Toddlers can't potty train themselves. (If they did, you wouldn't be reading this, huh?) So in order to be potty masters, kids need a good potty coach. That means YOU! As a potty coach, you need to be cool, calm and collected, no matter what gets thrown at you (sometimes literally) Remember to smile through it all, take deep breaths—even if you're ready to throw that potty seat against the wall!
