Potty Training

There are many good books on potty training. One of the keys to successful potty training is waiting until your child shows physical and emotional signs that he or she is ready (see one of the books below). If you start potty training too early, it might take longer to train your child. Once you think your child is ready, try to pick a time to begin when you can be home more often than usual with not much going on. A weekend at home with few activities planned is a perfect time to begin. Just like anything else, it is easier to learn a new skill with as few distractions as possible.
