Ideas On How To Model Potty Train

Model potty training is the idea of using a model of some sort to teach your child how to potty train. Modeling behavior is commonly used in school for instance, when teachers show an example of the behavior they want the children in the classroom to replicate. Essentially it is teaching a child by first starting with having them mimic the behavior they are seeing. This can be a very good technique to use when potty training, especially with children that are a little over a year old that are beginning to learn. Using a role model to teach potty training can be very effective, since they can visually see what is suppose to happen and then they need to do that themselves.
