Pros of the potty practice method. This method can easily fit into a today's family's busy schedules. With some planning, some structure can be created around the practice sessions i.e. in the morning and in the evening. Is done gradually over time.
The researchers tested two counting methods in a study of 40 children who played a 100-space board game designed by the researchers to mimic products like Chutes & Ladders. In the first method, referred to as "count-from-1," children started counting from the number one each time they moved a piece. In the other method, students would "count on" from the actual numerical place of their latest landing spot in the game. So a child who had moved her piece 15 spaces would "count-on" from 16 during her next move.
