Parents and children might find potty training terrifying or difficult to do. But the simple key to achieving proper potty training is knowing whether your child is ready for it. Studies show that most children are ready to begin toilet training between 24 to 27 months, but others may be ready either earlier or later than that. Our day care can fill you in with some tips regarding readiness for potty training.
So, what do you need to look for in your child’s behavior to know whether he or she is ready for toilet training?
- A desire for independence is the first marker. If you sense that your child enjoys learning new abilities and consistently wants to do things himself or herself, then your child is ready.
- When your child usually imitates your actions.
- If his or her language skills are developed enough to communicate his or her needs and understand words about the toileting process.
- Your child must also have learned basic motor skills that are necessary for walking to the potty, pulling down his pants, and getting on it on his own.
- Be observant as well on your child’s bladder storage – if he or she has long periods with a dry diaper, his bladder can store urine longer. This signifies that the time for switching to the potty from diapers has come.
Our preschool in Florida can provide basic training to students who are ready for the potty. However, potty training must also always start at home.
If your children are potty-trained, attending school will not be that scary for them anymore. If you want to know more, call our child care in Orlando, Florida – Cub Academy – today!
