A lot of parents can’t wait to get their toddlers out of diapers. Some will end up trying all sorts of methods to get their child potty-trained as quickly as possible.
However, some methods may cause more problems than they help.
On Tuesday during the FOX8 Morning News, Dr. Steve Hodges — a specialist in pediatric urology with Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center — stopped by to offer some tips on how to approach toilet training.
Here are five mistakes he says parents often make:
- Training too early.
- Training their child but not following up with their toileting habits.
- Ignoring school bathrooms or bathroom policies.
- Missing signs of constipation.
- Ignoring signs of bladder trouble.
