The next potty training tip for little boys is actually quite fun so go ahead and try it.
8. Target Practice.
Getting my son to learn the standing-up thing was hard, so we turned it into a game. I put five Cheerios in the potty and told him to aim at them when he peed. Every time he did it right, he got to pick out a prize from a bag of goodies I picked up at the dollar store. (6)
You can even even use fruity Cheerios or Fruit Loops so that your child can also learn about colors. Have them pick the color that they want to target to get them more motivated.
Have you ever thought of daddy to help out with the potty training? To make things move along much faster, why not ask daddy to set an example?
7. Have Dad As Part Of The Team.
Sometimes, dads can work their magic to get your little ones to do things that mom can’t. Use this power of dad to your advantage — and this will be especially helpful if you’re training a boy since dad has what he has. This was the case in my house during our potty training venture. I could tell and ask my son to use the bathroom until I wanted to pull my hair out, when his father told him to try and go, he went in effortlessly. (7)
Hey dad, how about you try to target some of those Fruity Cheerios and show your son how it’s done? That should be a great time to bond. 🙂
