All parents can’t wait until their babies are potty trained, but the training process itself can be a nightmare. Kids usually are pretty reluctant to learn- after all, pooping whenever you want and having someone else wipe it up for you is a pretty sweet deal. The idea is not that hard: you sit them on the toilet and teach them that’s the time to go. In reality though, it can be so, so difficult. To avoid a large chunk of tantrums and mess, check out this post by Anne at Zephyr Hill blog for common potty training mistakes:
-Don’t be unrealistic- make no assumptions, try not to establish timelines.
-Don’t pin all your hopes on friend’s and family’s advice- every child is different.
-Don’t buy too much stuff- until you know what works for you
-Don’t lose patience and don’t take it personally!
