There is a wrong way and a right way to potty train your toddler, did you know this? Believe it or not there is. Parents can always use some helpful hints and some ideas at this time their child’s life; I know that I could have.
The most important thing to do when you potty train your toddler is to encourage, encourage, and encourage. It is best of you stay focused on the positive rather then the negative. You need to first get your toddler ready by getting your toddler used to the bathroom. When they get close encourage then by being truly positive or some parents use a sticker chart. Remember that there will be some accidents, but do not over react to this. If you over react the whole potty training process could drag on longer then it needs to.
It is a great idea to take your toddler with you when you go to the bathroom, this is because toddlers like to do everything that you do. When your toddler sees what you do in the bathroom they will also want to do it and feel more at ease when they try to go to the potty. Use a teddy bear or a doll and pretend that they are using the potty, some toddlers will understand from this. Make certain that every time that your toddler uses the potty, reward them with lots of praise, stickers, or wheatever you have decided.
Potty training needs to be done in a stress free environment. Another thing is that your toddler will not potty train until they are ready and no sooner. If your toddler does not potty train right away, they may not be ready. Wait a few more weeks of this happens then try it again. Remember that is important that you are never negative while you potty train your toddler, sooner or later they will learn how to do it.
