Potty Training Survey Results and Apps
A new survey commissioned by Pull-Ups revealed that parents are willing to try anything to achieve the often-daunting task of potty training. Among other findings:
• Parents hold unrealistic expectations: One-in-three parents believe potty training should require four weeks or less. However, research shows the process actually takes more than 12 weeks for a quarter of children to complete.
• Parents aren't setting kids up for success: While just 2 percent of parents think the potty training process should take less than a week, 23 percent still have tried the three-day method.
• Mom's and Dad's training styles differ: Men are more likely than women to take the parent-led approach to potty training, while women are more likely to take the child-lead approach.
• Pull-Ups are a key to success: Pull-Ups were cited the most effective method for parents to potty train their toddler, second only to rewards.
