TOP TIPS FROM LOCAL PARENTS
On Toilet Training
‘‘Wait until they are ready and then go for it. Forcing them when they are not ready can lead to all sorts of issues, including bowel problems’’ – Rhonda ’‘Have patience – hard, I know, but it will happen’’ – Beth ‘‘Take your reluctant toddler shopping for undies. I bought master 2.5 Lightning McQueen undies and he refused to wear nappies, only his cool new pants. Went from not interested to completely day-trained in two weeks’’ – Lynsey
‘‘A sticker chart worked well for us – one little sticker for wees, one big flash sticker for poos’’ – Caroline
‘‘Lots of encouragement, positivity, hugs and kisses even when they miss. Set small milestones and reward every milestone’’ – Tasi.
