With so much information available to new parents, it can be very overwhelming to distinguish between fact and fiction. Potty training can be especially stressful when you’re trying to get a child ready to start preschool, go on a vacation or have another baby on the way.
The first secret it to flip your idea of this process. You will not be potty training. Your child will be potty learning. This is not an adult-directed activity; this is your child learning independence. Your child’s body (with the help of her mind) will be learning how to control this bodily function. The good news is that this is something innate and natural.
