Q: Hi. I’m at my wits end with my 3 year. We have had to go back into pull ups because he is costing me a small fortune in under pants. We have the wees pretty much down but not the poo’s. We have tried everything and I mean everything and it’s just not happening.
The ultimate aim of potty training is to get your child toilet trained (the clue isn’t always in the name!). If it’s possible to get there in one step, that’s great, it makes sense to go for it; to teach the ultimate behaviour and habits in one go rather than teaching to use the potty
Potty training is very empowering for children as it is something that they need to physically master on their own. This doesn’t however mean that the parent is redundant in the process. Approaching potty training as a team will help your little one crack it earlier and will also make it more fun for you
