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...
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.
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.
I offer potty...
If you plan to potty train your toddler this summer, this episode is for you.
Let’s talk potty training. Let’s head to the show.
In my 90 Day Coaching Program for Moms I teach you the potty training method that I used to potty train my own son. For potty training and parenting support and encouragement, schedule a call with me at ...
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.
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.
Even if your potty training journey resulted in successfully potty training your toddler, there may still be some things you’d do differently,...
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.
While that seems like a great idea and an opportunity that someone should have jumped on a long time ago, the reality of it is that every child is an individual. That means they have their individual personalities, their individual preferences, their individual idiosyncrasies, and their individual needs.
It’s true for potty training as well. You may be holding a so-called potty training “manual” or book, you’ve followed it to a T, and yet your toddler is still not potty trained. What gives?
If you’re in the boat of using more of a child-led or child-initiated potty training method and it’s just not doing the trick, your toddler is still not getting the hang of it after a good consistent effort, keep listening to this episode.
Maybe you’ve never considered it but using technology as a reward within potty training may be a dang good reward for your kiddo. But what does that look like? How do you use technology as a reward in potty training?
Today on the show I’ll share how you can use technology as a reward and use it to your advantage. Of course, in my own personal and professional potty training experience, I have used technology A LOT as a reward. I’ll share how it can be done.
Now let’s talk about technology and potty training. Let’s go to the show.
