A few months into my research for potty training tips, I found myself ‘blocked’ and in need of new ideas.
Numerous conversations with moms plus the lessons I’ve learned from potty training my own kids gave me a good base of motherly knowhow. But I felt I had already exhausted this channel.
My online research on the other hand - has mostly revealed pediatricians’ articles, whereas I was looking for non-medical view.
I was hoping to find a professional authority that looks at potty training from a different perspective: Behavioral and educational.
So I went to seek professional advice from certified parenting consultants, thinking it could be interesting to pick their brains.
Turned out I was right. The two professionals I met with (see Credits below), whose work is based on Adler approach combined with behavioral-cognitive psychology and years of advising to parents, had given me plenty of insight.
The 2-hours ‘interview’ I had with each of them is served here in chapters.
These articles contain extensive knowledge and awesome potty training tips.
I hope you'll find them enlightening.
