Don’t you get bored sitting on the toilet? Adults have containers of magazines to flip through, so why not offer the kids something too. Set a basket of favorite books next to the toilet for your child to enjoy. Drawing on a chalkboard or a pad of paper can take his mind off of the fact that he is unable to get up and run around for a while.
