You don’t start with “Let’s sit on the potty and climb.” You’ll end up there, but you don’t start there. A good place to start is a coffee chair, not adult coffee. The reason for this is twofold: Number one, sometimes children get intimidated by being upstairs in the adult restroom. It’s like sitting on a ten-foot platform. And secondly, it is very difficult to poop when your legs are hanging. If you use a trifle that you put on the toilet bowl, you need to have a small platform or chair on which you can put your feet.
The first thing to do with a chair is to place them comfortably there as if it’s not a big deal. You do this by having more chairs for fun than for a chair. The child will sit there, fully clothed, just to read a book or sing a fun song. Then, “Come on, baby, let’s sit in your magic chair and look at the book. Which book do you want to view? “When they’re sitting down, set the countdown to a minute or two. When the timer goes off, you say, ‘Oh, that was fun! Goodbye, a special chair. See you later.’ The child will say, ‘Wait, I’m not done. “And you say, ‘Okay. Yes. We’ll finish this page, but then we’ll come back and read some more later.’
Once the child does this, the next step is to do the same, but without the pants. The next thing is to do the same thing, but without the diaper. Then, often, accidentally or accidentally, when they list or enumerate.
I’ll notice that it’s a good thing for boys to learn to pee while sitting. Because once they can pee while standing, they don’t want to sit. Standing is more fun. So getting them to learn to sit is helpful because it will help them understand how to sit faster.
