Toilet training can be an exciting time for parents and children. After all, no more diapers means less expense and less hassle. And many kids are ecstatic to finally be on verge of becoming "a big kid."

However, toilet training often doesn't go smoothly. Accidents happen. Kids lose interest. And parents often get frustrated.

How parents respond to accidents and a child's lack of interest makes all the difference in the world. This is a crucial time where your response will either motivate your child to keep going or you may scar them for life. Try to force a child to get toilet trained and he's likely to resist. However, if you don't keep working on it, you'll likely end up with a four-year-old still in diapers. So what's a parent to do?

Positive reinforcement can be the one of the best ways to motivate kids to keep working on toilet training. A sticker chart is an excellent motivator when it's done right. Some kids are satisfied by earning stickers while other preschoolers need more reinforcement.

Learn how to create an effective sticker chart reward system to motivate your child to get toilet trained fast.
