No matter how well you prepare for potty training, accidents will happen again and again. For some parents, constantly cleaning up messes may be enough to make them want to throw in the towel, abandoning the idea of potty training altogether until their child is older.
As easy as it would be to give up and keep your child in diapers, you have to stay committed. Focus on the end result rather than your current circumstances. Having a child that is diaper-free will not only save you headache and time but also money in the long run.
Persistence also shows your child that you mean business. It can teach them to be persistent when things get hard for them and can also show them the seriousness of this whole potty training thing.
