potty pooper - how to keep his interest in pottying
my son is 3 years old and has been potty training on and off since 18 months when he first showed interest. the on and off has largely been because his interest in it goes up and down. it was way down for a while because he was afraid of the loudness of public toilets flushing. we seem to have found the solution to that - whenever we're out i don't flush the toilet until after he leaves the stall. when he moved over to the preschool room at day care, his interest shot way up and we've got him in underwear. only now it's on its way down, and he's been choosing pull ups or even diapers during the day. (giving him choices is our primary way to avoid power struggles and tantrums and it works for us.)
i could use some ideas for how to get him interested again. i would love to hear a lot of ideas from you about incentives you used because once i try one it will only work for about a week or so. that's how long the sticker potty chart worked at home. please, what incentives have you used to get/keep your child interested in using the potty? thank you!
