Let's talk about how to create a toilet training routine. First of all, you want to give your child the opportunity to sit on the potty every time you change his diaper. You also want to make sure that you give your child the opportunity to pull his pants up and down on his own with every diaper change. And then once your child is used to sitting on the potty, then you can start taking him one to two times per hour.

You want to make sure you have lots of things for him to do in the potty, so while he is sitting on the potty, you can encourage him to sit on the potty for up to ten minutes. So every 30 to 60 minutes, you want to take your child to the potty, have him sit on the potty for up to ten minutes and then make sure you have got rewards that you can give to him if he does have a success on the potty. So if your child is sitting on the potty and he has a success, then you want to give him his reward immediately. If he does not have a success after ten minutes, then he can get up and you can tell him, "Okay" we can try again next time. So remember, you want to allow your child to sit on the potty with every diaper change. You want to take your child one to two times per hour. And have him sit on the potty for up to ten minutes. And that's how you create a toilet training routine.
