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.
