"In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response."
To participate, you ask your readers a question and then sign Kailani's Mister Linky with your Aloha Friday post.
When did you start potty training your children, and how long did it take? If you don't have kids, then when were you potty trained?
We started when our son was about 18 months. He was showing the signs, he was waking up from nap and sometimes in the morning with a dry diaper. So we started the process. We did a chart with 30 spots to mark (nothing to do with the days of the month) to mark off when he went potty. We got to the point that he went pee about 10 times and then we ended up getting off the routine and stopping completely.
We just started up again this last week, he is 23 months! He has been doing great the last couple days he has only had like 1 pee accident and only 1-2 poop accident. He hasn't gone poop on the potty yet (which from what I have heard is normal especially for boys). He has his chart filled up to the 24th mark, so only 6 more to go until we let him pick a BIG prize!
We have been encouraging him by dancing after each time he goes on the potty and he also gets a Pez from his Lightning McQueen Pez dispenser. Then he says bye bye to his pee and he flushes the toilet and then he marks the chart with a sticker himself.
Umm, bonus question LOL: Does anyone else have any suggestions that have helped them to make the process go faster?
