Since we have all personally gone through potty training and we will all have to go through it with our kids, you’d think we’d have nailed down one, surefire potty training method.
But the 11,000 google results you get when you type in ‘How to potty train my child,’ clearly shows that a one-size-fits-all approach is about as likely as you getting a 5-minute shower with no disruptions.
There is no magic potty training method. And sometimes it feels like you’ll still be sitting with your child and wiping their butt when they go off to college!
So Many Methods, So Many Questions
- Potty-train in 3 days or wait till they lead, even if they are 7.
- Will pee but won’t poop.
- Is fine at home but won’t pee at pre-school.
- Pull-ups or bare bums?
The questions are endless.
Which is why we get wholly confused, flabbergasted, frustrated, impatient and exhausted when it comes to potty training.
Does this rite of passage have to be so arrrgh?
But no matter which potty training method or approach you lean towards we’ll show you how you can laugh, play and cry your way to the potty and back. You’ll discover…
- Play methods you can use to reduce potty pressure and power battles.
- What to expect from the potty training years, whichever method you choose.
- Why we veer clear of rewards and use laughter instead
- A slowly-slowly approach that really works with fearful kids
