The Way You Think About Potty Training Boys And Girls

Change Your Thinking

Change the way you think is a big topic these days. People are being told to change the way they think in order to improve their health. I say that parents need to change the way they think about potty training in order to get their child potty trained.

Children are very susceptible to people’s emotions, and often your emotions are affected by your thoughts. Whenever you are potty training your child and you become frustrated you need to take a step back and re-evaluate your thoughts. Get yourself back into a positive mindset and then start to potty training your child again.

In my e-book I mention that you need to let your child use a toy to learn how to use the potty. This imaginative role-playing will teach you many things. It will teach you about yourself and what you are saying to your child as you teach him to use the potty.

If you see a negative image from this role playing you need to go back and re-examine what you were thinking when you started to potty train your child. Are you dwelling on anything negative or are you remembering a story about potty training that was not successful?

If the answer is yes to the question above, you need to stop what you are thinking and change the thought. To do this you need to focus on the goal you wish to accomplish by picturing in your mind having a potty trained child. Go ahead and get the feeling of what it will be like when you no longer have to buy diapers. Doesn't it feel wonderful?

Now that you have that feeling, get a picture of a child using the potty and place it, with your child’s name on it, on the wall behind the potty. Every time you take your child to the potty or you go to the potty yourself, look at that picture and get the positive thought and feeling in your mind. This will help you to stay focused and will create a positive environment your child to be successful with potty training.

Once again, stay focused on the positive thought and feeling.

    You make a great point about positive thought and feeling. I used the Pot-Tee Prize Grab bag to help with potty training my two children. (www.pot-teeprize.com) They loved the stickers, the prizes and proudly displayed the diploma when they "graduated."

    Thank you very much for a fine read. Children are so wonderful and sometimes training them can get somewhat frustrating.

    Keep up the good work.
