I realize every child is different but I'd like to think some of the methods I've adopted through trial and error had a little something to do with that. I've heard people say that potty training girls is so much easier than boys. With no boys at home to prove this theory, I'm inclined to disagree. Potty training in general is just no fun, but I want to share 3 Tips for Potty Training Girls that I've used that have been successful for us and I hope they are for you too!
