I've already written about our potty training details before. This time around with my son, I'm using a similar approach. I have to admit I feel a little more prepared for the long-haul. I'm not expecting him to be potty trained overnight (although I have a friend who was successful in 3 Day Potty Training...go Lilah!). This time I think I'm prepared for a few set-backs.
So far, we've been using the potty before bath time. He has this concept down pat. However, he isn't being rewarded like my daughter was. I think I'm going to save those for the "hardcore potty training sessions". I've heard of a couple of things to help boys use the potty.
- Float a Cheerio on the surface of the toilet water and let him "aim" for the Cheerio.
- Have him go potty when daddy goes potty.
- When outside playing, let him go behind bushes and trees.
I personally have not implemented these techniques but figured I'd keep an open-mind. I learned a long time ago to never say "never". I hope this works for me, what about you?
Do you have any tried-and-true methods for potty training little boys?
Any and all suggestions are welcome :)
