How do Educators make Toilet training look so effortless and easy?
We share seven effective tips that we use in our Dolphins Room:
These simple but effective tips cater for every child, including the jumping jacks that won’t still still for long.
Tip 1: Invest in some toilet training books that assimilate the noise of the toilet flushing.
Tip 2: Set a timer for every 20 mins, as a reminder to go sit on the potty or the toilet.
Tip 3: Group toilet time, bring in a sibling, have a chat.
Tip 4: Invest in a white board marker. Sit your child back to front on the toilet and let them go to town. It wipes off instantly.
Tip 5: Play You tube clips on your smart phone or ipad and singalong to their favourite songs.
Tip 6: Incentives. Make toilet training exciting. Go shopping for new undies or create a sticker chart for every time their undies are dry.
Tip 7: The key to successful, quick and effective toilet training is…. consistency!
Things to Avoid
