Great Introduction to Potty Training, but NOT a Miracle Work

(5 out of 5 stars)
"This 30 minute video is a great introduction to the potty world. My 2 1/2 year old son loves this video and for the first two weeks we watched it at least once, if not twice a day, per his request.
What this video does is walk your child though the various stages of using the potty...emphasizing the ideas of:
- being a "Big Kid"
- saying goodbye to diapers
- what you can do when you are sitting on the potty
- wiping your bottom (emphasizing wiping front to back)
- washing your hands
- wearing underwear
The songs are cute and fun, but they will get stuck in your head! This helped, as I would sing the little diddys while my son sat on the potty and he loved it. The kids in the video do a great job, although I'm guessing they are 4 or 5 years old. Having real kids in the video was the big selling point for me, as I thought my son would relate more to them than a cartoon.
At the end of the video there is a 5 minute clip of potty training tips that is good for any parent to listen to.
I used this video in preparation for our first attempt at potty training. While I think this video helped prepare my son for our first attempt (he would sit willingly on the potty, but never went - even after five days of trying!) I want to stress that this video is by no means a miracle worker that is going to ensure that your child is potty trained in one to two days (and it by no means makes those promises, either!) We are taking a break and will try again in a few weeks. Good luck to you in your potty training endeavors!"
