Potty Training Books
So you’re beginning to wonder if your child is ready for potty training and decided to find some books to help you.
Good for you, this gives you a definite advantage. Educating yourself about the potty process before you try to educate your child is the best way to go.
The more you understand, the better equipped you will be to overcome obstacles and make this a successful time for both of you.
Finding Potty Training Books
A quick online search will probably turn up all the books you need. In addition to books, you’ll find parenting forums where you can chat with other parents going through the potty training process.
It can be helpful to be able to get input and encouragement from other people.
If you prefer to head to your local bookstore, you’ll find a vast array of parenting books there that will include potty training advice and methods. Make sure you choose a book that you like,written in a way that makes it easy to understand and follow.
The most expensive, comprehensive parenting book in the world won’t do you any good if you don’t want to read it.
After you pick out a book for yourself, head over to the children’s section and see what they might have in the way of books for your child about using the potty.
This can be a great way to begin to talking to her about potty training. It’s best to ease into the process and let her become involved rather than trying to force the idea on her.
Other Potty Training Aids
Once you’ve decided on the method of potty training and are ready to start, you’ll need a few supplies.
At the very least, you’ll need some potty training underwear for her. If you decide to use a potty chair or seat, you’ll need that too.
Take your child to the store with you and let her pick out the underwear she likes. This too will increase her willingness to start potty training.
The more you can involve her, the more invested she’ll become in her success. She’s beginning to want to have more control over her world and potty training can be one of the first big decisions she makes.
Potty training books and aids can be very helpful in the process of helping your child as she makes this final transition from baby to childhood.
