There is a wrong way and a right way to bout potty training girls, did you know this? Believe it or not there is. Any parent can use some advice when their child is in this stage of their lives; I could have for sure.
The most important thing to do when you potty train your toddler is to encourage, encourage, and encourage. It is best of you stay focused on the positive rather then the negative. The first step is to get your toddler used to being in the bathroom. When your toddler has come close encourage them by being positive some parents find it easier by having a sticker chart. Keep in mind to never over react to accidents, there will be some for sure. If you over react the whole potty training process could drag on longer then it needs to.
It is a great idea to take your toddler with you when you go to the bathroom, this is because toddlers like to do everything that you do. When your toddler sees what you do in the bathroom they will also want to do it and feel more at ease when they try to go to the potty. Use a teddy bear or a doll and pretend that they are using the potty, some toddlers will understand from this. Be sure that ever time that your toddler uses the potty and only of they do, reward them with praise, or stickers, whatever you have decided that the reward will be.
Potty training needs to be done in a stress free environment. Also it needs to be done when your toddler is ready, not you. If your toddler does not potty train right away, they may not be ready. Wait a few more weeks of this happens then try it again. Never be negative when potty training your toddler, they will pick up on it
