grandma's bookshelf - No More Diapers for Ducky . . . I'm Giving One Away!

Potty Training! Two words which simultaneously bring fear, frustration and joy to parents and grandparents! The thought of no more diapers, well, little compares to how wonderful it is, but for most children, potty training is a goal which can seem like it will never be accomplished.  When my children were of "potty-training-age", our doctor told us to approach it from a "relaxed" perspective. She said if we were tense and frustrated about potty training, then our children would be as well. She said children learn to use the potty when they are ready and if we follow their lead, the whole process is easier on and better for everyone.


We followed her suggestions and encouraged our children with the idea of how wonderful it would be to no longer have to wear those "yucky" diapers. We talked about how happy they would be to be children who were big enough to wear big girl/boy pants and yes, we did have an "incentive" for each of them . . . when they were potty trained they were able to go out with their dad for a treat and to buy something special at the store. What did you do to help your children become potty-trained?


Well, along this line, I am happy to share with you a cute book which helps children think about using the potty. No More Diapers for Ducky! is cute, simple and has a message we all want our grandchildren/children to understand!
