The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 163: The Potty Schedule Method How-To


It’s potty training season and I’m a big, big fan of the potty training schedule method in which your child sits on the potty based off of a schedule, which is signaled by a timer. 

One of the reasons why I love this method is because it tells both the child and the parent when it’s time to sit on the potty, and you can easily see where your child is making improvements in their potty training journey. 

So today on the show I’m going to walk you through this potty training schedule method and let you know how it works. 

Alright, let’s get to it. Let’s head to the show. 

IN THIS EPISODE:

  • Laura Lynn shares the general flow of the potty training sit schedule method;
  • She walks you through how to gradually increase the time in-between the scheduled potty sits; and
  • She explains what to do in the method if your child is having too many accidents back-to-back.

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 159: Two Essential Strategies When Using Rewards in Potty Training


Today on the show we are talking about two fundamental strategies you will want to follow if you are using rewards to potty training your toddler. 

I’m a big fan of rewards, I used rewards to potty train my now 4 year old son, and I will definitely be using rewards when I potty train my 2 year-old daughter. But here’s the thing about rewards… They can work really really well at helping your child learn a new skill - in this case potty training- but we have to use them in the right way.

 It’s not rocket science, but you don’t know what you don’t know, right?! 

Now onto the two keys when using rewards in potty training. Let’s head to the show. 

IN THIS EPISODE:

  • Laura Lynn shares the three different rewards she used when potty training her son;

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 157: What I Would Change about My Own Potty Training Journey


Since Spring and Summer are key times for potty training for most parents, for the next foreseeable future I’ll be adding in extra potty training episodes on the podcast to give you some additional support. I’ll be talking about the how-to of potty training, using rewards, outlining when potty training is over, and describing what life really looks like when potty training is over, which will be very helpful if your child is the first one you’re potty training. Don’t forget that I do have a lot of previous episodes on potty training, so search my episodes to see if any of those episodes can give you some guidance when it comes to potty training.

But today I want to get a little personal and talk about what I would change about my own potty training journey. 

Even if your potty training journey resulted in successfully potty training your toddler, there may still be some things you’d do differently,...

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 155: The Potty Dance Dilemma: How to Get Your Child to Request the Potty


Does your toddler do the potty dance? 

Even if your child is wearing underwear and is mostly or completely potty trained, she may still be doing the potty dance. 

When she has to go potty, she may fidget and dance around. Or she may walk around in a funny way because she’s trying to hold it. Or she even could be holding herself because she has to go potty but won’t go to the bathroom, or won’t tell you. 

This is one of the MOST frequent issues that mamas come to me with. Their child is fully potty trained, she doesn’t have accidents, she’s wearing underwear all day, and yet she won’t ever tell you that she needs to go. 

Why is it that your child does this potty dance, is fully potty trained, and won’t tell you that she needs to go? And what can you do about it? That’s what we’ll be talking about today.

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 152: When the Child-Led Potty Training Method Isn’t Working


Parenting should come with a manual, shouldn’t it? 

While that seems like a great idea and an opportunity that someone should have jumped on a long time ago, the reality of it is that every child is an individual. That means they have their individual personalities, their individual preferences, their individual idiosyncrasies, and their individual needs. 

It’s true for potty training as well. You may be holding a so-called potty training “manual” or book, you’ve followed it to a T, and yet your toddler is still not potty trained. What gives? 

If you’re in the boat of using more of a child-led or child-initiated potty training method and it’s just not doing the trick, your toddler is still not getting the hang of it after a good consistent effort, keep listening to this episode. 

Today I will be sharing what to do next if that child-led potty training method isn’t...

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 148: Using Technology as a Reward in Potty Training


One of the most frequent questions that I get asked about potty training is what types of rewards are good rewards to use for potty training. 

It’s a good question because if you're going to use rewards to help create a successful potty training plan, then you might as well use rewards that are actually going to work. 

Maybe you’ve never considered it but using technology as a reward within potty training may be a dang good reward for your kiddo. But what does that look like? How do you use technology as a reward in potty training? 

Today on the show I’ll share how you can use technology as a reward and use it to your advantage. Of course, in my own personal and professional potty training experience, I have used technology A LOT as a reward. I’ll share how it can be done. 

Now let’s talk about technology and potty training. Let’s go to the show.

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 141: What To Do When You’ve Dabbled with Potty Training & You’re Ready To Get It Done


Have you dabbled with potty training but you’re ready to put the pedal to the metal, go all in, and ditch those diapers for good? 

Maybe you’ve given your toddler the time and the space to get comfortable with the potty, to give it a try on their own, and to let them do it on their terms. But maybe, just maybe, your toddler isn’t daytime potty trained. 

Don’t worry. It’s not just your toddler and you’re not the only one in this boat. Many, many parents have gone this route of being lax about potty training but soon finding that they need to ramp up the strategies a little bit to actually get their kiddo potty trained. 

And guess what, some kids actually do need to be “trained.” They need to go through the potty training process. They may not be potty trained on their own or in their own timing, and that’s okay. 

So today on the show I’m going to answer the...
