He can speak to the latest Tiktok trend highlighting school bathroom vandalism and how resulting restricted access by administrators harms students with urinary health issues.

His published research shows that children trained before age 2 have a much higher risk of having accidents compared to those trained later. Those trained early are more likely to become habitual holders of their pee and poop, which can lead to issues with constipation. He has authored several books for adults and children to help better understand toilet training.
