Potty training is a responsibility that many parents dread. Having kid-friendly tools available makes the process go smoother. Stickers, charts, videos, songs and games can all be helpful during this, often difficult, job of potty training. Fortunately, there are many free potty training kits available. Here are four that offer great resources for potty training.
