So im potty training my 10 month old….I started almost a week ago
So far he is doing pretty good, I have been teaching him signing since he was 4months, and so Im teaching him the one for “Toilet” but I say potty, and in a sing-song voice I say “Mikah go peepee shhhhhh,” over and over while doing the sign for it, and if he goes or not, I say happy words and ask him for a high-five (that he gives and he smiles)
I put him on about 2-4times a day.
When I told my mother about it, she said that its taking away from his childhood!!??
I was like…”OKAY,” and rolled my eyes….
I didn’t realize that not wearing diapers is taking away from one’s childhood!
I finally looked up why its thought to have “Negative” affects on children that potty train to “early”
My conclusion is that its absurd, and has to do with the adult and how they treat the child during the training.
When did you start potty training your little one(s)?
whats your view point on starting "Early"
