That's like training you dog to pee in a special corner of your carpet.
Train them to use the toilet, it's where you want them to end up anyway.
Because you can't leave a toddler unattended on a regular toilet? Because it take an hour to get a drop of pee out of a toddler and I have other things to do? Because I can't move my regular toilet into the living room?
I've never heard of a child who had difficulty moving from a toddler potty to a regular potty who wouldn't have had trouble with the regular potty regardless (i.e., some kids are afraid of the big toilet, but their fear is unrelated to whether they've used a toddler potty). Admittedly, I am not a child psychologist, but of all the concerns I hear from my adolescent patients and their parents, none of them are related to lingering trauma of moving from a toddler potty to a regular one.
