It is such a hard thing to do, which is why I think the best thing for potty training is to have a good idea of what you want to do before you even start. Potty training is a process, and it takes patience and consistency.
And of course it takes a lot more than just “no training.” It also takes a tremendous amount of time. Potty training takes a lot of energy and focus, and it isn’t something you can just wake up and do. Potty training is a process, so you need to have a goal for it, a game plan for it, and you need to follow it.
I read a post online about someone who found her baby’s diaper changed, went to sleep, and the baby woke up crying and not wanting to go to sleep. It was the same diaper over and over again. She then slept for two hours, woke up crying, and couldn’t sleep for the remainder of the night. She was the first person to ever do this in a public space, and I think that she has a good plan in place that she is sticking to.
We all have to have a goal to stick to. Having a baby, a kid, a teenager, a teenage girl, a teen boy, a teenager boy, a teen girl, a teen boy, a teenager girl, a teen boy, etc. is an all-encompassing goal. And sticking to a plan like that does not mean you cant make mistakes. We all do.
I’m sure you also have a goal, and you know what you have to do to reach that goal. But some goals can be accomplished in a day, others in a month, and others still take a while. It may not be much different from how you typically sleep, but you have to realize that you have a goal. This is not a new concept, as we’ve already discussed at length on this site.
Of course, while we always like to talk about the importance of goals and where to aim for them, we also like to discuss the importance of the things we dont do. And just like we don’t like to talk about our goals, we dont want to talk about the not-doing. There is no such thing as a “perfect” plan. So when you go to bed each night and think about your goals, try to focus on the things you do.
So, what are your goals? Well, to put it bluntly: you need to find a place to pee. You need to go potty if you have to, you need to make your bed, you need to eat something, and you need to get dressed. It’s up to you to decide what you want to do. And you might want to re-think your goals and priorities.
The idea is that each of us is a complex, individual human being. We have different goals and different ways of achieving them. One thing I have found is that if you focus on what you are good at you will usually get better at what you want to do. It doesn’t matter if you want to go to college, write a book, fly a plane, be a doctor, be a pilot, or be a teacher. It just matters that you do it.
I know this is an extreme example, but I had a friend who had a hard time with potty training. He was a little weird, but I think he has a pretty good idea of what he should be doing. If he is not very good at one thing then you should focus on what you are good at instead.
Potty training is a common need for new parents, and I can assure you that potty training is a necessary skill to have for anyone who is raising a child. No one wants to be the parent of a child who does not do well with the potty. No one wants to have to change diapers or teach them to use the toilet. The more skill you have with the potty, the better you will be at everything else.
