Is your child potty shy, or withholding so much it leads to constipation? Every child is different, so embrace each of their journeys!
How do you toilet train a child with anxiety?
Laura and Brogan recommend that you can make the potty feel less daunting by making it part of their daily routine, and introducing personal aspects they get to choose.
When toilet training becomes a power struggle
Laura's top tip is to keep everything low pressure - even if you're in a rush or it's not going to plan, keep relaxed and let your little one know it's just a easy part of their daily routine.
