Are you thinking about potty training but not sure when to start? When your child starts showing signs of readiness like pulling their diaper or pull ups off after soiling it, curiosity about the potty, or attempting to sit on the potty may mean now is the time. I have been an early childcare provider for the last thirty-three and a half years and have never found a magical time or magical method that works for all children. No method should be forced. Potty training can be a challenging time as well as an opportunity for parents to bond with their child. Keep in mind that potty training is an important milestone in your child’s life and make it a positive one.
