Children are sometimes averse to take a pee in the bathroom or lavatory. If they do it in their pants, not only make dirty home, but also the hygiene problems that should be more considered for kids. So that, it will be better to train toddler taking a pee in the bathroom. Here are the ideas from some children trainer.
First thing to do is train them with sense of belonging and sense of responsibility for the objects in the house. For example: if the child urinated in the house, tell them: “You should pee in the bathroom. So pitiful floor of (your child’s name)’s home if it is urinated continually. Now, let’s clean the floor. Next time, do not take a pee here again.”
Not easy to instill good habits to children. It takes patience and creativity to do so. Use appropriate approach suitable for their age, and do it in fun ways. For example, toilet training. Toilet training can be one of the right moment to teach good habits practically. Here are some important keys:
- Do when the child was two years old.
- Make a good habits you want to adopt. Encourage the child to the toilet every two hours, do not wait until the kids wanted to pee. For the boys, as a provocation, make some colored ice cubes, insert it into the toilet, take the child to shoot with his pee in the toilet.
- Give praise every child is succeed done it, so they will be happy and confident to do it again. The challenge can be added suitable with their increasing age, such as learning to open his own trousers.
The other thing to do is designing fun and interesting toilets for them. For example, we can take the kid-friendly things and bringing the kids world in the bathroom.
Based on the characteristics of child development, children like bright color and some animals. In line with this idea, we can decorate the bathroom with painting several animals on the wall, or even we can choose the ceramics with animal picture.
Bathroom with jungle design concept can be a unique and funny idea. Monkey hanging toothbrush and toothpaste are so exiting engaging child to brush their teeth. This corner is place to brush teeth. Adding the mirror besides, to make sure mouth clean from the toothpaste.
These examples form a standard hand-washing place coupled with small steps to help children reach their teeth or wash their hands. Pictures of elephants and monkeys on the wall is very appealing to children.
