Potty Training After a Divorce or Separation


Many parents share custody of their children, which presents a unique problem when it comes to potty training. It's best to discuss potty training and agree on a strategy before you start. Both parents need to be informed about potty training and have the necessary potty training aids.

Potty Training Aids

To maintain consistency throughout the potty training process, it's best if both parents either share the potty training aids or purchase the same aids. This way your child will have a potty seat she is comfortable with at each parent's home.

Potty Training Methods

Both parents need to use similar potty training methods so your child doesn't get confused. Make sure you are both informed and decide how you're going to handle potty training instruction, rewards, and accidents.

In some cases, the divorced or separated parents don't have a good relationship and this level of communication is not possible. If this is your situation, it may be easiest to pack your child's potty seat along with a note describing your potty training strategy (and any other necessary information) and send it with your child.
