First off, I like to have a cutesy image for my posts, it’s a quirky habit of mine. So, to that end I searched for images of potty training, and this is was one of the first offerings:
I think that pretty much says it all for most parents. It’s generally a battle of wills between parent and child, a major headache really. Rarely is it easy and uncomplicated and everyone else has an opinion on when you should start, namely daycares and preschools. It’s a challenge that is often put off because it is difficult and won’t happen until a child is ready, even if that means waiting longer than a parent might want.
Now, all those negatives being thrown out there, I am thrilled to reveal that my 25 month hold is potty trained! Yeah! We are still working on night time, but I think that’s a long way off. However, during the day he stays dry and hasn’t had an accident in quite a while. For us it was pretty easy, he was excited to start learning, and we took it slow. We started in late July, with a few steps backwards when he returned to daycare in September. However, when we transitioned him to his new daycare everything seemed to be much easier for him there. There have been stickers and treats and bribes, and it has all worked.
Please don’t hate :)
