Helpful Tips

Prepare a clear program upfront

Prepare a clear program upfront

When parents take the initiative and start toilet training, they should work according to a well-thought-out program.

Make advance preparations

Make advance preparations

Once the process is moving ahead, before taking steps like removing the diaper, it’s worth showing the child books and videos that can reinforce her know-how and awareness about toilet training and the transition to using the toilet.

Use a variety of methods and measures

Use a variety of methods and measures

Remember, there’s a great range of methods that work for some but not for others. Find the ones best for you and your kid

Don’t humiliate the child, directly or indirectly

Don’t humiliate the child, directly or indirectly

Some comments are unhelpful. For example, “Only little kids pee in their underpants.” Or, “Younger kids than you are out of diapers already.”

Don’t use rewards too much

Don’t use rewards too much

Rewards and reinforcements can have a positive effect if the process is going well, and the child is cooperative. But when obstacles occur, if the kid no longer reacts to rewards and reinforcements, you need to stop and think what the obstacle is. Repeated attempts to offer bigger, more tempting gifts simply put pressure on the child and don’t enhance the process.

Don’t make demands of the child

Don’t make demands of the child

Parents need to remember that it’s the child’s process. He doesn’t owe anything to his parents even if he’s already shown he can control. Parents must guide, encourage, and support, but on no account should they make demands of the child in anything related to hygiene habits.

Each season may be suitable for weaning from diapers or at least for preparatory
activities regarding the subject, but, naturally, the hot seasons of the year in
