How To Potty Train After A Divorce

Going through a divorce is very stressful as parents, as well as for the children too. If you have begun potty training and the divorce has happened or you were just getting ready to start potty training and the divorce occurred, you can still have your child potty trained. Though it is stressful, you can still potty train your child in two households.

If you have started the potty training process and your child seems to be regressing from it, than it is okay to take a break for awhile until things have calmed down. They are very stressed too with the new home and change in parenting.

This can make it harder for them to know when they need to use the potty and they may not want to at this time since they are upset. You can put the potty training on hold for a bit and let your child know that it is only temporary and once things settle down and the routine is formed, that they will begin potty training again.

This many times can be the best solution, since they will not be focused on potty training and they are having to learn a completely new schedule, home and more at this time too. Stopping for a week or more is okay and your child can wear a diaper again at this time too.

But again, let your child know that that this is only temporary and that they will be going back to wearing potty training pants again when you start the process again.

Once this time period has passed or you are ready and your child is ready to start potty training, there are some things you will want to do so that the process is smooth and enjoyable at both households.

Keeping potty items, schedules and behaviors the same in both locations will ensure that your child is potty trained successfully and has an enjoyable experience too.
