Today I bring you tips and suggestions to help in this important stage in the lives of children, where we need a lot of patience!
Learn how to carry out the process with your child.
Books and dolls can be an ally to parents to explain the enjoyment to their children.
Life is made up of phases, and at the beginning of it, one of which we all have to go through is the enjoyment, the moment when children stop using diapers and start using the bathroom. This stage requires a lot of patience from the parents, because each child has his or her own time, and just as it can be something easy for some, for others it can mean a lot of dirt and difficulties. It is also worth pointing out that there is not a correct time for this stage, but it is around 2 and a half to 3 years and, without a concrete logic, this stage is usually easier with girls.
One of the most important points besides the patience already mentioned is the dialogue with your son. Parents should talk and explain how this stage works, without putting pressure on it and very calmly, letting the child try in his time.
What is the ideal time to enjoy it?
To find out the ideal time, parents can keep an eye on some of their child’s attitudes, as they themselves can help speed up the whole process.
A situation that is quite routine at this stage is the bother with dirty diapers, because the child begins to get more agitated, wanting to remove the diaper herself as she fills up, showing that she is not satisfied with the accessory on the body.

Another point that is important is to pay attention and observe if the child is already able to sit maintaining the position for a while without many agitations, imbalances, because it is fundamental to take it to the toilet without the risk of falls and accidents. Always stay alert.
Another detail is to observe if he can control the moment of peeing and pooping. In the beginning it is natural that the child does not know how to differentiate the moment of doing one or the other, so it is advisable to always sit in the pot even when the children want to pee, thus avoiding unexpected situations. As time goes by and the child becomes aware of the will to do everything, it will be aware of whether it is the moment of number 1 or 2.

Curiosity can also be an ally, since the child can awaken the desire to use the vase, with the papal always explaining its function. To do this, always speak slowly, calmly, teaching how to use the toilet correctly and repeating the procedure whenever necessary, until your child awakens the desire to do his needs in the toilet.
Daytime Trimming x Night Trimming
Be calm and patient, as this stage can last months, varying from child to child.
The nocturnal enjoyment is different from the diurnal, and requires even more patience. Both do not need to happen at the same time, it is even indicated to start with the daytime and, only when the child is able to get a little confidence and identify the moment and feels the need to go to the bathroom alone, move on to the nighttime. This transition stage can take time, depending once again on each child’s time.
A tip to help parents at this stage are the children’s books that talk about the subject, telling the little stories and explaining to the child what the process is like, all in a very simplified and practical way, with calm so that they understand. The use of dolls is also valid, as a way to show the posture.
It is advised that for the best understanding of the child, only one person is in charge of the enjoyment, being the father or the mother. Whoever assumes this responsibility should always be aware of the child’s schedule, until everything becomes a real routine, because the whole process can last weeks and even months.
When starting the enjoyment, both day and night, it is important that the parents do not return to the use of before, because this fact can frustrate the children and even yourself. Be calm, because unforeseen events will be normal, both on the floor and in the clothes, as well as in bed, never fight or show irritation, this will hinder the whole process.

I went through this process with Luiz Miguel for 9 years, and it was very calm. Of course it took a while to associate, I don’t remember how much, but as soon as he learned it was very fast! I was surprised by the night, because as soon as I started, he peed in bed only one night.
Already with Laura to begin the process. I bought a little something, she sat down, she knew how to differentiate, I already understood where she needed to do it. Many conversations, but I left in her time, without forcing, naturally and observing. I was not successful, because she started in the nursery and I had to interrupt.
However, during the July vacation period I resumed with full force and it worked out super well! The daytime enjoyment is almost 90%. She still has trouble when it comes to pooping. As soon as we finish, we’ll enter at night.
