Potty training charts are visual aids that can be used to track and reward a child’s progress during the potty training process. They serve as a motivational tool and provide a sense of accomplishment for the child as they complete various milestones in their potty training journey.

The Benefits of Potty Charts

  • Visual Representation: Potty training charts typically have a grid or series of boxes that represent days, weeks, or specific tasks related to potty training. The visual representation helps children understand their progress and gives them a clear sense of what is expected of them. Providing reinforcement and rewards for smaller accomplishments during the process of potty training will encourage your child to reach the last stages of potty training successfully.
  • Goal Setting: The chart allows parents and children to set achievable goals together. These goals can be simple tasks like sitting on the potty, using the toilet successfully, or washing hands afterward. Breaking down the process into smaller steps makes it less overwhelming for the child and helps them stay focused.
  • Tracking Progress: Each time the child successfully completes a task related to potty training, such as using the potty or staying dry throughout the day, they get to mark or place a sticker on the chart. This helps them visually see their progress and reinforces positive behavior.
  • Reinforcement and Rewards: Potty training charts often include a section for rewards. When a child reaches a certain number of stickers or completes a specific number of tasks, they earn a reward. These rewards can be simple and age-appropriate, such as a small toy, a sticker, a favorite snack, or extra playtime. The anticipation of earning rewards motivates children to continue working towards their potty training goals.
  • Consistency and Routine: Potty charts establish a daily routine and provide consistency in the potty training process. Children thrive on routine, and having a chart helps create structure and predictability. It reminds both parents and children to consistently reinforce positive habits and behaviors.
  • Positive Reinforcement and Confidence: Potty training charts focus on positive reinforcement rather than punishment. By acknowledging and rewarding a child’s successes, they feel encouraged and confident in their ability to master potty training. This positive reinforcement approach helps build self-esteem and a positive association with the potty training process.
  • Parent-Child Interaction: Potty charts encourage active involvement from parents or caregivers. It becomes a shared activity where parents can celebrate their child’s achievements, provide support, and offer encouragement. This interaction strengthens the parent-child bond and makes potty training a more enjoyable and collaborative experience.

Every child is unique, and different strategies may work for different children. Potty training charts are just one tool among many that can assist in the potty training process. It’s important to be patient, consistent, and supportive throughout the journey, and to tailor the approach to your child’s individual needs and development.

How to Use the Charts

Print out the potty training charts to help motivate and reward your child throughout the potty training process.  Each time your child is successful, either give him or her a sticker or cut out and paste a star in the appropriate place.

There are two kinds of Potty Charts on this site

Either a blank chart or a chart with five different milestones:

1) Blank Potty Training Chart: You can give the child a sticker for each accomplishment no matter what it is, or you can use different colored stickers or stars for various achievements. For example, letting you know that the child needs to go, pulling down pants, urination, bowel movements, staying dry all day.

2) Potty Charts with Milestones: These potty training charts have five different milestones, and the child receives a sticker each time she reaches one:

I said that I needed to use the potty | I pulled down my pants by myself | I sat on the potty | I used the potty | I stayed dry all-day

How does a potty chart work?

Potty charts basically remind you to praise your child’s effort during potty training and recognize minor achievements along the way. Our printable potty charts list the milestones that your child needs to reach to be potty trained. These milestones are as follows:

I said that I needed to use the potty | I pulled down my pants by myself | I sat on the potty | I used the potty | I stayed dry all-day

This way, even if your child doesn’t stay dry all day, she still gets recognition for partial success (such as recognizing the need to go). Compliment her and let her know what a good job she is doing even if she doesn’t make it to the potty on time.

For some kids getting stickers on their potty chart will be all they need to keep them motivated. Other kids will be happy to receive compliments and don’t need any additional incentive. Some kids will want a prize when they complete their chart or each time they are successful. We call this a “potty prize,” and if you are going to give one, then you might find it helpful to keep a jar of small prizes handy during potty training. See what works for your child.

Isn’t giving my child a “potty prize” a form of bribery?

A reward is given AFTER your child successfully uses the potty. A bribe is given BEFORE. You should give your child a “potty prize” soon after she successfully uses the potty to make a firm association between the “potty prize” and the success on the potty. The “potty prize” motivates your child to do something that requires effort on her part. It gives her an incentive to stick with it until it becomes a habit.
