Toilet Training Advice
Toilet training is one of those child development stages parents can find frustrating and complex. Making the transition from nappy to toilet can certainly be a challenge, particularly if you feel pressurised to start the process before your child is ready.
By choosing the right time and approaching toilet training in a calm, patient manner, you can get to grips with this new skill as quickly and smoothly as possible.
It is important to remember that every child is different so try not to compare your child to others. You may feel under pressure to 'get toilet training out the way', perhaps because you have another baby on the way, or your child may be starting nursery soon.
But rushing toilet training is counter-productive and it's worth bearing in mine that:
By the age of three, 9, out of 10 children are dry most days;
by the age of four most children are reliably dry.
So try not to worry or compete with others- wait to start toilet training at the right time for your child.
