you explain to me exactly what you mean by “buckle down”?

Carol: Well I’m sure some parents would expect me to say “Run for your life” while they are secretly hoping that I would say “Don’t worry about it, it’s really easy!” The truth is every child is different when it comes to potty train them and it will be just as challenging as it is rewarding when all is said and done.


Me: So what would be the very first step parents should be taking going into toilet train their kid if they want a fast result?

Carol: The first thing I always tell parents is to remember P.P.C! That stands for always being “Positive, Persistent and Consistent”. These are the three pillars that make potty train stand, remove one and the entire thing falls to the ground.

Me: I know for a fact with my own child, that being positive all the way through was a big part of what made it work.

Carol: Children can sense if you are truly happy or not. If you’re not happy teaching them, they won’t be happy learning from you.


Me: There is an age old debate on when it comes to potty training boys versus potty training girls. Is it a fact that potty training girls is easier than potty training boys?

Carol: Now this is a question I honestly get asked a lot and the truth might just surprise you. Potty training boys and potty training girls is exactly the same! This myth started due to the basic fact that in the past, women would be the ones responsible for potty train the child, and typically women feel more comfortable toilet training their daughters instead of their sons, simply because they can relate better to them. But in reality, you will be potty training boys the exact same way you would be potty training girls – So there is really no difference.


Me: Now you literally “wrote the book” on how to potty train. If parents pick up your guide can they really have a diaper free child in three days?

Carol: Now let me say that if your child is 16 months, it will take a bit longer, than you could expect more like a few weeks. But nearly every parent with a child around the age of two (give or take a month or two) who shows signs that they are ready… CAN in fact be trained in just three days… Sometimes even less!


Me: What is the shortest time someone has ever toilet trained their child using the methods in your guide?

Carol: I once had a woman who had read my guide at 7 AM and e-mailed me that same day at 3:40PM telling me their child has gone to the potty all day long on his own! So to give you an answer on your question: eight hours and forty minutes exactly!

Me: An e-mail like that must have giving you a good feeling?

Carol: As crazy as it sound. Helping parents toilet train their children has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.


Me: So if parents want to experience to toilet train their child in three days, where can they find out more about your method?

Carol: They can visit my website! It’s the only place they will find out exactly how I came up with my personal method and get their hands on a copy for themselves.


Me: Well, thank you so much for your time today Carol.

Carol: Any time!


Well of course after this interview I tried Carol’s Start Potty Training method en it is a very easy and effective method that is doable for any parent struggling with potty training their boy or girl. I managed to get our son potty trained in 2 days! So we from Potty Training Boys and Potty Training Girls can really recommend Start Potty Training!



  1. I’m at a loss. My son has turned two and we tried the potty training in three days. It gave us a great start however he isn’t completely potty trained. He loves to use the toilet ( big or the small plastic one). The big one, he pushes his stool up to it, climbs on and goes, gets off and flushes. The small plastic one after he is done he will empty it into the larger one and flush. He likes to make bubbles in the water with his pee. If I set a timer and put him on every hour I can keep him dry, but if he has a more to drink than usual and needs to go before the hour he won’t tell me and he has an accident. He understands the concept but for the life of me I can’t get him to tell me when he needs to go. I have to just tell him it’s time to go and put him on or he’ll have an accident. When he does go he gets a small treat (for pee) and a tractor sticker ( for poop, since it’s a bigger accomplishment and he is obsessed with tractors). How can I get him to tell me when he needs to go? I really don’t want to go back to diapers but I will if I have to ( I’m expecting in 3 weeks. I started with him two months ago thinking that was plenty of one on one time with him to get this done but I guess not) what am I doing wrong? why won’t he tell me when he needs to go? He is at a stage in life that no matter what question I ask him his response is always no, so asking him if he needs to go doesn’t get me anywhere. . . .

    • I am having the exact same problem with my son, Dianne! It’s very frustrating! And to top it off, there seems to be absolutely no information addressing this problem!! I’ve decided to just keep trying, setting a timer and HOPE eventually he’ll start telling me! I don’t know what else to do! 😕

  2. My boy is four and half and potty trained at 2 and half quite easily compared to his sisters however i have a problem… I can’t get him to b dry at night yet… He wears a nighttime pull-up and its still very wet in the morning… He goes to toilet before bed and I stop the fluid intake at least an hour before bed.. He was always a deep sleeper so he’s not waking to go… I’ve tried lifting him out to go but that doesn’t work either,he’s either to sleepy to go or wakes up too much and can’t get him back to sleep then.. I’m actually stuck on what to do..? If I put no pull-up on him so he can feel the wet sensation then everywhere is destroyed and it doesn’t even wake him…I thought he would grow out of this by now but now I’m worries .. Any ideas???? Please

    • joanna,

      My daughter was the same way as your son, full pull-up every morning. One day i just decided let’s try just wearing underwear to bed, I put her on the toilet before bed, put a night light in the bathroom and said if you need to pee in the night get up and go on the toilet.

      She never has wet the bed at night since we went cold turkey. Why not give that a shot! She has a protective matress cover on under her sheet, so if there is an accident, it’s no big deal. Give it a try, you have nothing to lose!

  3. My daughter is 15 months. I put her on potty seat she never does it.. Please help.. It disappoints me

    • She is still very young for potty training. I would suggest to wait a bit and try again later. Be positive. She will not wear diaper when she will grow up. Eventually they all learn 😉
      Ours is 19months and I put her on potty few times a day, but she does very rarely. She shows signs when she pooped and has to be changed, but if I ask her does she needs to go toilet she always says no!
      Good timing is everything!

  4. I have the same problem as Dianne and Susan. My son is over 3.5. He goes poopie all by himself but when it comes to pee-pee he knows what to do and what is expected but he simply refuses to stop what he’s doing and go. If I set a timer and insist he go, he does. But he won’t ever go when he’s with friends, the gym daycare, or stores. He starts school in two days and is supposed to be fully potty trained but I can’t say he is because he won’t go to without being reminded or walked to the potty by an adult. My husband and I have tried stickers, prizes, being naked or wearing big kid underwear but nothing has worked to get him to go pee-pee of his own accord. There’s nothing out there to address this issue more fully…being capable but refusing to go.
