Potty Time: A Day of Potty Training

Potty Time: A Day of Potty Training


Potty training can be daunting for any new parent. The intimidation alone can delay potty training for months, as parents may not even know where to begin. New parents don’t know what to expect when potty training a toddler, or how to structure their day. So here is a sample day from a seasoned mom who used a fast-track potty training method, which focused on positive reinforcement and putting toilet training above everything else. To do this method, you’ll need to set aside a few days where you have no other goals or major responsibilities other than potty training. You probably won’t be leaving your house much because your child will be spending most of his day naked.

Potty Accident: Rushed Potty Training and the Swimming Pool


It was late one summer evening, and my wife finally caved. My daughter had asked her time and time again — as three-year-olds are known to do — to go swimming in our community pool. My wife finally agreed, and the two of them walked over to the pool. Part of the reason my wife was hesitant to go to the pool was the lack of a swim diaper. While my daughter was mostly potty trained at this point, we still had her wear a swim diaper to the pool in case there was an accident. My daughter did well using the bathroom at home but sometimes had accidents if she got too involved in a fun activity. My wife and I talked it over and decided our daughter could head to the pool without a swim diaper. We would risk it and hope she could go without an issue. We were wrong.

Are Rewards for Potty Training Necessary?


According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, behaviors are more likely to continue when followed by a positive consequence, like a reward. However, when it comes to potty training, there are opposing opinions, and both sides of the argument have valid points. This is only meant to help with a dilemma. You have to do what you believe will work for your child. Nonetheless, when I started researching whether or not to reward your child when potty training, I started questioning my own methods.
