What are some good methods or tips for potty training a girl?
girl or boy I still think the best thing to do is never shut the bathroom door...just let them toddle after you and you talk about how much better it is to use the bathroom than to go around in wet britches!
My husband and I never made faces or said ugh when changing diapers, just let them see what was really going on and before they were one year old both of them were out of diapers, might say we were just lucky?
I think kids know what you are saying and doing long before they are able to articulate themselves dont you?
I took my daughter to the store and allowed her to pick out her own "big girl undies," whatever design she liked, so she was excited to wear them. I washed them and took a Saturday we didn't have to go anywhere to potty train. I put them on her, explained to her that she would need to go to the bathroom before anything comes out because she is no longer a baby and doesn't need diapers.
First she peed herself and freaked out and cried, she did not like the feeling. I told her calmly that this is what happens if you don't make it to the bathroom in time since these are not like diapers. I put another pair on her and she had the other type of accident in them, really did not like that at all. That was it! Those two accidents were enough, she connected that she did not like that feeling and started getting to the potty on time.
In one day she was completely potty trained. She never even wore diapers to bed, and never had a problem wetting the bed. She was just over 2 years old when I did this. I have found this approach to work with a lot of things with her. If she is able to experience something (in a safe way of course) and see it is not enjoyable or good, she will not want to do it again. I believe in allowing them to make decisions and experience consequences as long as there is no danger in it.

Do you think that children should be potty trained before 2?I am concerned that children are being allowed to wear diapers longer and longer. In my opinion potty training is best done early as a natural part of taking care of one's body to promote self esteem. Pampers and Huggies are...

My oldest daughter is two now, and her daycare says that they want to have all their kids potty trained by the time they're 3. I don't want to rush her into anything, but just recently, I started thinking maybe she was getting ready to try. She kept pulling her pants down and taking her diaper off....
