Oh the joys of potty training! That sweet, seamless time of life when diapers are whisked out of your home and your little one trots off to the bathroom and takes care of business, solo!
Everyone agrees just when and how to potty train and... Wait? What? No?
Reality check: your first couple times on the potty training merry-go-round are filled with self-doubt, well-meaning people sharing contrary advice, and (quite possibly) urine on your furniture.
Sounds like fun, doesn't it?
I could join the well meaning masses and give you my bullet-proof methods (ha ha), but I'm not going to. Instead I thought I'd share what NOT to do when potty training a toddler...
(If you're wondering, I'm on my fourth go-round with potty training)
I don't know if I've ever felt more confused and in-over-my-head as I did the first time I ran the Potty Training Marathon.
But if I could go back, this is what I'd tell myself...
Have you been through the Potty Training Marathon? What's the biggest goof you've made?
