Potty Adventure DVD: A Review and a Giveaway!

Potty Training is not my strength with parenting. I don't look forward to it, and I think it is a huge job! Caleb is 3 years old, and not interested in using the toilet....at all! He would be fine to wear diapers forever (OK, maybe not forever, it just seems that way). I was so happy with the DVD I got to review: Pocket Snails Potty Adventure! The DVD has 3 little snails explaining the steps of potty training to Jake's little sister, Wendy. I think this DVD explains things very well to kids. They do a great job encouraging, too! The DVD even includes a Map of the things they talk about. The first step is to know the feeling that you have to go. Then, you tell your Mom or Dad. It goes through all the steps to the final step of washing your hands. I really like how the video uses the terms for when you were younger you wore diapers, and now that you are older you will use underwear. I like that the DVD doesn't imply that kids are still babies if they wear diapers. Some DVD's do that, and I think that can be demeaning to kids. During the DVD, the Pocket Snails spend most of their time in the bathroom and take pictures of the things they do. Caleb and Madelyn were really enjoy the movie. I am hoping that this will spark an interest in Caleb wanting to go! Thank you Pocket Snails! This DVD is for kids ages 2 and up.

I've got two girls 14 months apart. Oldest is FINALLY potty trained (thank heavens...she's almost 4) and now I want to keep the momentum going with the almost 3 year old. The same tactics aren't working "no potty, momma.....DIAPER!". I am all about trying something new and this DVD looks like it could be just the ticker.

How did our mothers get us trained without all these great books and DVDs??
