Little Rascals

Children should begin toilet training no sooner than 20 months. Forcing your child to train before he/she is ready can result in bedwetting, frequent accidents, constipation or regression in times of stress. Some readiness signs to look for are: (1) Language skills, the ability to say "potty" or some other term which indicated that your child needs to use the bathroom. (2) An interest in staying dry or clean. (3) Staying dry during nap time. It is not a good idea to dress your child in overalls, pants with difficult fasteners or "onesies". This will be frustrating for your child. Your child's readiness is something we can discuss because consistency between our homes will be very important. This is a "Special Time" for your child, a sign that he/she is growing up. Toilet training should be a good experience; punishment for accidents is very inappropriate!!!!!! The first few years of a child?s life are the most formative years. It is a time when children effortlessly absorb concepts and habits. It is also the period when roots for a love of learning are established.
