When starting potty training, it is important to remember there is no right way to potty train your child or a right age for them to learn to use the potty. These are some tips that may work for your child!
Many children develop the physical ability to have control over their bowels around 18 months. A child’s emotional ability to learn how to use the potty can range. Some children are ready around 18 months, while others are not ready until they are 3 years old or older.
At Concordia Place, we usually begin noticing signs of potty training in our two year-old classrooms. We like to think of potty training as a partnership with families. If teachers start to notice signs of potty training readiness, they will let families know and want families to do the same! For example, if a teacher notices a child is waking up from nap time and their diaper is dry, they might ask the child if they want to sit on the potty during a diaper change. As the child continues to show signs of potty training readiness and is more successful using the potty both at home and at school, we can try out wearing underwear during the day! This usually starts at home over the weekend and if successful, we will try it out at school! Your child’s teacher is always a good resource for more potty training tips and to see about your child’s potty training readiness!
These are all available at the Chicago Public Library!
