Getting boys potty trained can be a very trying and difficult experience. But thеsе tірs wіll hеlр to make the process trouble-free for you:
Boys Want it Their Way
Boys prefer doing things in their own ways. If you make potty training appear as if it’s their idea, they will be much more enthusiastic about it.
This new "going potty" experience will seem fun and interesting while it is fresh, like any fun game you teach your child. But, soon your son might think of it as a power game and he might not want to co-operate with you.
My son behaved like this. He grew frustrated and tired of the potty very quickly.
Once I made him understand that ‘’going to potty is what big boys do’' and asked him if he wanted to be a ‘’big boy’' he started using the potty successfully. Believe me, this was not an overnight success. We did it by trying many different things until we found the one that he believed was "his" idea.
Boys Like to Imitate
One constant behaviour among boys is they like to watch and mimic others. Тhіs іs а gеnеtіс trаіt раssеd оn frоm tіmеs whеn lеаrnіng bу іmіtаtіоn wаs thе wау оf раssіng knоwlеdgе frоm fаthеr tо sоn.
Use it to your benefit. It might be a good idea to involve dad or elder brother in the potty training process. Let them show your son how to use the toilet.
If your son has a favourite character or animal toy, use it as a demo for potty training. The trick is to use the same steps to ‘’train'' the toy as you want your son to follow through in his training.
Boys Like to Have Fun
