Signs Of Readiness

Physically the child must be able to hold his or her bladder before able to potty. This is because it shows she can hold it before he or she can get to a potty. Another sign is mentally ready by the child showing interest in wanting to use the potty. This can help making it easier to use the potty. One other sign is he or she acknowledging that she has used the restroom in her diaper.

Parental reasons to start

As a parent you want your child to be happy and stop using diapers. Potty training is just the beginning of a child being independent and in control of their body. This will help financially due to the fact that you won't have to waste money on diapers and wipes. It also teaches you as a parent to be patient, supportive, and encourage your child.

Optimal Time

Toddlers usually learn around the age of 1and a half to 3 years old. The most optimal time is when he shows great interest in potty training or when his diapers are dryer than usual. This shows he can hold his or her potty and can wait until he or she reaches a restroom.

Why it is important?

The toddler learns independency, responsibility, and self control. This helps the muscles get used to controlling, and when to use these muscles. some skills that are needed before starting is self-dressing because they need some sense of they can do anything on their own. This will help out the process so much better.
