There are 3 specific things you should NOT do when potty training your toddler.
How do I know?
Well, truth be told, I have never personally potty trained any of my 4 children. I did elimination communication with each one and started them at birth, and I never had to actually potty train any of them.
I’ve used elements of potty training to help teach them to move to the bathroom, to tell me every time, and to teach them certain little steps to help wrap up EC with them, but never trained start to finish.
That said, I have helped 1,000s of parents worldwide toilet train their toddlers by researching the heck out of it, using what I know about EC and babies and toddler development, and doing what I do best: simplifying something I’ve researched to make it easier for parents to do it, and do it well. It is my biggest talent: distilling knowledge.
From all this work over the past several years, I’ve noticed 3 things you should definitely not do when potty training a kiddo. Watch this 4-minute video to learn what those things are:
In it, we’ll cover a bunch of stuff that I can’t tell you right now or it will ruin the surprises in the video!
After you’ve watched it...
Please leave a comment below with whether you’ve made any of these choices and whether they backfired (or not).
Or simply share whatever nugget you took away from this video, and what you intend to do about it.)
Again, this is a judgment-free zone! Thank you in advance! :)
