The joy of every parent is to see their children shift from the stage of using diapers to potty. It is important to make the necessary preparations depending on the age of the child. As some children can begin using the potty from 18 months, while others can delay until years. Nevertheless, once the child shows signs of interest, you can start making the initial preparations. At this point, avoid having expectations and be open to upcoming problems and complications. It is imperative for you to be acquainted with your child’s mind and body development. As a parent, you should also focus on the timing and the child’s routine. As the child may not respond especially after joining preschool or when there’s a new sibling. On the other hand, you should sacrifice the time and energy required to ensure effective potty training. Mental preparation is vital as the child should be familiarized with the new change. It is crucial for the parent to be patient until the child responds to this new change. You should purchase a potty which is appealing, comfortable, and secure. You can make it more attractive by purchasing stickers for the kid to decorate and labeling his or her name on it. Hence, successful preparation of potty training depends on both parties.
