Reading Time: 4 minutes

The research showed that listening to music while potty training is helpful for both children who are ready to toilet train and those who are not. The researchers also found that listening to music while potting training can make your child more aware of their body and help them become better at expressing themselves.

Listening to music also has a calming effect on your child, helping them feel more relaxed and confident while they are in their potty seats. This can help your child focus on what they are doing and not get distracted by their surroundings.

This can help your child become better at expressing themselves and make them feel more comfortable about the process. Listening to music is also a great way for you as a parent to calm down during the training process as well as have some fun with your toddler! Here are some Steps of Potty Training.

Things that parents should know about potty training

There are some things that every parent should know about the process before they get started. Here are things that every parent should know about potty training before they get started:

1. Preparation

The first step in any kind of learning process is preparation. When starting with your child, you need to have a plan for what will happen and when it will happen. To do this, you need to have a written schedule that details exactly what you’re going to do and when.

For example, if you’re potty training your child at night, you need to write down the times that you’ll be putting them in their pajamas and putting them to bed. Then, when it’s time for bedtime, make sure that they get in their pajamas and are ready for bed. 

2. Reasons for going to potty training

When you first start potty training your child, they may not understand why they have to go to the bathroom. This is normal because they don’t know how important it is yet. However, as soon as they start using the toilet regularly, they’ll understand why it’s important for them to go every day.

The good news is that once your child starts going regularly every day, he or she will quickly become more interested in other aspects of potty training, such as learning new words or trying new songs about going to the bathroom.

3. Try not to use scolding or harsh words

When you potty-train your child, try to not use any harsh words around them. Instead, use words like “we’re doing something good for you” or “you’re helping us make things better for you.” This is something that most children will be able to understand.

4. It’s best not to make your child feel like they have no choice but to potty-train early.

It’s okay if they aren’t ready yet, but if they don’t want to do it at all, try not to push them into it too much. If you’re trying to get your child ready for potty training and he or she still isn’t going to the restroom every day, talk with his or her doctor about how you can help him or she become more comfortable using the toilet. 

5. Don’t feel pressured into it. 

Potty training is something that should be fun for both of you, but if it’s not, don’t feel like you have to do it right away. Just try to keep things positive and encourage your child as much as possible. Eventually, he or she will want to go to the toilet every day and start using the toilet regularly without any extra help from you.

6. Encourage other family members to help out with potty training too.

You don’t have to be the only one who is helping with potty training your child. If other family members are willing to help out with this process,
