It would be wonderful if all aspects of parenting came with a ready-made tailored plan but life, especially toddler life, doesn’t always go in the direction that we think. With that in mind and when it comes to potty training, we recommend creating a toilet training plan.
This is a good way of starting things on the right track and having something concrete to refer back to in order to help anchor your toilet training journey. It will also help with getting started. Once you have recognised the signs that your child is ready to train, a plan will kick things off in a positive way.
Planning is key! Above all, taking the time to prepare yourself, your child and your home for potty training is undoubtedly the best way forward to achieve a successful potty training for all involved. Many parents struggle with this issue but are afraid to admit it due to the often-competitive nature of milestones and the fear that your toddler is not at the same stage as their friends.
We’ve been told for as long as we can remember that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But that doesn’t mean it’s always easy to make the time to have a healthy meal in the morning. That’s why we were so pleased to see the importance of breakfast highlighted in new, interesting ways with Farmhouse Breakfast Week.
Frustration is a common emotion experienced by both parent and child when feeling out of control, overstretched or simply just exhausted. Dealing with toddler milestones can exacerbate feelings of frustration in what might be seen as a Catch 22 situation; successfully mastering milestones is a sign of your toddler’s growing independence but this can lead back to feelings of frustration from the adult when your child wants to assert themselves and won’t always do as they are told.
If you’ve ever been frustrated around your toddler and had one of those days or weeks where they just won’t listen, then you will be more than familiar with the importance of good communication.
As parents ourselves, we have always placed clear communication high on the priority list when it comes to bringing up our children. That’s why Family Seat makes a contribution to children’s communication charity I CAN with every seat purchased on our official site.
