Taking Positive Reinforcement to Extremes

So the other night at Easter Dinner, on of the parents there of twin boys proudly told everyone that she gives her sons candy every time they poop in the toilet. I'm not  a parent and I'm sure potty training can be challenging, but this seems like a case of taking positive reinforcement to extremes. Sounds like a load of crap to me...

I wonder what will happen when the boys are no longer rewarded with sweets...I'm sure it will leave a bad taste in these parents' mouths...
