Best Parenting Tweets: What Moms And Dads Said On Twitter This Week

As anyone who has potty trained a child knows, the process involves a lot of encouragement and rewards. You start by offering stickers, then M&M's, lollipops and more treats that used to be forbidden -- and eventually you are cheering in the bathroom like a tween at One Direction concert. You may even find yourself yelling into a phone "You went pee pee in the potty at school?!? Yayyyy! I'm SO proud of you" from the middle of the HuffPost newsroom (not that any of us have ever done such things). And while experts say positive reinforcement is a good thing during PT, one of our favorite tweets this week comes from a dad who pointed out how it can lead to some slight confusion: "My 2yo son is potty training. Wife sits down on the potty today and he yells, 'you're doing it Mama! Dats great Mama!'"

Along with another excellent potty training anecdote, this week's best tweets were everything from educational to poetic and hilarious. Click through the gallery below to read them all -- and vote for your favorites!
