Potty Train Your Toddler in Only 3 Days
Potty train your toddler in only 3 days. It doesn’t doesn’t have to be difficult. Now I know this sounds to good to be true, but stick with me and I’ll show you how you can potty train your toddler in only 3 days. First, let’s get a few potty training myths out of the way.
I’m not going to sugarcoat anything, but will instead tell you how things really are. The truth is that potty training your toddler is secretly every parents nightmare, and probably won’t be a fun experience for you at first.
So let’s begin shall we…
Myth 1: Having Them Sit On A Potty Chair Will Magically Potty Train Your Toddler
Many parents have been wrongly lead to believe that simply placing their child on the potty chair will somehow potty train your toddler. In reality, this confuses the child further and slow the process down.
Sometimes they will go potty on the chair if they just happen to be sitting on it. But they will also still go in their diaper if they happen to be in that. This gives your toddler no clear direction on what to actually do when they have to use the potty.
Myth 2: Potty Training Your Toddler is a Time of Conflict and Stress
Completely Wrong! It should instead be the opposite of conflict and stress. Potty training your toddler can be both a fun and rewarding experience for both you and them. You just have to make sure that you take the right approach.
When the correct approach is taken, it should be fun and easy to potty train even a resistant toddler.
Myth 3: Childcare and Daycare Will Help Potty Train Your Toddler
I hate to say it, but if you believe this myth then you are in for a rude awakening!
The truth is that more and more daycares are actually requiring that children are potty trained before they are allowed to be enrolled. So if you are expecting them to potty train your toddler then you need a reality check.
Now there are still a few that offer to help use a one size fits all approach. But this will cause conflict, and confuse your child when it comes to potty training at home.
Myth 4: Leaving Them In A Soiled Diaper Will Prevent Them From Having Accidents
Never leave your child in soiled diapers! I’m not sure why this myth is so wide spread because this is a dangerous thing that can lead to infections and rash.
This will only do the opposite of potty training your toddler. It will instead re-inforce that it’s ok to have a dirty diaper.
Our natural instinct is to never pee or poop on ourselves, and this is true even in toddlers and infants.
Myth 5: Boys are Harder to Potty Train Than Girls
This is probably the oldest and most widespread myth when it comes to potty training your toddler for good. The honest to goodness truth is that the experience can be exactly the same no matter the gender of your child.
Too many parents tend to overcomplicate things when it comes to potty training a boy when they should be dealt with exactly the same as when potty training a girl.
This myth is probably the most common because it tends to be more of a mothers role to potty train. When it comes to getting their son to use the potty, the mom may not feel as comfortable as if it was their daughter.
