Recently, one mom shared with us how this played out in her house. Enjoy!
Adelaide (almost 3) has been interested in using the potty for a while. She has an older sister, Cait, and wants to be just like her.
We love ALL the Signing Time DVDs, and both of our girls have been signing since they were under a year old… before they were talking. Adelaide was delayed in speech, but not in communication, thanks to Alex, Leah, and Rachel. So, it has worked out perfectly that there is a Potty Time DVD too!
I really wasn’t ready to start working on potty training, but Adelaide is more than ready. We purchased the Potty Time watch, too. And, I have to say… she loves it. There’s just something about wearing a cute little toilet on your wrist, I guess. The music is cute, and the timer options are very helpful.
So, we love the Potty Time video. When it came in the mail, we had a family “viewing party” complete with popcorn! The cartoon Alex, Leah, and Hopkins are colorful and cute, the songs are catchy and easy to learn, and the kids and families are beautiful!
I love how the DVD covers what could be a “delicate” topic to some folks with honesty and matter-of-factness. Our bodies ARE amazing, and bladder and bowel control is a learned skill that often takes practice, practice, and more practice. Adelaide has been doing well at listening to her watch (and her body) and going to the bathroom when it is time. She has had some accidents, but then, that just gives her an excuse to sing “Uh-oh, it’s an accident!” (click the link to hear a sample!) We just get cleaned up and move on.
Another high quality product from Signing Time. Thanks!
