7 Effective Potty Training Methods for Busy Parents ...


Potty Training seems practically impossible when I'm working full-time, going to school, trying to maintain a household, and be a Mom all in one!

My schedule gets booked within minutes of my eyes opening for the morning.

But, I learned a few potty training methods that I would like to share with my fellow busy parents that helped me tremendously!

1. Demonstrate

Kids learn from what they see, so by showing my son how to correctly go to the bathroom and in a timely manner, it not only encourages him to go, but it also lets me take the time to bond with my child even with a busy schedule.

Don't do the potty dance, then rush into the bathroom at the last second...

this is one potty training tip I don't recommend!

2. Communication

I don't know how all parents schedules are but, for my Husband and I, we took "shifts" on potty training.

When I would be home with my Son I would continue our one routine that both my Husband and I used.2

And, when my Husband came home from work and it was my turn to leave for work or do errands.

I communicated with my Husband and we kept tabs on how far we got in our training.

And, did what method worked, what didn't work.

3. Repetition

Another key to potty training is repetition.

With my busy schedule its hard to do things extensively but, making the time to repeat this important step would make potty training easier.

I would take my 2 year old every thirty minutes to go to the bathroom, even though my Pediatrician said an hour or an hour an half would also work, I was nervous for the "accidents" that may occur.

I was just being proactive.

But, it worked!
