Little kids can be a handful, especially when it is time for potty training. It can be difficult to determine when they are ready; and just as difficult to get them to cooperate and be still enough to get trained.

A potty training chart is a wonderful tool to assist you with potty training your little one. Read our tips for starting an incentive program for potty training, or scroll down to see 39 editable printable reward charts for boys and girls.

Using Rewards for potty training

Positive reinforcement is simple in nature, easily enforced, and relatively effective in its own right. However, it should be noted that the concept of delayed gratification is not understood by children younger than the age of four, and even the children who understand it struggle to put it into practice – the famous marshmallow test put that question to rest.star

It’s important to sit down and have a discussion with your little one to help them understand the end goal of potty training, the steps it will take to get there, and why it will be worth it. The purpose of using a chart to keep track of the training is, for the most part, to provide a visual stimulus and a reminder for your child of their end goal.

If you’ve decided to have your child earn a reward for learning potty training, these charts can help visually reinforce your words, actions and lessons and serve as a reminder for the delayed gratification that your little one is working towards. You may consider putting up a picture of the reward alongside of the chart as it fills, to help your child on their journey to “big-kid” status.

Tips for using potty charts

child interests

Choose wisely

Be sure to draw upon your toddlers’ natural interest in life, be it cars, trucks, dinosaurs, dolls, butterflies, fish, superheroes, art, or even Angry Birds, and help them choose a chart that will keep them focused and motivated. What makes them tick? How can you use their unique skills, talents, interests, and desires to help make the potty training simple?

Start slow

To begin, use a chart with 5 boxes across in each row. This number can be easily reached within a day and is not so high that it will discourage a child. Once you have used the five-box chart for a few days and this has become successful, you could make the amount of boxes needed for a reward higher. Continue using the chart as long as the toddler is in need of extra motivation. Eventually you will be able to phase the chart out.

Keep their eyes on the prize

Once the chart is printed out, place it in the bathroom. Make sure to keep it visible to the child, and within reach, so that it is easy to view and complete after a potty training session. Keep the reward within sight of the child but not within reach, as you want the child to remember what he or she is working towards.

go slow

Give ownership

To keep the child involved, you should let them mark the chart when progress is made. Marking can be done with crayons, markers, stamps or stickers. Stickers or stamps are often good choices because they are not messy and do not require fine motor skills.

keep it interesting

Keep it interesting

Changing the chart on a weekly basis can help keep your child excited – especially if you hang their completed charts somewhere prominent and visible in your house.
