The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 170: Is Pre-Potty Exposure Necessary Before Potty Training?

If it’s about time for you to start your potty training journey with your child, you may be wondering if you’ve “prepped” your child enough for the experience. 

What do they need to know about the potty before they jump in? 

How much do you need to mentally prepare them? 

What should you tell them? 

What should they experience? 

I get lots of questions like this from moms who are about the jump into potty training for the first time. They want to make sure they set their child up for success when it comes to potty training, and I’m all aboard on that mentality. 

So today let’s talk about this exposure to the potty before jumping into potty training so that you can begin your journey in ease.  

Let’s go to the show. 


  • Laura Lynn explains how your child naturally gets some potty exposure prior to your potty training journey; 
  • She shares why you may NOT want to do a structured potty exposure for your child so that fears to not develop; and 
  • She shares what you DO need to do when you start potty training if your child has been sitting on the potty for fun.
