Pushing Your Kids To Potty Train Before They're Ready Is Almost As Horrible As Bragging About It

Potty training is one of those milestones that causes endless headaches for parents. I blame all the people who insist that babies are born trained and never want to be in diapers, for fooling the rest of us into believing we’re doing it wrong. It turns out all of those potty-over-achievers may be doing more harm than good. Pushing your child to potty train before age two is linked to increased risk of later wetting problems. So if you’ve been stressed about getting your young child trained — try to chill out.

Your Public Potty Training Ruined My Corn Dog

Your Public Potty Training Ruined My Corn Dog

On Sunday, my husband and I took the kids to the state fair as a last hurrah before school starts this week. When the time came for us to eat “lunch” (I put “lunch” in quotes because funnel cake and a corn dog are state fair lunch, not real lunch) we grabbed a picnic table on the side of the long line of food stands and got our nosh on. Then, about halfway into my corn dog, it happened: a couple walking by with their son stopped about ten feet from our table, pulled out a collapsible, portable potty, pulled down their son’s shorts and underwear, and sat him down on it.

Publicly Shaming Moms For Potty Training Accidents Isn't Helping Anything

A Missouri mother is embarrassed and angry after a checker at a Dollar General store shamed her for what she considered to be an inappropriately dressed child.

I don’t see the point of shaming a mother who is doing her best in a difficult situation. Mind your own business. More »

Stinking Rich NYC Parents Can Now Outsource Potty Training For A Mere $2000

Is there any aspect of raising children wealthy New York City parents can’t outsource?

In Defense of Elimination Communication

In Defense of Elimination Communication

And anyone who really practices EC knows it’s just that–a practice. It’s a way of engaging with, and teaching your child about one of life’s most basic things. Sure, there’s a level of “training the parent” that comes with it. Do more conventional methods of elimination in particular (and parenting, in general) leave you with any more shallow of a learning curve? I would think it’s all a challenge! Where you teach your kid to shit is, in the long run, a very small aspect of your relationship with your kid, but one that must be addressed at some point. More »

10 Parents Having Potty Training Problems From The Whisper App

Potty training isn’t one of the most thrilling aspects of raising children. It isn’t like any of us jump up and down with glee, super excited we get to teach one of our kids to eliminate their bodily wastes in either an adult toilet or a plastic junior-sized one that may or may not play a happy little tune when the seat is lifted. Most of us don’t get super psyched about bodily functions, but seeing all these crybaby memes on the Whisper website makes me feel like some of these parents are just getting a bit too stressed out about potty training.
