What potty training methods worked for your Child?
I recently wrote a hub entitled "Potty Training Your Insane 2 Year Old" where I discuss different techniques I have been using in an attempt to potty train my young son. What has worked or not worked for you in this effort with your own kids?
My oldest son was about to turn 3. We were throwing a pool party for him. His best friend was 2 months older than he was and had been potty trained for 6 months. When I mentioned how embarrassing it would be for him to be wearing a diaper while Sammi wore a bathing suit he got on board and wore his own bathing suit to his party. Instant potty training!
PS I don't think it is so much that they have to be trained as they need incentive to let go of the diapers. It is, afterall, easier to do your business in a diaper than to have to stop what you are doing and find a toilet.
When my first child was little and it was just her and me at home she loved to watch Barney. One day, I decided to set up her potty chair in the living room and let her sit on it while she watched cartoons. I listened carefully and when I heard her pee, I got all excited and asked her if she peed in the potty. She realized she did and I told her what a good girl she was and gave her a glass of her favorite juice.
After about the first 3 times of doing it by accident and me making a big happy moment from it, she started doing it on purpose and telling me when she did it.
I know it's non-conventional but it worked.
