Potty training becoming a boring and painful task to deal with, especially because your child has no interest in it? Learn how to make it fun and exciting for your kids, so they can enjoy this essential life-lesson.
Learning to use the potty can and should be an exciting adventure in the life of a toddler. Hey, it’s a big deal and should be treated as one! Making it fun and exciting — that’s the secret to keeping your toddler interested in using the potty and ultimately being diaper-free.
What’s so exciting about the potty
The key to igniting passion in a child (or anyone for that matter) is to letting them know what’s in it for them. What personal satisfaction will they get out of it? So when it comes to potty training, you need to make sure your toddler is constantly aware of the joys, rewards and satisfaction that comes with using the potty. Here’s how:
- Make it a source of pride: Using the potty is such a big boy/girl thing to do!
- Make it appealing: When they use the potty instead of their diaper or undies, they are praised and rewarded.
- Make it practical: When you don’t have to lug diapers and wipes around, you have room for them to take a favorite toy or a healthy snack on errands or to the park
- Make it fun: Having fun-looking undies to wear each day is a lot cooler than bulky old diapers.
