your toddler choose the potty seat of choice
One fun way is
get your toddler interested in potty training (or to retain
the interest) is to let them choose which potty seat they
want. And potty seats have come a long way over the years,
complete with all the bells and whistles that were unimaginable
only a few years ago.
For instance, many
potty seats are available in characters from Blues Clues to
Scooby-Doo. Even Elmo has his very own potty chair.
Other toilets play
favorite toddler songs, have ultra-cushie seats, or are made
of different bright colors to appeal to your toddler's eye.
If you already
have decided that a musical potty is just too annoying for
you, take care not to point that one out when you go shopping.
And the potty you tell your son or daughter they absolutely
cannot have, will certainly be the one they want, so show
the potty selections carefully (or take an advance trip alone
to scope out the potty section).
You can even wrap
up the potty once you get home, so then your toddler can unwrap
the paper and find their chosen potty seat, to make it more
exciting, particularly if your toddler wasn't as enthused
about selecting the potty as you had hoped.
