A Word from the Author
As a step-mom of three and with two toddlers of my own, potty training was quite a stress in our lives. Some of the children had a an extremely difficult time with it because they would rather wet themselves than get up from their play or they would wait too long and couldn't hold it to the potty. We would do our best to remind them to go as often as possible, but they weren't always with us or we would get busy with one thing or another and forget. That is where the idea of the WeeMinder® sprang from.
Grandparents, babysitters, and daycare workers can't be held responsible to remind the potty trainer to go to the potty every hour and parents have enough to worry and think about to remember to send their toddler to the potty. Not only will the WeeMinder® do all the thinking for you, but it adds a fun and exciting element to potty training that everyone needs!
The adult sets the WeeMinder® to go off and the WeeMinder® does the rest. It reminds and encourages the toddler with a jolly and catchy song that both parent and toddler will be singing and looking forward to every time they hop to The Potty Place.
Research has shown that potty training needs to be fun and practiced on a set schedule with a repetitious routine until the child starts to recognize when they have to go themselves. This doesn't mean that once they feel it themselves once, they are trained. It takes many successful attempts and sometimes months or years of these successes to become fool proof.
Obviously, set times all through-out the day is ultimately the best way to train your toddler, but jobs, phone calls, dinner, laundry, bills, spills, and squabbles get in the way and our innocent trainees have a disappointing accident because they weren?t reminded to try to go. So give yourself a break and let the WeeMinder® do all the work for you and celebrate your toddler's Potty Animal success.
