Potty training can be considered as the most difficult milestone to be achieved for the parents. Many of us get frustrated when it comes to changing soiled and smelly diapers. We eagerly wait for that one day when our child can come and tell you that he/she wants to use the bathroom for urine/stools. Well it is time to throw away disappointment and adopt steps that can change this whole episode to a favorable one for both the child and the parent.

The first tip which is of high importance is to know when to start the training process. Look out for the signs of readiness from your kid and then start the whole process of potty training. When you start before this, it is likely for the child to throw tantrums and get frustrated and this could lead to you as a parent losing your patience.

The initial equipment that you buy for your child should create interest in them as well as provide them comfort. If he/she is interested in music you can probably go for a musical instrument. Even if they do not want to sit on it for potty, the instrument may make them want to use it. Also take care to buy the right size potty.

Understand that potty training takes time and allow space for your child as well. Do not force or pressure your child. Try and go along in the pace that your child is comfortable with. More importantly, when your child is not able to express it, do not punish, criticize, scream or scold them. This can put them off mentally. Go slow and try to make them understand. It takes a lot of patience, love and understanding. If, at any stage, it becomes too tiring for the child, put off the process for the time being.

Yet another important rule to follow in potty training is to be consistent and create a routine. You are the best person to chart his potty time. Observe the trend and choose a time when he/she is likely to pass. It could be immediately after they wake up, during bath time, after they brush their teeth, after breakfast etc. Make sure that he/she sits on the potty at this time, and in time they should get used to the routine.

Slowly encourage them to ditch diapers and start using the potty when they get the urge to pass urine/stools. When they start understanding and implementing this, be sure to praise them every time for their efforts. Even if sometimes they fail, do not get angry, but on the other hand tell him it’s ok that he missed and to be more careful next time.
Use creative methods to introduce potty training to your child. Some of these could be:

•    Fun using the flush
•    Creative games for the process
•    Stories introducing the process
•    Rewards and praises
•    Colorful and musical pots
•    Giving them stickers on a board that can be traded for gifts
•    Favorite books to read during potty time
