Potty Training Power offers Holiday Support for Parents

December 22, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
Cincinnati, Ohio December 22, 2010 Potty Training Power is ready to offer support to the thousands of parents who will be taking advantage of the winter holidays to teach their toddlers how to use the toilet and tips and encouragement for those whose children have regressed because of the excitement and busy nature of the season. The web based system offers parents practical advice and personalized support to get them over the common hurdles of potty training.

The founders of Potty Training Power, Sean and Cindy Platt, have helped hundreds of parents teach their children to use the potty and to deal with common problems such as accidents and potty training regression. Busy times like the holidays are ripe for bathroom related mishaps as children experience changes in their schedules and lots of extra stimulation.

The Platt's advice is simple: deal with potty training accidents in a calm, matter of fact manner and continue to enforce firm, loving boundaries. Be mindful of how many activities you are scheduling for your young child and never be afraid to scale back and instead spend some quiet, cozy family time instead.

Pressure from friends and family can make the situation worse, so parents will need to learn to tune out well-meaning but backwards advice and criticism and focus on what is best for themselves and their children.

The holidays are a magical time for young toddlers and preschoolers and parents should enjoy every minute of it, instead of stressing out about minor accidents. Keep things in perspective, take some breaths and remember that all things will pass.

Potty Training Power was founded in 2009 by Sean and Cindy Platt to help parents turn potty training time into a time of bonding between parents and children instead of a stressful time of tantrums and tears. The former preschool teachers have helped hundreds of parents teach their children to use the toilet using techniques that focus on the needs of each child as an individual.
