Thinking About Potty Training?
Are you thinking about Potty Training your toddler, but are not quite sure exactly how to go about it?
Or, like Nancy, the parent of a two year old boy, you have you purchased a potty chair, placed in the bathroom, but your child won't even sit on it.
You are getting confused by all conflicting information from the media, from your relatives and friends. You have seen all the information about infant potty training (too late for that!). Your Mother-in-law tells you that your husband was potty trained by the time he was a year old. Your Mom tells you that you and your sibling were trained by the time you were 18 months. Your friend tells you that she potty trained her toddler in just one day.
Aaaagh - what should you do?????
If you are like most people, you want to know these two simple things:
- When should I start potty training my child?
- How should I potty train my child?
I wish these questions had simple answers such as:
- You should start potty training your child at 30 months
- Follow these 5 steps and your toddler shall be potty trained.
But, alas, it is NOT that simple.
ONE shoe does NOT fit all.
Each child is an individual and each family has its own way of doing things. What works for one child or one family may not necessarily work for the next.
That is why there are many different techniques and methods for potty training and there is such a great selection of products.
You as the parent have to make a choice and decide what is not only right for you, but also for your child. Children have different personalities and selecting a method that suit the child's personality and learning style will make it easier for all involved.
Therefore, our goal here at Potty Training Concepts, is to provide you with all the information and tools you need to create your own plan for potty training your child.
We hope that after you have spent some time reading all the different articles and tips on potty training, you will agree, that potty training your child can actually be fun and you can create wonderful memories that you will share with your children
or What is the right age to start potty training?
Just like all the other developmental skills such at crawling, walking and talking, potty training is a developmental skill that you toddler will master when s/he is ready. And like most parents, or at least most moms, you will one day recall and share the experience with friends and family!!
If you ask for advice on potty training - you will be sure to get it. Not only will friends and family tell you how to potty train you boy or girl, they will tell you when or at what age you should be potty training your toddler.
