In your experience, are girls easier to potty train than boys? If so, why???

As a society, we have become very inefficient at potty training our children. A Harvard study shows that we were getting kids potty trained faster and at a much earlier age in the 1950's than we are today. Find out what we are doing wrong and why Susan Cline's amazing potty training methods are finally reversing this trend!

Only have a boy, and he just got trained literally in the past 3 weeks. He just turned 20 months.
According to my mom, this is slow as my sisters and I were all trained by 17 months. I also know a girl trained at 15 months. On the flip side I know another girl who wasn't trained until 3.

I had a few moments during training where I wished he was a girl simply because sometimes he would sit on the potty(good) and pee(also good) but he'd be pointed the wrong way and all the pee would end up in a puddle at his feet!
We bought 4 potty chairs and only 2 were well-designed enough to accommodate boys' plumbing.

So to answer your question, I think it's a myth. However potty seats are much better designed for girls.
