Here are 10 great potty training tips from Ginsey Industries:
(1) It is Never Too Early
It really is never too early to introduce your little one to the potty. Even if they are not using the potty, it is good to make them aware of it and why their older brothers and sisters use it.
(2) Reinforcement is Key
Make sure that your little one can use the potty at home, at school, and on the road. It is easy to just opt for a diaper when traveling but Ginsey’s travel potty seats make on the go potty training easy and help reinforce what you are doing at home.
(3) Rewards are Good but not Necessary
Offering a reward tends to work with older children, but younger ones are usually just as excited as you that they are using the potty like a big girl or a big boy. We have a number of parents tell us that buying their child a Ginsey potty seat with their favorite cartoon characters on it was all the reward their child needed to succeed at potty training.
(4) It Doesn’t Always Work
Sometimes it doesn’t matter what you try. Some kids will only become potty trained on their own timetable. In these cases it is often best to simply back off and let your child make the decision to become potty trained on their own. Some children do not respond to pressure but are rather self starters who will accomplish tasks efficiently when those tasks are made their sole responsibility. My wife and I had this issue with our oldest son and we were surprised how quickly he potty trained himself once the choice was his own and not ours.
(5) Use Support Tools
Don’t try to be Supermom or Superdad. There are great potty training tools like tinkle targets, reward stickers, potty chairs, potty seats, travel potty seats and much more at your disposal. Theses tools are all available on the Ginsey.com Website and are all very cost effective. Just think of how much money you will be saving once you get your child out of diapers and on to the potty!
