How to Potty Train your Toddler Children go through a lot of milestones early in their life and one of the most important things is potty training. Toilet training means teaching your children how to go to the toilet when they have the urge to go number 1 or 2. Potty training can either be a nightmare for some parents, while others may say that it isn’t actually a hard task to do. In reality, this is actually quite a simple task to do as long as the parents know how to properly do it. Is it really that hard to toilet train toddlers? The biggest mistake that parents make and probably the main reason why they find toilet training hard is that they force their children. Being potty trained is one of the biggest achievements in a toddler’s life, it is not determined by age and it is by no means a contest. The most important thing to consider is the readiness of the toddler to do the task.

Short Course on Tips – What You Need To Know
Do you see any signs that your child is interested in going to the toilet by themselves? See if your child gives you any warning or signals that they want to go to the toilet. Do you see your child showing interest in the toilet or potty? Do you see your child showing discomfort with his diaper? Does he know how to take off or pull down his underwear? When you notice all the mentioned things in your child, chances are he or she is already ready to start potty training. Ways to Teach your Children 1. Communication The first thing you need to do when you start potty training is to talk to your child and explain how the bathroom is used correctly. Making your child is crucial to the whole potty training process, without them understanding it will definitely be a difficult task to achieve. You need to talk to them and show the bathroom, let them be familiar with the toilet and how to flush it. The cool sound that the toilet makes when flushed gets children excited to go and pee in it and flush the toilet by themselves. Pictures Children are very visual and learn how to follow instructions faster when shown images and photos. The visual aids will help your child learn quicker. Take the Diaper off This is probably the hardest part of the process because there will be a lot of accidents, wet floors and a lot of cleaning to do. When at home, do not let the toddler wear diapers because it makes them think about where else to put their waste, making them look for a new place to poo or pee. Appreciate and Reward Efforts When your child accidentally pees themselves, do not scold them and when they go to the toilet, appreciate their efforts every time. Keep these in mind and toilet training will be a breeze.
