Re: potty training

I set my kids on the toilet seat backward. Straddling the bowl, facing the tank and put coloring books and crayons on top of the tank. Sitting that way they didn't have to hold themselves up or try to balance and they would just sit there and color for the longest time. As soon as they "went" it was party time! Clapping and hugs and kisses and a special treat. They both loved goldfish crackers so that was their special potty treat when they were successful. Good luck and remember that you can have a party everyday while you are potty training your child.
