JoyTales presents the first stories for bedtime and any other time of the day!

Hughly, the flower that wanted to grow
The story of the ugly flower that becomes beautiful and colored every time it manages to keep a Dyeing Butterfly tight inside its petals helps children understand that, sometimes, it is necessary to concentrate and “hold” in order to gain useful advantages like not wetting their pants. During the delicate process of potty training, children should manage to keep their wee until they get to the potty and - finally! – sit on it. The ugly flower, metaphor of this need, favors the possibility of bladder control occurring more rapidly and reduces accidents along the way. These accidents are very common during the weeks following the decision of taking the nappy off.
