We do not have a formal potty training for him. What we did is we tried to observe when he would be ready. I have heard of people (close relatives) scolding their child for peeing in his/her pants, and some even resort to corporal punishment when it comes to potty training. Corporal punishment will not be the last resort to any kind of training, nor it should be used as way to discipline children.
The first thing we try to get him to learn is to recognize his potty. We bought him quite a number of potty. Just bought a new one couple of weeks back as he has outgrown his existing one. Somehow, he loves playing with his potty. Some times ago, he even tried to put his potty onto his head as a hat.
For a start, we will repeatedly tell him that if he wanted to pass motion, he have to tell us “ng ng”. Every time he pass motion in his pants, we will remind him that he need to say the magic words so that we can put him onto his potty. Some time ago, he got thrilled with the word “ng ng” and sometimes he will tell us “ng ng” when he do not even intend to pass motion. At this point, papa and mummy is already scratching the head.
Couple of week back, when he was playing in the living room, he run very fast to get his potty and come to us, and tell us “ng ng”. Mummy asked him “Are you sure?”. He said “ng ng” again, but by the time we took off his pants, he had pass motion in his diapers. “I’m sorry for not believing in you,”said mummy. Having said that, mummy clean him up and gave him a kiss. Now, whenever he came to us bringing his potty, we know what he wanted to do, and we will help him up. After some 2 week of practice I can now declared that my boy is trained. Now we are working on how to teach him “she she” (means peeing), but that will be another story.
