Bring the Potty Everywhere You Go


Bring the training toilet into whatever room you and your child happen to be in. At regular intervals, sit your child on the toilet, whether he thinks he has to go or not. Sometimes the mere act of going on the potty is enough excitement to make your child want to keep doing it.

One mom says, "When I potty trained my daughter, we took the potty chair all over the house. If I was in the kitchen, so was she and the potty chair. Every half hour or so, I would put her on it, and sometimes she would surprise herself and go! Then it was exciting for her. Within about a week, she had graduated to the regular toilet, and never had an accident after that."
