“Do you know that potty training revolves around a timetable? Age is not the major factor to distinguish the right time for potty training, as many believe. Majority of parents try to follow a rubric of milestones as to when a child’s next developmental stage will begin. However, the truth is that a child can be successful at potty training at any age. It all depends on the individual child’s behavioral signs of readiness. In order to know if you and your child are ready for the task of potty training, you need to be able to recognize a few key signs.” ~Natasha You can read more about these signs HERE!
“…as the months rolled by, I was getting scarily closer to that becoming reality. I mean, I tried. Somewhat. I would ask the twins if they needed to potty, sometimes. I implemented a rewardsystem using stickers. I would sit them on the potty. However, Iwill admit, I wasn’t consistent. It tried training them when we were home and when I remembered. Raising twins is always a bit chaotic, even for a control freak like me. My family has a pretty active social life and we are rarely home, so it was difficult to implement. Plus, my kids were in preschool. And although they would assist with potty training, it was difficult to be as consistent as I was at home because they have several other kids in the classroom.” ~Rashain Make sure you read Rashain’s tips for a successful go at potty training HERE!
