Potty Training The Lazy Way

I had been fretting a bit about the potty training. Then I gave up. A couple of weeks ago it was just me and Toddler boy at home for about half an hour. He was a bit constipated. I put him on the toilet seat with a packet of crisps and the promise of a Power Rangers outfit as incentive and had a result! From that moment onwards the boy was potty trained. In the last two weeks we have had 1 accident (resultant of the relief from coming home after a long car journey).

It seems to me that he was capable for some time and it was just a matter of confidence. But who cares, I’ve not had to clear up any accidents, I’ve not had to stay at home, life has continued as normal. The slightly lazy way is arguably the best!

I suggest that this may be the way to go if you are having similar concerns.

    S&#39;not lazy.<br /><br />S&#39;efficient.<br /><br />Well done you, I ended up bribing mine with a (much recycled) five Euro notes to do a poo in the loo rather than waving a nappy at me in a very insistant manner.

    Well done, you know wew never potty trianed left it late and went straight to the loo. Far to much competative parenting about potty training.

    Am following this path – Toddlergirl will get it when she wants and worrying about it is a waste of time<br /><br />Much more relaxed now it seems nursery don&#39;t really care either way!
