Make Your Child Feel Important


Most children want to feel "grown up" and independent. Use potty-training as a way to help your child feel proud of getting bigger and more self-sufficient.

One reader says, "After my child showed many signs of being ready, I got him pumped up for pre-school and made sure he understood that he had to go in the toilet. I put big boy underwear on him and off to school he went. Although he had an 'accident' at the end of class the first day, I told him how proud I was of him and that he can try harder each day. Since then, he has stayed dry all day and loves using the toilet."
