Children love to role-play adult jobs, and role-playing is an excellent way to help your child learn.
School’s in session, and your child is the teacher! Children love to role-play adult jobs, and role-playing is an excellent way to help your child learn. This activity combines imaginative play with basic instruction of the skills that are so critical to toilet training success.
Line up your child’s “students” in classroom-style rows. Introduce your child as “Professor” and announce the lesson plan, “Toilet Training for Beginners.” Have your child teach the students how to use the potty or toilet. You can use your voice to make the “students” ask toilet training related questions for your child to answer. You can also act as the teacher’s assistant, refocusing your child if he or she gets off track. Your lesson can include using the potty, wiping and washing hands.
No matter what your role in this activity, be careful not to get too involved – let your child have creative reign over the classroom. Remember, the more your child can teach about toilet training, the more he or she knows. And the more your child knows, the closer you are to toilet training success!
