It’s hard to believe that Christmas has rolled around once again but we’re embracing the start of the festive season by celebrating the importance of family and togetherness. Learning to balance parental responsibility inevitably makes the relationship between a couple stronger and improves the overall family dynamic too.
You’ve read up on top potty-training tips and learnt how to understand the signs of readiness in your toddler. But parenting is by no means a one-size-fits-all situation which makes it all the more important to prepare for the unexpected. We’ve spoken to many parents who feel disheartened and as if they have failed in some way when their child has trouble with potty training.
This couldn’t be further from the truth. We all come up against barriers and stumbling blocks on the parenting journey and we’re all here to help each other. That’s why today’s post is focused on the reasons why your child may be struggling with potty training and how you can deal with the issues.
With Halloween coming up at the end of the month, many parents will already be planning their celebrations. While it might be a much-loved tradition by some, trick or treating has gained a bit of a bad name in recent years.
Some parents see it as harmless fun but others are concerned with the safety aspect as well as whether it might look a bit greedy or be seen as bad manners and intrusive. It’s a personal choice and we can see the argument on both sides, but if you would like to celebrate a different way this Halloween, here are some ideas.
This summer, we had the pleasure of e-meeting the lovely Laura, who runs the “Mama, Eden & Me” Twitter account. After we discovered her frustrations with potty training her toddler, we sent over a Talia Family Seat to see if it would help Eden along in her milestone training.
It’s always wonderful to see our Family Seat in action and hear from families who are using the seat for their little ones.

The Christmas bells are already ringing here at Family Seat HQ and with just a few short months to go until the festive season rolls back around, we’re already making plans.
There’s something about having younger children that makes prepping for Christmas months in advance much more attractive – and practical. Just like with milestone learning, preparation is key and super-early prep means less stress and anxiety when Christmas is suddenly around the corner, the extended family are coming to stay and you’re up to your ears in turkey and toddler meltdowns.
