Watch Helps Parents with Potty Training
(KUTV) – Potty training is something many parents dread. First, you have to figure out whether your child is ready. And when they are ready, where to you begin. Every parent has stories of success. We spoke to one busy mom who uses a potty watch with her 2-year-old son Korver. Korver Kennedy is one of 4 children and potty training hasn’t been so easy for mom Melanie. "Especially when you have other children in the house and as a mom, you are really responsible for getting your child to potty," said Melanie. "But when you are busy and distracted with other kids, you can forget."

Melanie uses a potty watch as a reminder. The potty watch is a watch that you can buy at the store. You set a timer and when the music starts playing, it’s time to run your child to the restroom. "It just makes it a lot of fun for the kids," said Melanie. "And it is a great reminder for busy moms who can’t stay on top of it very well."

Melanie says she found success with the watch while potty training her second child. "I had tried 3 different times with him on potty training and it may have been that he wasn’t ready. So when he was ready and we tried the potty watch and it was just great."

And now it is Korver’s turn. Every time he runs to the bathroom, Korver gets and sticker and even some prizes.

Experts say parents need to be patient during the potty training stage. We included some links from Intermountain Moms with some potty training tips for parents:
