“I’m doing something that I shouldn’t be doing, which is bribing them with M&M’s. But it’s do or die at this point! I’m like, ‘If you go pee pee on the potty, you get an M&M,’ and they keep going, ‘On a plate?’ So every time they go I get the biggest plate I can find [and] put one M&M in the middle of it.”

With the New Year here, so comes our New Years resolutions!
Most people have things like:
- spend more time with family
- lose weight
- quit smoking
- enjoy life – work less
- get out of debt
But for mother’s of toddler boys and girls, these goals will probably include potty training! Here are some great tips to getting your toddler potty trained this year.
Typically when potty training begins, it can take a lot of time and most parents cannot spend every minute in the bathroom. Whether you have one child or multiple children, spending every second of the day in the bathroom is not possible.
If you are potty training and your child is going through a stressful time, they may not want to potty train any longer during this period. Stress can come in a number of ways for a child, whether it is because they are sick, a pet has passed away, a baby is being born, their has a been a separation or divorce or even moving to a new home, the stress this can cause them many times will result in your child not wanting to use the potty.
Many parents go through the problem of a child holding their pee, you are not alone.
The child at first is very respective to using their potty chair or potty seat and then suddenly something changes and they no longer will go on the potty. This is normal, although not a good thing to have happen, when a child is holding their pee, since this can cause other problems as well as mean that accidents are more likely to happen.
Sign language can be used with younger children, especially when as a parent we are eager to get our children out of the diapers and potty trained. Sign language to teach potty training and other skills was created over 20 years ago to use with babies.
You may have heard that potty training boys is so much more difficult that potty training girls. This is not necessarily true and the biggest difference is that boys stand to pee and sit to poop. Which means teaching one and than the other later on.
Baby or infant potty training can be very effective and many parents have their baby potty trained before they are a year old. This can be a great advantage to many parents that need to go back to work after having a child, since it will cut back on the day care expense and the expense of buying diapers and baby wipes all the time.
