Day 2 is bound to be a little easier because both of you know what to expect and both of you have learned some lessons about potty training from the day before. Keep on applying the techniques used in Day 1.
This is where patience really starts to play a big role. If your child has been having quite a few accidents, it might be tempting to throw in the towel and put them back into diapers. This is exactly the wrong move to make.
It pays to remember that we all had to learn at one time or another. I don’t remember learning to use the potty and I am sure that you do not either. I do, however, remember learning to drive – it took me a good few lessons before I managed to get it right. Imagine if the driving instructor had given up on me after the second lesson. I would not have had the confidence to try again for a number of years. The same principle applies to your child when they are potty training.
In some instances, it might not seem that you have made any progress in either Day 1 or Day 2. Again, do not let this put your off. If you are consistent, your child will catch on and get it right in next to no time at all.
