… I found something interesting.
What was I looking for? A new potty chair.
Ask any parent and they’ll tell you just how hard potty training can be. Its a long, messy process that can reduce any normal adult to a stressed out basket case willing to burst into tears with each ‘accident’ they clean up.
So yes, potty training? Not for the faint hearted. Which of course means that there’s a million and one products out there to theoretically help with the process, but not all of them are all they pretend to be. Helpful or not though, parents still end up throwing money at them in the hope that this next product will definitely end their clean-pee-from-the-coat-closet-floor days for good.
Just like with everything else though, these ‘products’ can quickly go from useful, to creative, to downright weird. Case in point: this rather ‘creative’ potty chair I stumbled upon while looking for a better potty than the one I have:
I get it of course, I do, you want your little
monster angel to sit still long enough to poop in there so you’ll try anything to hold their attention, and all grown ups take their smartphones into the bathroom these days (yes you do, stop pretending you don’t) so why not toddlers?
Makes sense, but somehow it’s just a little.. Much. Do I really want my 2 yr old to be conditioned to poop only when there’s an iPad in front of her? Not really. Do I judge others who might want to use this? Of course not, parenting is all about what works best for you and not caring about what anyone else thinks.
Me though, I think I’m going to continue my search for that allusive potty training method/product/magical spell that will finally end my pee-cleaning days once and for all. After all, there has to be something out there that helps, right?
