When you're training your toddler to go to the toilet on their own, you'll know that it can be a tricky process, with some days feeling like you take a step forward, only to then take 3 steps backwards the next day. Consistency is key, and one thing that you should come back to every day is making sure that you acknowledge their efforts and give praise when it is deserved.

How to Praise

There's a number of ways to praise your child for their achievements, here are a few tips:

Stickers - every time they get to the toilet or potty on time
Tell them they've done a good job - vocalise your praise and you could also use high fives.
Get others in on the act too. When your child has had a good day, say, "Well done, would you like to call Grandad and let him know too, " and get the grandparents to use positive language too and be excited for your child.

Long after toilet training has been conquered, you should still let your child know that you're really proud of them for using the toilet to both build their confidence and reinforce the positivity attached to their new skill. Some kids do regress with toilet training, so positive reinforcement is a good tactic. Consider praising your child when you've been out for the whole day and they've managed to go without accidents or when it's been a whole month of dry days.
