When my wife and I had our first child, my mom made an interesting point. Parenting never really gets easier, but the challenges change as the child changes. When they are a newborn, the struggle is to keep them fed and asleep while anticipating their needs. When they become a toddler, it is keeping them safe as they learn to navigate the world. The challenges continue as they grow. The same is true for potty training. Compared to those first days when the child sleeps at odd hours and demands food at the weirdest of times, potty training is a breeze. Parents will deal with things that are much more complicated.
