It's one of the most difficult and frustrating tasks a parent can face.
But one woman has offered to take the stress out of potty training by taking it out of parents' hands.
Mother-of-three Amanda Jenner can wean children out of nappies - but it will cost!
The UK-based potty trainer has set up the Potty Training Academy and charges parents the equivalent of $3,500 in pounds to train their toddlers.
Such is demand she has almost a year-long waiting list.

'It always works,' she says.

I grew up in New Zealand, moved to London in my early 20s to work on British newspapers then moved to Australia when I was pregnant with my first child. I write a newspaper column, celebrity interviews and a parenting page. I also do TV and radio commentary, podcasting and host corporate events. I’ve also published a book on parenting, The Smallest Things. However, my greatest role – and the one I’m most proud of – is parenting my daughters, Eliza and Lilibelle, who are 17 and 14.
