Potty training is a huge step for kids. It can also be a frustrating time for kid and parents. So what’s the secret to success with potty training? That’s what my guest, Megan Pierson, joins us to talk about in this episode.
Megan has a Master’s degree in Special Education as well as many years of experience in Childhood Development specializing in children with Autism. She uses her knowledge and experience to help other parents who find it challenging to do the little “jobs” we all have to do as parents, like sleep training and potty training. She created the sleep training/potty training manual, “Yes, You Can! A Potty Training/Toddler Sleep Manual,” which offers greater insight into potty training your child and helping your toddler sleep.
Megan was previously a guest on this show in Episode 3 ? Decoding Toddler Sleep, where we talked about how to get your toddler sleeping on a routine.
