How To Potty Train Girls- Preparing Your Princess
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

So, it s time to potty train your little princess, and you are trying to figure out how to potty train girls! There is a belief that girls are easier to potty train than boys because girls supposedly mature at a faster rate than boys. It is also said that girls are easier to train because potty training a boy is usually two-fold (trained first sitting down, then standing up). Maybe there's some truth to that, but I believe that it has more to do with a child's individual maturity level and personality. Nonetheless, if you have a little girl, here are a few things you should take into account.

IS SHE READY? The first thing that you want to do is determine if your daughter is ready to be potty trained. Make sure that she is able to manuever her clothing to use the potty when it's time, and that she's showing some interest in using the toilet.

SHOPPING TRIP! The next thing to do is to take her shopping for her new undies! Let her pick them out. It can be her favorite color or cartoon character. If you are learning how to potty train girls, you should remember that things may go along a bit smoother if your little princess has her princess undies on! Especially if she picked them out herself!

HOW TO POTTY TRAIN GIRLS: ON THE POTTY OR TOILET Using a potty chair to potty train your girl is a great route to go. This way, her feet are firmly placed on the floor, which will relax her pelvic muscles. It is still okay to use a toilet, just make sure that you place a step stool under her feet. Have her sit on the potty, knees apart. Also make sure that she is sitting all the way back, with her privates and bottom over the toilet or potty opening. Having her sit in this position will also help to relax the pelvic muscles.

HAVE PATIENCE Remember to be patient when you are potty training your daughter. Actually, this rule should apply to boys and girls. Expect her to have accidents and mistakes, and always remember to be supportive, reassuring and positive.

If you want to know how to potty train girls, start with taking her shopping for her brand new underwear, and be aware of her physical placement on the potty seat or toilet. But, most of all, have patience with her. It may take her a little while, but your little girl will eventually get there.
