Potty charts are great for your toddler and other children as they give them a chance to sit down and identify their problem areas. They also give parents an opportunity to talk about any concerns and offer solutions for the problems.
Potty issues are not something that you have to be worried about for the rest of your child’s life. With a little bit of work and patience, you can teach your child when it is time to go to the bathroom and how to do it. These little details will build up over time and the whole process will become second nature.
You should start out by placing some potty charts in the place where your child goes to relieve themselves. This may be at night when they are supposed to be sleeping or during the day while they are alone.
You can even put one on the floor if your child is afraid of them. It’s best if you just place one right next to the toilet, but this is not always possible. You may be able to find something that has enough room to allow you to hold the potty in front of it.
You may want to find something small enough to slip your child into as they need to go. If this is not possible, you can take the time to slowly teach them the proper way to go potty.
Once your child understands the difference between going to the bathroom and making a mess then they can begin to feel comfortable with going to the bathroom themselves. If you can get your child to hold the potty near their bed, then they will learn to sleep better when they wake up.
While they are tired from sleeping, they may be less likely to have accidents in the morning. These few steps will help to give your child a healthy bladder and a healthy bowel system so that they have no problems as they grow older.
