A potty chart is a sticker chart used to reward children for continuing to use the potty after they’ve begun to toilet train. The potty chart is designed to allow your child to interact with the chart and give themselves stickers for each time/hour/day they use the potty.
WHY YOU WILL BENEFIT FROM A POTTY CHART:
- A potty chart is a great way to keep your child motivatedduring the transition from pull ups to using the potty.
- A potty chart will make using the toilet enjoyable and something to look forward to.
- Our Potty Chart is customizable. You can choose how often you want to offer the rewards!
HOW TO USE THE POTTY CHART:
When children are first learning to use the potty, it is assumed they will have accidents from time to time, so for that reason it is important to make sure there is room for error. Providing a reward each hour/day/week/month should still be given contingent on using the potty; however, you want to allow your child to have accidents at first so they continue to be motivated through the rest of the day/week/month. The sticker chart is designed to help your child with the transition, so may be different for each child. If you make the amount of time your child has to wait to earn the reward too long, your child will not be motivated. For that reason, it may be helpful to start with providing stickers every hour and reward them each day. Once they consistently earn stickers throughout the day and rewards each day, move to a reward every 2 days, then every 4 days, etc.
