Potty Training Without Pressure

Every child goes through it

Help your child make it through this first hurdle in life as successfully and contented as possible.

Potty Training can be one of the most difficult times for parents of young children. It seems like everyone who's ever had children is ready to give you advice. Some say start late, some say start early. Some say bribe and/or punish, some say never bribe or punish. So how do you sort it all out? This workshop will review what you already know about potty training and brings you the explanations of the experts. You will learn how to identify when your child is ready and review some aids that might help you while you struggle through this time. You will learn:

  • the importance of potty training
  • 4 basic potty training methods, and
  • common problems that you can expect.

Wednesday, June 3, 2015 from 6:30-8:00pm in Clark Auditorium at Lowell General Hospital's Main Campus
