Default Potty Training Info Sheet

Does anyone have a potty training info sheet they give to parents?

I've got one who just isn't ready ... at least not ready to train at daycare. I'm looking for back up info I can give her Mama. This just-turned-two kiddo will not say she has to go potty, will not say she has had an "accident", doesn't care if she's wet/soiled, but can stay dry for long periods of time - Mom's determining factor and Mom is really pushing it (child can stay dry at home most of the time and she has had a few dry days here, but not enough to be in underwear).

Thanks.

Toilet (Potty) Training Checklist
Is your child ready to be Potty Trained? Check those that apply to your child.
_____Follows simple directions.
_____Remains dry for at least 2 hours at a time during the day.
_____Dry after nap time.
_____Regular and predictable bowel movements.
(some may have bowel movements every day and some may have them less frequently)
_____Walks to and from the bathroom, pulls down own pants and pulls them up again
_____Seems uncomfortable with soiled or wet diapers
_____Seems interested in the toilet.
_____Has asked to wear grown-up underwear.
If the child has most of the skills marked, you can assume the child is ready to start potty training.
Potty training may best be accomplished by starting at home first and then at child care.
If the child does not have most of the skills marked then wait a few weeks or months and refer to the
checklist again.
Toilet training is much easier if the child is truly ready to master this skill;
To try to be consistent in the Potty training process, please share with us some information about
your child’s and family’s preferences in this process:
1. What words or gestures does your family use for:
Body parts?
__________________________________________________________________________
Urine?
______________________________________________________________________________
Bowel movements?
____________________________________________________________________
2. What strategies have been tried at home? (Example: reading books, aiming at Cheerios, trying
on big kid underwear, sitting on potty,)
________________________________________________________________________________
________________________________________________________________________________
________________________________________________________________________________
________________________________________________________________________________
________________________________________________________________________________
__________________________________________________
3. Does you child have a special need or circumstance that needs to be taken into consideration?

The following are some helpful hints in Potty training your child.
• A calm easygoing approach works best.
• Toilet training involves many steps (discussing, undressing, going, wiping, dressing, flushing,
hand washing) reinforce the child’s success at each step.
• Help children recognize when they are urinating or have a bowel movement. They must be
aware of what they are doing before they can do anything about it.
• Children should be shown how to use the toilet by watching other children who are trained or
discussing each step and practicing each step with out actually using the toilet. (Example:
have child sit on toilet dressed, flushing toilet).
• Included toilet training into the daily routine such as reading books, songs and games that
reinforce the skills needed to toilet train.
• Dress children in easy to remove clothing to help children be successful in undressing and
dressing.
• When a child is giving the signs of having to use the toilet or tells you they have to use the
toilet, take the child in and help undress them and on to the toilet. Sit by the child for a few
minutes. Try not to push for immediate results. After a few minutes, help the child with the
rest of the routine and give praise for the effort or any successes they had.
• Try to encourage going to the potty after meals or snacks. This is time they may actually need
to go.
• Never force a child to sit on the toilet against their will or for long periods of time if they do not
want to. This could set up a power struggle and negative feeling toward the toilet training.
• Never punish for accidents. Occasional accidents are normal. Clean and change the child
immediately. Be positive and reassuring that they will be successful. Punishment does not
make the process go faster and may delay it.
Potty Training is a big skill to learn. Be patient. Let the child decide when he/she is ready. If you do,
the child will most likely be trained in a very short period of time. However, nighttime dryness may
take an additional six months to a year. Set backs are common and should be expected. This does
not necessarily mean failure. The child may be taking a temporary step back to a more comfortable
place, which helps support later progress.

Thank you for the tips! This will help me with my kids. I appreciate it much.
