Thats how I potty trained my children, but the term these days is potty or toilet learning... LOL!

I think it triggers a memory of the sound you here while urinating and thus your learned behavior takes place, like a yawn or a trigger of a type.. its a learned associated behavior and we are creatures of habit and learn through repetition so I thing the association brings on the urge when we really already have to go, but were not paying attention!
