Parenting tales from the sofa – potty training failure

Sharing is caring!

potty training failure


Welcome to another parenting tales from the sofa where today we are talking about potty training failure. Becky from Be Confident Coach takes us through her experiences and offers some guidance on how you can deal with failures when potty training does not seem to be working.  Potty training can be a very stressful time and we hope that some of the tactics we put forward here can help allay some of those fears.

Some of the topics we have covered include:

  • What do you do if you have tried and it doesn’t seem to be working.
  • Avoiding peer pressure
  • How to deal with ‘accidents’
  • Swapping between pants and nappies – should you do it?
How to deal with failure in potty training


What experiences do you have with potty training training?  Was your child ready when you tried the first time or did it take a few attempts for potty training to succeed.  Please do tell us about your experiences below in the comments.

Oh potty training... We succeded but only after months of accidents. But I never put my son diaper over night after we decided to start potty train. It was the best decision as he only wet his bed a few times. So I washed his sheets few times and it stopped. :). I think it is important not to put diaper overnight once you start to train your toddler.
