Just like every other subject of parenting; some believe in rewarding with potty training. Now this could also depend on the child. But I do believe in giving some kind of a reward. there are all sorts of rewards that can be given to a child while they are learning to use the potty. Here is a list of different types of rewards.
- Candy/ special treat
- A sticker on a chart or in a book
- A high-five or hug
- Time with a favorite game or toy
- A special song and/or dance
I start out giving a reward for each time they sit on the potty. Once they start using the potty then I cut the reward back to just when they go either or both.
Once that becomes more regular then I start skipping the reward, only giving the it every other use and then back to twice a day. Then I cut back to giving the reward only if we go all day using the potty with no accidents. And eventually they won’t get a reward, just the satisfaction of a job well done!
What kind of reward did you use? Did you give a reward at all? Please share in the comments below.
