Proud Potty

Toddler Diaper Change

Potty training can be really tough. Try celebrating your child’s successful potty trips. Tell them about what they did in a proud tone: “You went to the bathroom in the potty” Invite them to tell you what they did too. Be matter-of-fact about accidents.

See what your child is learning

It’s hard work to put together the signals that your body is telling you (“I have to go pott”) with the actions of sitting in the right place, the potty, and going. When you praise your child’s effort, “You did it”, they’ll be more willing to take on the challenge.
