Potty training

Is my child ready for potty training? How do I start potty training?

These are just two of the most common questions I often get from parents.

Around the age of 18 months some children will go through the I-want-to-be-naked-and-without-a-diaper phase. They'll potty anywhere but the diaper or the potty itself. This is okay because it is a normal part of development.

They are becoming more aware of their bodily functions with some they don't exactly like. So the best thing a parent can do is direct their child to a positive, alternate way of dealing with the bodily functions. Introduce them to the potty just by encouraging them to try it. Make a big deal out of it in a very excited way. Nudge them if you have to.

Of course there may be potty training accidents here and there. Potty training is a very important part of the development in a child. They are learning and parents, care providers as well as any other important people in their life are the teachers. 

Be creative with potty training. This is a great time to learn more about your child.
