Parental tips to keep in mind during potty training:


  • Recognize that your child is in control of his or her body
  • Let your child decide whether to use the potty or a diaper/pull-up each day
  • Teach your child words for body parts, urine, and bowel movements
  • Offer your child the tools she needs to be successful at toileting (such as a small potty, potty seat, stool, etc.)
  • Expect and handle potty accidents without anger
  • Avoid punishment as well as too much praise around toilet use. (This can make children feel bad when they aren’t successful.)
  • Decide whether to use the toilet or a diaper/pull-up
  • Learn his body’s signals for when he needs to use the toilet Use the toilet at his own speed

Warm up for Potty Training:


  •  Pick the right potty
  • Approach this without a lot of emotion
  • Think of it as just another skill you are helping your child learn.
  • It is also very important not to force your child to use the potty
  • Constipation develops when children trying to regain control over their bodies by withholding urine or bowel movements.
  • Stop talking about potty training until your child shows signs of readiness.
  • Or a potty seat, which simply attaches to the toilet. Look for a stable fit
  • Look for a model that’s durable and won’t tip over when your child jumps up to check her progress.
  • If she wants to, allow her to carry around the clean potty and sit on it while clothed.
  • Keep the potty close by so your child can act on his body’s signals quickly.
  • Easy-on, easy-off clothing
  • Elastic waists are a wonderful thing
  • Offer praise when he reports bodily functions.
  • Remind him that using the potty means he’s growing up.
  • Teach to check for dryness.
  • Buy special doll that wets and encourage your child to help the doll “learn” to use the potty

Negative impacts:


  • When parents scold, punish, or shame
  • Being patient is the best way you can support your child as she learns.
  • Potty battle begins when parents expect too much too soon
  • When parents deny drinks when parents lose hope

Things to remember:

  • No matter how you do it, remember this is a learning process that takes time, with many accidents along the way.
  • Keep in mind that children with special needs may take longer to learn to use the potty. They may also need special equipment, and a lot of help and support from you.


Bye Bye……………….. Till next meet 🙂
