Potty Training



I am done!! DONE! DONE! DONE! Potty Training is the worst. I remember with Dallin I was at a loss and then a pediatricians wife recommended this book and its my golden ticket. I really feel like all I have to do is be done potty training and parenting is all smooth sailing from there. I know some people are worried about drugs and sex and teenagers but to me that would be a cake walk now that I have conquered this. The book says potty train in less than a day but for me its more like three. I do it right and we do it right the first time and then its over with. Kids get mixed messages. If parents give up and put a diaper back on. If they put a diaper on at bed time. If they don't practice with them every time they have a mistake then that just makes the learning process that much harder and potty training can go on for over a year. I consider my kids potty trained when they go to the bathroom all by themselves no help. Lots of parents are stressed out cause they follow their kids around all day asking them if they need to go. Then they never know how to do it on their own. For the first week we use loose underwear so its easier for them to get off and they dont wear pants till they get it down. This time with Derek I had him wear his sisters old underwear. But he was a quick learner and now he is potty trained. I am soooo happy and relieved. I love that I will never do diapers again. !!! He goes all by himself like a big boy. And he even tells me when he has to go at the store.

Lol Stephanie I knew what you meant. But your going to be a principal one day. You will have hundreds of kids names to work on remembering. Or at least the kids that are bad and in your office often.
