Â Reach for your bags of tricks to help your child stay confident during potty training!
Â • Sticker Chart Â Create a colorful and fun day-to-day chart. When your child has a successful trip to the bathroom, let him decorate the day with a sticker or even let him be the one to check the day off.
Â • BooksÂ Keep a stash of books in the bathroom that are only for use while on the toilet.
Â Get your toddler comfortable in bathroom by having him sit on the toilet fully clothed as you read a book. When he’s ready, have him sit without his pullup or diaper.
Take a trip to the bookstore and have your child pick out new books, but let him read the special potty books only when going to the bathroom.
Â • Water Colors Â Dye the toilet water with red or blue food coloring — when he goes potty it will change color to orange or green, turning training into a game. As your little boy gets older, he will love this motivation as he learns to aim.
