When my first-born was two, I was pregnant with my second child. Concerned about having two kids in diapers, I decided it was time to try potty training. So I read the books, researched online and tried it all – I mean, ALL of it. I tried allowing my rambunctious boy to be naked and sit on the portable potty chair, I bribed him with toys, I enticed with a brand new potty seat.
I let him pick out his own underwear – he opted for Batman and Spiderman of course. We’d sing the potty song when he managed to aim for the toilet rather than the floor. His older cousin even tried to teach him to go potty.
But what I learned after many attempts was simple – he’ll go when he’s ready!
