Parents should not overlook the value of rewarding a child if you’d like your kid to successfully learn to pee or poo by himself. Don’t consider it a burden but instead, have fun on your own so your child won’t feel the pressure.
So what incentives can you give your child? Sweets should not be forgotten. How about giving your kid a bite sized chocolate or some M&M’s when he or she gets out of the bathroom? Other rewards that you can give although not on a daily basis can be a trip to the park or a lollipop.
Using the doll that drinks and wets can be effective as well. The idea is to let your little girl take care of the doll and let her see how it pees after drinking. You can teach your child the importance of using the toilet seat or potty chair to urinate or to poo.
If you have a daughter, you can also make her excited to potty train every day by letting her decorate her own toilet seat. The stickers are the easiest art tools you can use because your child can easily stick her favorites on the different parts of her potty seat.
