This issue concerns many parents who do not understand why this is happening and wonder how they can help their children solve this big little problem. If this is your case, you will find some tips that you may find very useful:

1 Prepare the environment to be comfortable:

I

Decorate the health of their smiling faces, leaving their favorite stories around, put your favorite music or audio stories, and buy him a funny toilet paper. They come with cartoons, comics and even with pleasant odors. It is important that at first you invite to spend little short on time at any time of day, but then try it after meals.

I

Invite him to perform activities 2nd sitting on the toilet.

I

It is used as a chair to paint their drawings, play with it, doing homework, playing video games or read a story. The goal is to perform activities of daily life, fully dressed in the bathroom and thus become familiar with the space and relativize their fear. At first I accompany it doing your things like reading or calling someone on the phone.

I

3rd Take your child to the library to find a book on the subject.

I

Read him the book and ask her questions about the story and characters, but do not use moralizing or try to indoctrinate him with phrases like "see, this child is not afraid and you yes?" At night, invents a story about another character that I was afraid to go to the bathroom and ask for help to tell the story of how he overcame his fear.

I

4th reward every little achievement.

I

No matter you do not want to become illusions and you're afraid that this time it has controlled the only sphincter. Every time your child goes to the bathroom by yourself, celebrate it in style and tell the rest of the members of the family to congratulate him.

I

5th Let him see that it is normal to feel fear.

I

Tell what were you afraid when you were their age and how you overcame those fears. But again, be sure to only convey the story and do not push with phrases like "why do not understand how you afraid of nonsense like this." These sentences will only achieve further block.

I

There are millions of tricks to get your child go to the bathroom alone and most work just fine if you have patience and treat the child with respect. If you apply these two simple premises and not let perceive your own fears and frustrations when you do not get to first, all is well.
