When you go into this parenting thing, you assume the responsibility for molding and shaping a little life and for teaching them about the world. Little do you know that they will be teaching you plenty along the way as well. Even as a second-time mom, there are still plenty of things I’m learning from my tiny, little baby.
Potty training. Just the words alone are enough to strike dread into the hearts of parents. There are plenty of books and blog posts out there promising potty training magic to the hopeful masses with titles like: “18 Easy Steps To Potty Training Your Child” or “How To Potty Train a Kid in 10 Days.” But, I’m not here to give you a laundry list or detailed how-tos.

I am here to share the one and only potty training tip you’ll ever need.
