Big Little Feelings explained that new sounds, like the automatic flusher, can be scary for children. So placing something fun and welcoming over the sensor can make going to the potty more inviting while also deactivating it. If your kiddo is still struggling, let them pick the sticker.

“Giving them a choice makes them feel POWERFUL and part of the process, rather than just orders being barked at them,” the caption explained.
