When potty training a two-year old, it’s important to give them lots of encouragement. So, my wife and I developed the habit with Stephen Caleb of saying “good job!” whenever he was, well, productive on his little plastic potty.
So now, if he hears a porcelain seat being lowered, he drops what he’s doing to run into the bathroom and give its current occupant some hand clapping and cheerleading: “Aaayyy. Good job!”
Oddly enough, I appreciate the affirmation.
