Quick Tip: Home-made toilet targets

Giving little ones the incentive they need to get going

I had the hardest time trying to potty train my son. One piece of advice I got was to stick a star (see My Wee Friend) on the bottom of his portable potty and tell him to try and hit the star. That didn't work. It wasn't enough incentive.

Then it hit me that when we were washing dishes together, he really loved making the bubbles. The next time he went, I put a little bit of dishwashing liquid in his potty. He got really really excited by the bubbles. I told him to remember to hit the star- and it worked!
