Potty Training Success

5 Dec


Toilet handle
This Friday and Saturday (4th and 5th December 2009) Stephen chose to go to the loo/toilet on his own.

Sure there was one mis-hap which is all part of the learning process.

Well done BIG Guy.
Success for us came about from:

  • Non conflicting ideas about potty training
  • Lead by example
  • Ask – don’t force
  • Encouragement and Affirmation

    So it took six months? Yikes! Our soon-to-be-two-year-old (on Christmas Day!) will be starting his training shortly.

    I loved “lead by example.” LOL. He likes to go in and watch me. But has yet to express the desire to actually model me. God-willing, it’s soon.

      lol, yes, lead by example and with explanation – ha ha ha. thank goodness there instructional videos out there 😛

      fortunately it in time for Stephen to get confident by the time the next one arrives in April. Two kids in nappies has got to be a nightmare :O
