Raising a toddler comes with its own set of responsibilities and challenges. One of the many tasks, along with countless others, that parents need to train toddlers in is the art of toilet-training. It may seem a simple one but it is not.
Early childhood education specialist Samantha Allen who runs her own venture NYC Potty Training says the key to a proper toilet-training is to be consistent and have a good rapport with kids.
According to an article published in mayoclinic.org, potty training is a major milestone and its success depends on certain factors. To begin with, we look at some tips to help you provide proper toilet training for toddlers:
- Place a potty chair in the bathroom or the place where your toddler spends most of his or her time. Encourage your toddler to sit on the potty chair.
- If your toddler is okay, make him sit on the potty chair without a diaper for a few minutes, several times a day.
- When your toddler is exhibiting signs that he wants to use the toilet, respond quickly and praise him for informing you regarding the same.
- Do not overdo the training because using force will not lead to anything.
