Why you should potty train now

Most of us have been affected somehow by the economy. So what if you have a child on the verge of potty training? Do you hold off because you are in a comfort zone and don't have time to focus on potty training?

If you and your child are in the process of getting ready to potty train now is the time to get serious about it. Why? Because for one, you Are going to save money!

No more diapers, wipes, ointments, big bulky diaper bags and searching for a place to change a diaper when you are not at home! Potty training saves your sanity.

Some childcare facilities will charge you less when your child is potty trained. Imagine being able to forget about childcare and getting your child in a preschool or even Headstart.

I have been asked lately about various potty training programs. These are from people who have no idea that I co-own a potty training site along with my friend Janice.

I have been looking into other programs that are supposed to offer potty training in 3 days or less. This is great if you are a mom who stays at home long enough to dedicate yourself to the one child or possibly two who are ready to potty train. Chances are you are not one who really has the time or possibly the support to get it done very quickly.

Our program is designed to work in 3 days, 4 days, 5 days or even a week. It is up to you how much time you are willing to put into it. We have solutions for most of the problems that arise when you are potty training. Since I am a single mom I wanted to include a section for moms who may not have support. Janice has worked with moms who have children with disabilities that may affect the time it will take to get them potty trained.

Not every story is a success. Success depends on you and how much time and patience you are willing to have. Sometimes we do hear from parents who are at wits end, tried our program and are not happy. Most of them we know do not have the patience, their child or themselves were not ready to potty train.

Right now we are in a world of we want results NOW. Pushing issues like potty training are going to backfire. You must prepare yourself mentally for this process. Our program is about having that mental preparation, a positive attitude, and an understanding that there are going to be some setbacks and how to handle them. If you purchase the course, we are there to support you by answering any questions you may have.

Attitude is everything with potty training

Did you know that what you are feeling affects your child during the potty training process? Children are great at picking up body language. If you are feeling anxious, tense, or even frustrated it does not matter if you are verbally expressing feelings or not. Children pick it up anyways and the result is they resist the process.

This is why we insist both you and your child are completely ready to potty train for the process to be successful. Understand that there are going to be some setbacks, but they are a time for learning. Like anything in life this process is challenging yet it is a learning experience for both you and your child. When they do occur let your child know it is okay and that you do care about them. The greatest thing you can do for them is give them a hug. It's okay. We will try again very soon.

This also a time for unconditional love. Spanking, punishing, yelling, or any other forms of discipline are to be off limits for the process to be successful. If you are beginning to feel upset then immediately stop what you are doing and take a break. Even if it means you try again in a few days it is best to be free of any upset.

If you have a child with any disabilities patience will be a virtue. Sometimes the process takes longer than the average child though potty training success will happen.

No matter what, having a positive attitude is a must.
