How To Start Potty Training
Is your child going to preschool soon? Do you want her to stop using diapers? Been there, done that! Here are some tips that can help you on how to start potty training your child easily.
- Congratulate when they sit on the toilet
I used to praise my child when she was learning to go to the bathroom. I used to stay with her, tell her what a good job she was doing, or applaud and cheer telling her “you are a big girl now!”. It made the experience enjoyable for her or him.
- Give him or her rewards
I bought some cheap toys and placed them in a dark pillowcase, so it was impossible to see what was inside.
Whenever they pooped in the toilet, I let them put their hand inside the bag and take a prize.
- Throw the diapers away
Explain to them that now they couldn’t wear diapers anymore. Then him or her to the store, and choose a underwear with their favorite characters. Tell them that their favorite character didn’t like to be all wet, so they need to let you know when they wanted to pee. It works like a charm!
- If you have a girl, let her use dresses
This is will make it easier for her to go to the bathroom, and you can avoid accidents because it is faster to lift the dress and sit on the toilet than it would be if she wore pants.
- Buy your child books
Take them to the bookstore and let them choose 5 books. They are only allowed to read them when they were sitting on the toilet. This is particularly motivating for them and I think it is the most helpful in the process of potty training.
- Let him or her imitate you
My daughter never used the potty, she went directly to the toilet! Since she saw me doing it, she did the same. It was easier to explain than teaching her to use the potty. Same can be done for boys.
- Give them freedom
Some kids can be scared of using the potty, or they can feel insecure without their diapers. Don’t force your kid to use the potty if they show reticence at first. If you can, take him or here to the store so they can choose the potty, or decorate it to their liking if you already have one. The idea is to make them comfortable with it.
- Be patient
It is a big step for them, and stressing them more than necessary can be counterproductive. The best you can do is encourage them, and show them your support.
Koreatown is composed of the retail businesses along Bloor Street between Christie and Bathurst Streets in Seaton Village. The adoption of a more liberal immigration policy by the Canadian government in 1967 led to an influx of Korean immigrants, many of whom settled in the Toronto area. Indeed, Toronto has the largest single concentration of Koreans in Canada with almost 50,000 living in the city, according to the 2001 Census. Many of them settled in the Bloor and Bathurst area, and before long, a small Korean business neighborhood emerged along Bloor Street, centered on the intersection of Bloor and Manning Avenue. Restaurants, bakeries, gift shops, grocery stores, and travel agencies began to open up, most of which catered to the Korean-Canadian community. Today, although many Koreans work in the region, very few Koreans actually live in Koreatown.

Prior to the influx of Korean immigrants in the 1980s, the section of Bloor West of Bathurst was heavily populated by people from Central and South America, and the area appears to be reverting to a Hispanic ethnic enclave today.
