2. Dry & Clean
Learn the phrase – Dry & Clean and teach this to your child. Positive reinforcement is high on the list when it comes to potty training sanity savers.
Rather than worrying all the time if your child has had an accident and asking them, Did you go potty in your pants? or Did you make a mess in your underwear? or Did you have an accident?
Instead just say, Let’s stay dry & clean all day! Help your child work on staying dry & clean all day and then you can reward them for their efforts.
2. Use A Reward They Like
My favorite potty training sanity savers is very simple, just use a reward they like! Mom, do yourself a big favor and figure out what motivates your child. Pick a reward that they will like. Not just one that you think they should have.
Does that make sense?
If you child loves chocolate, and if, normally, you don’t let them have chocolate very often, then having a small piece of chocolate candy like an M&M might be a huge motivator for your child to stay dry & clean all day.
If your toddler likes cars and trucks, consider a reward of a Hot Wheels car at the end of the day if they have stayed dry & clean all day! Maybe your child loves stickers, reward them with a sticker every time they go potty and they can put that sticker on their Potty Chart.
Just figure out what motivates your child to stay dry & clean all day and go with that. Keep the reward budget-friendly too. Just because your child might love a Barbie doll, that doesn’t mean you need to reward them with a new Barbie every time they go potty. Find a small reward they will love instead.
