Toilet Training Twins. When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.

I recently went through my diary of back when I was potty or toilet training my twins. The quote, “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” would play on my mind.

Toilet Training TwinsMy girls were 2.5 years when I actively took up the parenting challenge of toilet training them together. At the time in pursuit for finding a solution I purchased:

  • 5 potties of size, comfort, colour and design;
  • 2 Toilet inserts (one to fit under the set and over);
  • Tens of tens of quality training pants from hand sewn design from etsy, cheap towling from China, teeny-weeny undies from Big W, pull up nappy pants to absolutely bare bottoms;
  • I spent a small fortune on charts, videos, books (Dumpy and the Gang), iPad Apps, and bribery like stickers and chocolate;
  • I have made up songs and danced around the bathroom chanting “poo poo in the potty” and made every sound of concentration, clapping and encouragement of support;
  • Grumbled at my own inadequacies as I am reminded I was toilet trained at 21 months and colleagues and friends children were defiantly toilet trained by 2…

Now I just accept that sometimes it doesn’t matter what I do (except install one of those fantastic tiny toilets from kindy) that if the child is not ready, sometimes you just got to wait a little longer to support them.
