Potty Training: Top 3 Tips (Round 2)

Potty Training tips I learned going into it for the second time.

 1. Grace and expectations- give yourself and them all the grace and manage your expectations. I went in with this whole idea the first time that it’ll click right away and be great. It didn’t and was not. This time, I went in knowing he’ll figure it out when he does and it’ll be fine!

2. Training potty and books are a must! Somewhere where they can easily get to and do it on their own. And books for the first few times to keep them sitting there! I don’t know about your kiddos – but sitting quietly is not really their type of thing. Training to go pee is easy – cause it’s quick. Getting them to sit there and finish their business – not so much. So books to keep them busy while sitting there is big!

3. Patience – if you’re pushing and they’re pushing back it’s just going to end miserably for everyone. For us with our first – it was tears on both sides.

We didn’t do a book, course or a certain training method but we figured it out. Jude trained a lot easier and earlier than Mal did. But he had a tiny regression whereas Mal didn’t. They both night trained themselves which was nice. But all this to say – every kid is different
