Positive Potty Training

My tip today is for all you mothers out there needing an inventive way to reward your child for doing the right thing. When your potty training, it gets really frustrating trying to catch your child when they need to use the bathroom. My tip is to get a plastic jar and keep it in rest room. Fill it with little toys from the dollar store (you know the ones you get at birthday parties) and allow the child to have one each time they use the restroom, brush their teeth, comb their own hair, etc. This rewards the child with positive attention instead of negative and allows them to build healthy self esteem while they learn to take care of themselves.

good idea thanx. I use stickers and a chart I downloaded. My little one gets to choose one and put it on the chart herself.
