People really are hiring "professionals" to come to their house and potty train their kids. And it's a growing business! It seems a growing number of parents would rather not do the hands-on work themselves.
NYC Potty Training, Inc. was the New York City's first professional potty training service. Its website boasts, "We will potty train your child in 1-to-2 days, and you can sit and watch, be totally involved in the process, or just come home from work to your toilet-trained tot!" Heck, they even offer gift certificates!
Wondering what all this might set you back? Well it ain't cheap. The recommended two-day training session costs $1,750!
But the real question we want to ask is: how comfortable are you with having a total stranger potty training your child?...
ABC News did a survey and found that 48% of parents thought toilet training was exclusively their job to handle. Which means 52% didn't?? Wow!
What do you think?
