They say when training a toddler, it takes 3 days to make or break a habit.
I'm sure there are many arguments for and against this notion but I'm here to tell you that it works.
Well, at least with my child. I'm not so entirely sure it works on me.
Most of the time we don't even realise that we are creating bad habits - but we suffer greatly when it comes to breaking them. I constantly hear myself say "I quit smoking two years ago" - but that's mostly when I'm about to light up my third cigarette in a row.
