One of the biggest beefs that many parents have with using rewards for potty training is that they think that their child will ALWAYS require to earn a reward in order to go pee pee on the potty, and that’s just not the case.
As you know, I’m a big fan of using rewards, especially for potty training, so today I want to guide you on how to effectively decrease those rewards after potty training is over.
Let’s go to the show.
It’s nice to...
I asked this very question to my husband, and that’s what I want to share with you today.
Plus, I want to let you in on the reasons that this strategy is his favorite strategy, to really let you see that parenting doesn’t have to be hard, using good parenting strategies can be effective, and that you can actually enjoy your parenting.
Let’s get right to it. Let’s head to the show.

There’s a lot more to potty training than just the typical stuff that gets talked about. There’s more to it than readiness signs, how to respond to accidents, and what method to use.
Like last week, this episode will be very helpful if this is your first time potty training.
So let’s get to it. Let’s go to the show.
We talk a lot about potty training: the how-to, readiness signs, how long it will take.
We think about the process and what life will look like during that process when you’re actively potty training your child.
We also think about AFTER potty training is over… what life will be like, the freedom you’ll have from not having to change diapers, the money that you’ll save from not having to buy those diapers.
How do you know when you’re done with potty training? When can you officially say you’re done training?
That’s what we’ll be talking about today. Let’s head to the show.
Even when your toddler is whining… Even when your toddler is having a tantrum… Even when you’re trying to do 30 billion things at once AND deal with the kids who aren’t sharing or taking turns…
You can find ease and joy and peace in your parenting… EVEN when you’ve got littles at home… Even if they do behaviors that drive you nuts… Even if you currently feel stretched thin.
But how is that possible, you may ask.
There is a truth to your child’s behavior that you have to keep in mind when you’re in the thick of it, when you’re dealing with the messy house, when you’re again dealing with that typical toddler tantrum.
I’m here to empower you in your own parenting, so let’s do that today. Let’s go to the show.
It’s potty training season and I’m a big, big fan of the potty training schedule method in which your child sits on the potty based off of a schedule, which is signaled by a timer.
One of the reasons why I love this method is because it tells both the child and the parent when it’s time to sit on the potty, and you can easily see where your child is making improvements in their potty training journey.
Alright, let’s get to it. Let’s head to the show.

What do you do when you’re dealing with the same behavior in the same situation day after day after day?
When you’ve got these recurring behavior episodes, even if they seem to be pretty mild situations, it can be so easy for your brain to land in the trap of negativity and feelings of loneliness.
So what do you do? What do you do when you have negative behavior on repeat? This is what we’ll be talking about in today’s episode.
Now it’s time to take back some control. Let’s go to the show.
If you plan to potty train your toddler this summer, this episode is for you.

I’m a big fan of rewards, I used rewards to potty train my now 4 year old son, and I will definitely be using rewards when I potty train my 2 year-old daughter. But here’s the thing about rewards… They can work really really well at helping your child learn a new skill - in this case potty training- but we have to use them in the right way.
It’s not rocket science, but you don’t know what you don’t know, right?!
Now onto the two keys when using rewards in potty training. Let’s head to the show.
