How Do I Potty Train My Two Year Old Daughter
Be clever& in charge: The child is challenging your authority to tell them what to do, etc. Let them know you are the boss, but make them think they are. Try giving them choices wherever possible. For instance, getting ready for bed - they need ot brush teeth and put on pj's. Ask them to pick which they want to do first - it gives them a feeling of control, and you still get both things done. But you are in charge! ...Read more

The most stable stool that goes around a toilet is a little looster, if you feel you must teach him now. If he feels insecure or scared, he can regress to diapers or have toileting refusals. If you want him to watch you from a safe place, target a few cheerios or tinkle targets (from amazon) with your stream. ...Read more

Weight lifting and other muscle building exercises can help you increase your body mass. ...Read more
Do not worry: Night time enuresis is common. Usually there is a first degree relative (parent, aunt, uncle, cousin) who also we t the bed. After age 7 the best treatment I have found is a bed wetting alarm. Available at medical supply places, it still has the best track record for resolving this issue. ...Read more

If none of these seem to be true, talk with her and find out what she feels. Focus on the positive. Ask her each day "What was the best thing at school today?" or "What did you do for fun today?" If she continues to have trouble, see her doctor. ...Read more

Applaud success but don't comment at al on failures. ...Read more
