Thank goodness for potty training youtube videos.
If you read my previous post about my potty training woes, you know I’ve tried EVERYTHING. Or so I had thought.
I don’t know why I didn’t think to turn to YouTube but the thought honestly didn’t enter my mind until 5 days ago. But it was a few days ago that the thought entered my mind that perhaps some genius on YouTube could help our potty training efforts.
I had to hope that some potty training youtube videos geared towards stubborn kids would make some sort of difference.
I’m happy to say I’ve seen a small change in attitude over the past couple of days!
What’s made the difference?
To be honest, I can’t say exactly what it is about the videos that have made a difference. But clearly they resonated a little differently with my kids than my other tools. Maybe it was seeing kids of different ages using the potty, or the songs, again I’m not sure. But I just had my daughter have her fourth consecutive pee in a potty! This is huge considering she would barely sit on the potty a week ago. And my son actually asked to wear a pair of underwear yesterday afternoon and this morning. We didn’t wear the underwear for long (probably about an hour) but again this is a big step forward for us at this point.
Here are the videos that my kids responded to the best:
