The Ins and Outs of Potty Training

The toilet training experience is unique to each child, and the first step is emotional and physical readiness. Does your child complain about his dirty diapers, know when he needs to use the bathroom, and understand what the potty is used for? Is he able to walk to the toilet and remove his clothes to use it. If your answers are "yes", then he may be ready to start potty training. Start by talking or reading about the process, and even consider modeling how to do it. Make the potty environment and experience inviting by introducing a stack of books or a favorite toy. Dress him in clothes that will be easy for him to remove. And here's an extra tip for boys: teach them to sit down for both functions until they've mastered potty use; it will cut down on a lot of mess!
