So the time has come for us to start actively potty training our little guy. He’s ripping the diapers off and sitting in the potty. He’s been wiping himself and throwing toilet paper in the toilet since he was about 15 months. He knows his body part pretty well, especially his ooo booty. We keep the potty out in the living room, but he never goes in it. We tell him, “Go pee pee in the potty.” He’ll sit down, hop off, and minutes later he’s going on the floor!
My mother said I potty trained fairly easy before I was 2. One day she looked up and I had gone numero dos in the toilet! I do realize boys are different and I’m willing to accept that challenge. We’ve reviewed The Potty Tots system when Jay was younger. I think it is great for older children. Jayden’s unpredictable attention span just can’t handle it right now. I honestly think he’ll train before being able to understand story lines and reward charts. We’re thinking about getting him something like this. Sometimes kids want the real thing. They want to be just like mommy and daddy, so maybe if we put him directly on the toilet, he’ll be more likely to go.
Have you gotten your potty training degree? What worked for your kiddos?
