Footloose and fancy free, Bear Cubs would rather be playing and exploring than settling down to learn to use the potty. Bear Cubs tend to be friendly and relaxed when meeting new people and trying new things, and are pretty easygoing with change.
As long as the potty training process is fun, Bear Cubs will be willing. When their interest wanders, however, Bear Cubs can be easily distracted. They don’t notice — or care — if they have a full diaper, and are unlikely to pipe up if they need a change. Your Bear Cub is curious about potty training, but he might be more interested in dropping pennies into the potty than pooping into it.
“Try not to get too frustrated with your little Bear Cub. This type of child is more easily trained when you wait and start the process later, saving everyone a lot of aggravation in the meantime. Bear Cubs can often be talked into using the potty when they’re a bit older (age 3 to 3-1/2), and can better understand and appreciate your rationale.” — Dr. Heather Wittenberg
Bear Cubs like to do things in their own way and at their own pace. Introduce the potty training process in a way that makes her think it’s her idea and, better yet, that it will fit her easygoing lifestyle by making things even easier.
