  • Nope and takes the patience of Job! Try to keep it fun and remember that you are trying to teach a child what you want them to do not what they want to do.

  • Really? All I did was hang around and wait for my kids to figure it out. Ta da. End of effort on my part, 100% within the control of the person in control of the bladder/bowel in the first place, and I didn't even have to buy an M&M.

  • I have a great idea! Let the men teach the boys and the mom's teach the girls. Or send them outside to pee on a tree like my Husband learned from his dad! Or you can let them run bare bottom and buy your own Wet Vac! In the long run, Wet Vac's are cheaper than dipers! LOL So many choices these days! LOL I just remember, a friend brough a book home from the library about Going Potty. She read the story with her daughter and she went in to the bathroom to do what the book said because she wanted to be a big girl!
