If you are not a parent, you do not understand how frustrating potty training can be. If you are an expecting parent, this will give you a little bit of insight as to what you can expect. Real parents share their trials and tribulations that come along with potty training, and it is absolutely hilarious.
Most parents bribe their children with little treats to entice them to use the potty. It is like giving a dog a treat for sitting on command but for kids. This is usually an effective way to get your kids to go on the potty, but it can also cause them to expect a treat every time they go, even after they are fully potty trained. They start to believe it is what happens whenever anyone uses the potty.
It Takes Time
If you have never potty trained a small human before, you need to know that it takes time and patience. You need to prepare yourself to spend a lot of time sitting in the bathroom coaching your child to squeeze out a few drops of pee, so they get the idea of what they need to do.
Did we mention it takes time?
The amount of time that it takes to potty train your kiddo varies from one child to another. One thing you need to be prepared for is the fact that you can literally get nothing else done because you have to stay with your child while they sit on the potty waiting for a few drops to hit the water.
You thought it was a joke? You literally get held hostage while waiting for that magical moment when your child finally does something in the potty. The good thing is that this can also be a great time to talk and bond with your child.
