Potty-training is fun times, right? Not. We all want to figure out the “hook” of what will get our kid to abandon diapers forever. It’s a very stressful period for parents. During this time, you could be spending hours in the bathroom: sitting, waiting, hoping, praying, coaxing, begging, and bargaining with your toddler to go.
One thing that helped us greatly in training our oldest was by bribing him with YouTube videos. He could sit there endlessly watching steam trains, boat launches, and airplanes taking off and landing. It worked for us, but of course, there were consequences. Now every time he has to go he calls out, “VIDEOS!!”
I finally got him to try a few new things on the potty. It’s good to have a variety of tools at your disposal (no pun intended).
Hey, we all do stuff on the toilet, don’t deny it! In fact I’m … never mind. TMI.
