Dr. Rosemond offers a toilet-training technique called,''Naked and $75,'' in which he recommends that parents use with two-year-olds.
''You stay home from work with your child for a few days,'' he says and ''you let the child walk around the house naked all day long.''
The parent puts the potty where the child spends most of his time, and moves it when necessary to keep it nearby. Every so often, the parent reminds the child to use the potty when needed.
''Children at this age do not like urine and feces running down their legs,'' Mr. Rosemond says.
''When they have an accident, they stop and start to howl, and the mother comes along and says, 'Well, you forgot to use the toilet.' She puts him on the toilet, wipes him off, speaks reassuringly to him. And within three days, or five days, he's doing it on his own.''
The $75, he added, is for the carpet cleaning.
Have you ever tried this naked type of potty training?
