How should we handle our 22-month-old's obsession with the potty?
Your son's fascination with the potty may feel like too much of a good thing right now. After all, many parents face the opposite problem: Their children pay no attention to the potty at all or are afraid of the toilet.
From your son's perspective, flushing the toilet is a demonstration of his newfound power. Let him enjoy that power. Don't turn the potty into a battleground.
The best way to handle your son's demands is to give in to them. Let him flush the toilet as much as he wants. If you do that, he'll quickly become bored with it, and the rest of his toilet training should go smoothly.
