Potty Training and Bed-wetting: Calm Guidance from Dr. Andrew Barnes
As parents, many of us struggle to sort through varied and often contradictory bits of potty training and bed-wetting advice from childrearing books, peers, grandparents and childcare providers. We wonder when our child should be out of diapers, when toileting “accidents” are something to worry about and what approach will be most effective (and least harmful) in helping our children achieve independence in toileting.
What different kinds of advice have you received about potty training and bed-wetting and how did that advice come to you? What was helpful and what was not? Are your children at an age at which toileting problems are still an issue? If so, what did you get from this week’s Mom Enough show to help you see or respond to the issue in new ways?
