  • 5 TOP POTTY TRAINING TIPS

    5 TOP POTTY TRAINING TIPS

    Know when your child is ready. This will vary from child to child.

     

    Can be any age from 18 to 36 months. In general, girls tend to be toilet trained slightly earlier than boys - the average age for girls is 29 months, whereas for boys it's 31

     Understand that the potty training process will take time. The number one thing you need in order to successfully potty train your child is patience! Potty training is a process, it does not happen overnight. You and your child will need to work on it together and overcome any accidents and setbacks.

     Get the right equipment. A training potty is the easiest and least intimidating option for a child new to potty training. You can get all sorts of cute potties, some in the shape of your child's favorite cartoon characters. These are a good choice as you want your child to feel as comfortable as possible with the potty and enthusiastic about using it.

     Read potty-themed picture books. Many parents have found books dealing with the subject of potty training to be an extremely helpful tool in teaching their child how and why they should use the potty. These books are often humorous and encouraging, with engaging pictures which children can relate to.

     Let your child go nappy-free for an hour or two a day. Many parents recommend the technique of removing a child's diaper and letting them run around the house naked for a couple of hours a day. They will enjoy the feeling, while also learning to recognize their body's "need-to-go" signals, without the safety net of a diaper.

Do you ever wonder how its like living with a child with special needs?
Meet Prison Warden Lucy Kafura, she is a mother of two lovely Children Travis and Tracy.

When she became pregnant with Travis  in 2002, Lucy was excited and in love. Unfortunately, when she shared the news with the man of her dreams, he  could hear none of it and abandoned her. Single and pregnant, Lucy  resorted to focus on her baby and was very excited about her pregnancy.

When her baby was born, she noticed something was different with him. At  one year and a half, he was diagnosed with Autism. One time, Lucy bumped into Travis’ father in 2005 , still he had no interest in knowing the child or helping out. She has chosen to forget about him.

In her mabati house which she calls home, she survives on her meagre salary as a prison warden, and has learnt to make do as she makes her son Travis as soon as possible. They have several challenges at home, for instance at 11 years old her son is not fully potty trained and is shunned by the neighborhood kids. However his mother is proud that having joined Waithaka Special School, her son is able to feed himself. It has been a long journey and even getting a house help to stay was not easy. Waithaka Special School is a boarding school; this has helped to ease the challenge, but she misses her son alot while he is away.

Her greatest desire is to take her child to a better school, because Waithaka  has over 100 pupils and she wishes she could get a place where Travis can be rehabilitated further in order to be more independent. She also struggles with the day to day needs to feed her family. She takes a day at a time and like any mother would love to do the very best for her children.

If you can help Lucy Kafura in any way, you can get in touch with her on  0723 658770.
