Jennifer is a one in a million stay-at-home mom. (More like one OF a million stay at home moms!) She graduated from a liberal arts college but there is nothing liberal OR artsy about her. She is married to Kevin Fischer of This Just In, and together they have a beautiful toddler daughter Kyla Audrey. In no particular order she loves dogs, wine, a good bargain, her family, pizza, and entertaining. Follow her blog of all things miscellaneous including but not limited to cooking and baking, entertaining and party planning, being a mommy, and homekeeping.
There are lots of methods and theories out there about potty training your kids. Some use sticker charts (never enough of an incentive for Kyla) and some use a small food reward like M&M’s (didn’t want to deal with that.) For training boys there’s the famous “Aim Game” with floating Cheerios in the toilet bowl. As with most things I feel the best approach is whatever works for your family. The goal is the same no matter what: you want to rid yourself of disposables ASAP and help your child become more independent. It is, indeed, a happy day when that is accomplished.
So while I advocate any system that ends in your kiddo pulling down undies, wiping & flushing by his or herself, I just can’t – CAN’T – get my head around this idea: Eeewww.
