"Sensitive, intensely emotional, and severely lacking in impulse control, toddlers often have “unusual” ways of expressing their needs and feelings. If it’s any consolation, these behaviors don’t make sense to our children either.

More simply: children are easily overwhelmed by impulses bigger and stronger than they are.”
"According to the book, going diaper free eliminates the need for most potty training. Infants who spend all day in their diapers get out of tune with their bodies and learn to ignore their need to eliminate. They learn to just go without communicating their needs. And they get used to walking around in a toilet, so when i’s time to take their diaper away, it becomes very difficult to relearn how to pay attention to this need and do something about it. They’ve lost that connection, and they get used to thinking cloths are for poo and pee. The diaper free approach takes that away, so infants already know how to communicate and end up potty trained by the time they’re around nine months old.”
