Picture this… 

You’re done with daytime potty training, your child is fully pee and poop potty trained for daytime and nap, and now all of a sudden your child isn’t doing a good pee when she sits on the toilet. She sits, goes some, and then runs off. 

Maybe she’s rushing to the bathroom a little while later because she has to go. Maybe she suddenly has some pee pee dribbles in her underwear. 

And you're thinking, what gives? You had this whole potty training thing down months ago. 

If you ask me, “What gives?” is a great question. 

Why is your child suddenly doing this, and what can you do about it? That’s what I’ll be answering today. 

Let’s head to the show.

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 172: Wisely Using Rewards in Potty Training So They Actually Work


If you’re in your potty training journey with your toddler and you’re concerned or worried that maybe your child is just not  getting the hang of it or you feel that your child is struggling to learn the process or you feel that maybe they aren’t making the progress that you think your child should be making, the very first thing that I would look at and trouble shoot is the reward you’re using. 

And if you’re concerned about progress and aren’t using rewards at all, then by all means add those rewards in. 

The reason that I say that rewards is the first thing that you should troubleshoot in your potty training journey is that it’s a pretty dang easy thing to fix or to change, and that one small change with rewards in potty training can actually make a huge difference. 

That’s my go-to when it comes to troubleshooting typical potty training progress issues because one...

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.

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 165: So, When is Potty Training Over?!


We talk a lot about potty training: the how-to, readiness signs, how long it will take. 

We think about the process and what life will look like during that process when you’re actively potty training your child. 

We also think about AFTER potty training is over… what life will be like, the freedom you’ll have from not having to change diapers, the money that you’ll save from not having to buy those diapers. 

But one thing we don’t often talk about is “When is potty training over?”

That’s what we’ll be talking about today.  Let’s head to the show.

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
