When potty training isn't romantic

Potty training your kiddo can be messier than your love life* but it doesn't need to be. Here are three ways to keep potty training fun and productive:

  • Incentives: Is your potty training child motivated by candy or toys? Does your potty training kid prefer time at the park? Figure out what motivates your kid and communicates encouragement. Incentives can be the difference maker in your kid's potty training journey.
  • Take time to chill: Potty training can be stressful at times. Take time to step back and relax a bit. Listen to relaxing music if you need to or go for a walk. You know what's most effective for you when it comes to relieving stress.
  • Be prepared: You don't ever want to be caught in a bind because you don't have to supplies you need to clean up after a potty training accident. Here's a link on how to put an emergency kit together.

How do keep potty training from being messier than your love life?

As seen on ABC's Shark Tank, the IllumiBowl is a motion-activated toilet night light popular among potty training families and senior citizens. The IllumiBowl makes your toilet glow in order to make late night trips to the bathroom safe and easy. It's powered by three AAA batteries and attaches easily to any toilet seat. This popular product is toilet technology at its best. Who doesn't love a glowing toilet?

It’s very important to find a way of motivating kids when they’re potty training. It serves as a means of getting them to learn quickly, as they look forward to the reward after each successful attempt.

Thanks for sharing this.
