I think I have said before that my least favorite part of raising a toddler is potty training. Those of you with children relatively close in age will agree that trying to potty train while having a baby attached to you at all times is difficult at best.
I failed miserably in my first attempt to potty train, so I am the last one to dish out potty training advice. But I have decided to take a more conventional route this time. I am gathering every resource at my disposal. I came across the personalized Potty Hero books from Bookadoo and decided to give it a shot. I have never ordered a personalized book such as this before. It uses both an image of your child and their name to make the experience their own. Little kids love when the world revolves around them (which is part of why my attempts to potty train with my eldest were such a dismal failure… but I digress). This book puts your child front an center in image and name on each page.
It is a simple tale. It doesn’t focus on the mechanics of using the potty, more the need to be vigilant and use the potty before doing something like going outside to play. It can be extrapolated with your child that this will decrease the likelihood that they will have to stop playing to go potty or, more accurately in the beginning, change clothes after and accident. The story is told with that rhythm that is ubiquitous to all good children stories, so it holds your child’s attention well. If you want to make the more even more special, you can write your own forward (I declined this option).
The book retails for $29.95 for paperback and $39.95 for hard back. There is a boy version and a girl version.
I have a number of paperbacks, most of which are signed, to giveaway. Over the between now (11 Mar 2017) and 31 Mar 2017, every comment on the blog (this post and all other new posts), will be entered to win 1 of these paperbacks. There are also some misc swag items, so there will be a few packs of these to give away as well.
Thank you so much for your support over the last 4 years. Prism will be closing its doors on 1 April 2017. All content will remain available, but no new content will appear after 31 Mar 2017. As such all request forms have been turned off. Again Thank you,
