Potty training is not only hard for the child; it can also be a very uncomfortable process for the parents. Especially if you do not like the idea of your little one being in the same room while you go potty. For this reason exactly, many books and movies have been made to help children understand that they are not the only ones who go potty.
Movies that are filled with sing along songs and fun characters may be just what you need during any stage of potty training. They will keep your child entertained and will teach your child the rights and wrongs of the bathroom. Some books that were my daughters favorites and were rated highly are
Potty Power- For Boys and Girls
Sesame Street- Elmo’s Potty Time
Go Potty GO!
Once upon A potty For Him/ For Her
I Gotta Go!
The Potty Movie For Girls
The Potty Movie For Boys
No More Diapers
It’s Potty Time
For those parents who would rather not have their children in front of the TV, or to be used in unison to the movies are the wide variety of books. It gives parents and children some bonding one on one time together, which will help the process. There are many books out there, these are just a few that were rated high, I know my daughter loved them all.
