Toilet Training Your Child? 3 Tips Parents Should Use To Make The Process Go Smoother

When you’re toilet training your child, do you often get advice and tips on how to make the process go easier? Many times, relatives and friends will offer their two cents worth about how to potty train a child. You may feel overwhelmed by the plethora of information you are given; more so, if the information you are given contradicts one another.   Here’s my 3 Tips   1 – Be Consistent In Every Environment It’s so important that you stay consistent in every environment he/she is in. The environments include home (both homes if the parents are no longer together), school, daycare, church, etc. If the same attention is not applied consistently throughout the process, the child will be slower in being potty trained due to the confusion he/she feels. Make sure everybody is on the same wavelength during this time. Be sure that you have a consistent toilet […]

Potty Training Boys – 5 Tips Parents Can Use To Ensure The Process Is Successful

Potty training is no simple feat. And, when it comes to potty training boys, it usually takes more time than it does with girls. Want to know how to potty train a boy quicker?   1 – Use Incentives To Motivate Them A huge motivator for boys is to purchase big boy underwear, which can be found in a number of colors and styles. If your boy loves Disney movies, consider purchasing him Disney-related underwear. No doubt, he’ll want to use them instead of the diaper. Let your son know that if doesn’t feel like taking off his new underwear, he should go sit on the toilet when the need to go hits him. Place your son on the toilet every 30 minutes to set up a routine. Yes, it’ll be a little inconvenient. However, it allows him the experience to sit on the potty, wiping himself and flushing the […]

3 Potty Training Tips To Stop Children From Wetting Their Pants

It’s quite normal for children between the ages of two and three to wet their pants. And, the reason for this is the age in which children gain control over their bladder. For parents, it can be rather frustrating to have a child so close to being potty trained, only to have them regress back into wetting their pants. Here’s what you need to remember: every child is different, which means every child learns at his/her own speed. Forcing them to do something they are not ready to do will cause them to take a step backwards. Still, there are things you can do to keep them moving forward and not experience wetting accidents.   Weekend Toilet Training Can Happen How many times have you heard that a parent toilet trained their child in one weekend?

Potty Training Techniques: The Right (And Wrong) Ways Between Boys and Girls!

  One of the most commonly questions asked by parent’s deals with potty training and how it differs between boys and girls. The most often heard “fact” that parents quote about toilet training is that girls are easier to potty train. I am not so sure about the truth in this seeing as nothing is ever black and white. When it comes to raising kids, most aspects are pretty individual so can we really say that teaching one gender something is harder than the other gender? I simply don’t think so, but let’s look at the evidence! Each child is individual and there are different techniques that they will respond to. Granted that boys respond better to different techniques than girls do and vice versa, there really is nothing set in stone. Having said that, I will share with you the very best advice that I have and show you […]
