I am a first-time mom and currently going through the potty training phase with my two-year-old daughter. I have read a lot about the different methods and techniques to potty train kids, and one thing that comes up a lot is the use of rewards or incentives to encourage and motivate them.
I am a bit conflicted about this approach, as I don't want my daughter to learn that she only gets rewarded for doing something that should be a normal part of daily life. At the same time, I also understand that positive reinforcement can be effective in reinforcing good behavior.
So, I wanted to ask the experienced parents out there - did you use rewards or incentives during potty training? If so, what kind of rewards worked best for your kids? Would you recommend this approach, or is there a better way to motivate them without resorting to rewards?
Any insights or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
