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?


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.
