Oh I only wish that were the case!
To be honest, I’ve been avoiding it with Jr. It was such a long, drawn out process with MaM, that turned into such a battle of the wills, that I really don’t want to think about doing it again.
But then I got an intriguing email from Joy Berry’s books (the children’s author who writes very straightforward books on emotional topics for kids)…would I like to review the iPhone App: I Love Potty Training?!?!
I laughed. Of course!! Of course my iPhone would potty train Jr for me! It already reminds me of appointments, keeps track of my groceries, holds my workouts and tracks my calories….of course it would potty train my boy!!
The I Love Potty Training app includes both the girl and boy version of the classic Joy Berry books, The Potty Book for Boys and the Potty Book for Girls. It also has a fun potty-themed games (MaM found those right away), and a reward chart right on the phone.
The app is easy to use, and both of my children liked listening to the “Potty Book for Boys” and the “Potty Book for Girls”. I think they really just like listening to the words “pee-pee” and “poo-poo”, but I’m hoping that it helps get the concept across to Jr!
In addition to the child-friendly parts of the app, there are also tips and tricks for parents, and a way to email (to print) a success certificate when your child has finished the “training” phase.
All in all, I thought the app was very easy to use, the information was helpful and my kids enjoyed it–we’re a few months away from actually getting down to business with junior, but I think it will come in handy when it’s time!
Thanks to Joy Berry books for providing me with this app to review It’s available in the iTunes store!
