The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 164: Remember THIS about Toddler Behavior to Parent in Ease


What can you do to parent in ease? 

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.

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 163: The Potty Schedule Method How-To


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. 

So today on the show I’m going to walk you through this potty training schedule method and let you know how it works. 

Alright, let’s get to it. Let’s head to the show. 

IN THIS EPISODE:

  • Laura Lynn shares the general flow of the potty training sit schedule method;
  • She walks you through how to gradually increase the time in-between the scheduled potty sits; and
  • She explains what to do in the method if your child is having too many accidents back-to-back.

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 159: Two Essential Strategies When Using Rewards in Potty Training


Today on the show we are talking about two fundamental strategies you will want to follow if you are using rewards to potty training your toddler. 

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.

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 157: What I Would Change about My Own Potty Training Journey


Since Spring and Summer are key times for potty training for most parents, for the next foreseeable future I’ll be adding in extra potty training episodes on the podcast to give you some additional support. I’ll be talking about the how-to of potty training, using rewards, outlining when potty training is over, and describing what life really looks like when potty training is over, which will be very helpful if your child is the first one you’re potty training. Don’t forget that I do have a lot of previous episodes on potty training, so search my episodes to see if any of those episodes can give you some guidance when it comes to potty training.

But today I want to get a little personal and talk about what I would change about my own potty training journey.

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 155: The Potty Dance Dilemma: How to Get Your Child to Request the Potty


Does your toddler do the potty dance? 

Even if your child is wearing underwear and is mostly or completely potty trained, she may still be doing the potty dance. 

When she has to go potty, she may fidget and dance around. Or she may walk around in a funny way because she’s trying to hold it. Or she even could be holding herself because she has to go potty but won’t go to the bathroom, or won’t tell you. 

This is one of the MOST frequent issues that mamas come to me with. Their child is fully potty trained, she doesn’t have accidents, she’s wearing underwear all day, and yet she won’t ever tell you that she needs to go. 

Why is it that your child does this potty dance, is fully potty trained, and won’t tell you that she needs to go? And what can you do about it? That’s what we’ll be talking about today.
