Bridging Adult Differences through a Problem-Solving Approach to Toilet Learning with Toddlers.
This practicum addressed the problem faced by a child care center in dealing with parents from various ethnic backgrounds who possessed different views on toddler toilet training. The goal of the 10-week project was to establish an environment in the toddler program that allowed teachers and parents to approach toilet training cooperatively. During the first week, parents and teachers were surveyed about their attitudes toward toilet training, from which staff developed a plan of action for working with each parent. Staff then provided parents with educational materials on toilet training and initiated weekly communications between parents and teachers concerning each child's toilet training experiences. The strategy empowered the parents and teachers to identify and resolve issues regarding toilet training, successfully reducing conflicts between parents and teachers. (Four appendixes provide copies of the parent and teacher surveys as well as toilet training observational journals and logs.) (MDM)
