We all went through it but don’t remember it quite clearly.
And, as a parent, you now have the distinct privilege of finding a way to help your child through it too.
So what is “it”?
Here’s a clue. The popular song “Splish Splash” relates to the subject at hand.
It’s a messy ordeal at times but with a little patience and dedication all will turn out well.
It’s potty training!
Trying to find the right solution while effectively communicating how to accomplish this task to a younger child can be very challenging. When children have special needs, it becomes even more problematic.
Sometimes playing games can be especially helpful for boys.
There are many books written about different strategies for helping younger children and older children transition through the trials of potty training.
As a Mom, one of the books I highly recommend is Toilet Training by Maria Wheeler which has proven to be a valuable resource.
You can just imagine the stories I could tell. So, without embarrassing my kids, make a mental note to be prepared for this milestone in the life of a special needs child.
Before you know it you’ll be congratulating your child for a job well done.
