Some children, believe it or not, lose interest in M&Ms or candies. The key is finding a bribe that your child is really obsessed with.
4. Find the Right Bribe. We tried Cheerios, M&M’s, potty charts, cheerleader rants and screams, but nothing worked. My son has always been obsessed with cars and trucks and luckily, the movie Cars had just come out. My husband scoured the local stores to collect all the figurines featured in the movie. We saw the movie, then we told my son that every time he went potty he’d get a car. It was magical. After 15 cars, he was totally potty trained. I’m sure Disney would be so proud. Source: Parents.com
For my little girl who had a fascination for little rubber duckies, this worked like gangbusters.
It did not take her long to get potty trained as long as she was getting her prizes of various colored rubber duckies.
The next tip requires some creativity on your part. Come on mom, I know you have that creative part of you. It’s time to bring it out for a great cause.
3. Make The Bathroom Fun. Make it somewhere you could hang out for a while. We made the bathroom Neverland Island. It was our hideout from Captain Hook and Mr. Sme! We made some Paper trees, got a treasure box (See step 5) and parked some of our favorite Jake toys in there with us. Making the bathroom fun gives you more opportunities to want to sit on the toilet and when magic happens “YO HO HO!”. Source: TheRealisticMom.com
Just make sure when you make your bathroom a fun place to be in to not overdo it or make things permanent. Or else, you might regret it. 🙂
