Frequently Asked Questions

What makes I Gotta GO! Potty training services different from other methods?

Traditional “methods” are broad spectrum and fail to incorporate individual strengths and abilities. Nichole partners with parents to design, track, and modify potty training plans that build upon the strengths and skills of each child. While potty training with Nichole, children benefit from the close relationship between their parents and the potty training consultant while parents feel empowered and supported throughout the potty training experience.

How do I know if my child is ready to potty train?

There are many misconceptions about potty training readiness. From a physiological perspective, children are most “ready” between the ages of 2-3 years. Nichole believes training is most successful when going on the potty is one step in a series of learned behaviors that equate to successful potty training. Her unique approach will teach each of those steps and ultimately lead to successful elimination in the potty for both urine and bowels.

What is included in your potty training packages?

The Consultation package includes gathering all relevant information, a consultation call or visit (in person or via Skype), a custom potty training plan, and two weeks of follow up consultation via text, phone and email. The initial potty training plan will be revised as your child progresses to include potty training in school/childcare settings and public restroom facilities.
