Potty training is a process, which both parents and child have to go hand in hand. Both of them have to share their time and should be patient; during this training period. Here is a start potty training review.
Potty training mainly depends on a child’s mental and physical readiness; rather than any age. If your child is ready and smart at younger age then you can always teach them at younger age itself. For example, some children might show interest by the age of 2, but some won’t even show interest even when they have attained an age of 3 and half or even four. If your child is not showing interest, then don’t worry, but be patient. Some children do take time for learning. So to determine whether your child is ready for training or not, you can always ask yourself these questions.
Whether your child is interested in going alone or wearing underwear alone?
Does my child can follow instructions?
Whether he or she can say by facial expression that they want to go to toilet?
Does your child stay dry for 2 -3 hours?
Does your child often complain about wet diapers?
Is your child ready to sit on potty seat?
If you have given answers to all your questions as yes, then don’t worry, your child is ready for proper potty training. If your answer is no, most of the time, then never rush to train your child. It sure is a time consuming process.
You can use a potty chair for starters, potty chairs are small portable chair where you child can easily sit on it. But do make sure that your child’s feet lie flat on the floor. You must first make aware the use of potty chair by showing how the waste on diapers is being thrown in to the chair. You can also make you child see how remaining family members use toilet.
