Early V's Late Potty Training

I picked up on an interesting article outlining the benefits of Early over late potty training. What the writter also fails to mention is the fortune saved in not having to buy nappies (diapers) for an extra couple of years! Check it out below, she also mentiones her method for Potty training in three days - but I'm pretty sure the free method posted here will be just as effective!...

Many doctors and or psychologist will tell you to not potty train until your child is 3 or 4 years old. Some even say to not potty train the child at all; that they will potty train themselves when they are ready which they say is between the age of 4 and 5 years old. I personally don't know how and where they got their statistics because I have found the exact opposite.

Through my many years of potty training I have found that parents that start introducing the idea of potty training to their children at a very young age have faster and easier success then those parents that wait until the child is much older.

Children that are younger are more impressionable, they are not set in their ways. The closer to the age of three that a child gets, the more set in their ways they get. They become comfortable in their diaper and in how they do things.

The older the child gets the harder and longer it takes parents to get their child potty trained. Children at this age know how to control the situation and they use their control. They are also very comfortable with the way things are so getting them to change is hard.

I have found that most children at the age of 22 months old are ready to potty train and can be trained in as little as three days. At you can find a potty training guide that gives a fail proof test to test the readiness of your little one. If your little one can pass this easy test then they are ready to be potty trained.

Why wait for a child to reach the age of 4? Why make it harder on you later? Why change diapers for another two years?

Is your child already 3 or 4 years old? Well the good news is that it's not too late. You too can potty train in as little as three days. You might have a little more of a fight on your hands but it can be done!!

Now, I'm not a doctor or a psychologist but I am a mother of 6 kids and I have had 8 foster kids. I have also successfully helped in potty training over 2100 children from around the world. I personally feel I'm an expert in Potty Training. So in my "expert" opinion I believe that if you potty train early you will have faster and easier success.

How do you tell someone that they need to potty train their child?? My bestfriends daughter is 3 1/2 and my friend refuses to toilet train her. She has a ton of excuses and just can't be bothered. She says it's easier to change diapers than to potty train. Her daughter showed signs of being ready over a year ago and my friend discouraged her from using the toilet. I feel bad for this kid. My friend also has a 1 1/2 year old and is pregnant again. She is a fantastic mother and amazing person I jut don't know how to encourage or motivate her!! It is reassuring that I read here that it is not uncommon for children to be 3-4 and not be toilet trained yet.

I have 3 children. When my last was about 11 months old she pooped in the tub. The next morning she started straining again so I plopped her on the potty and she finished the poop there. On a whim I put her on the potty again and made the "shhhh" sound. She peed. We clapped, told the poo poo bye bye as we flushed and made a big deal out of every "episode". She was fully potty trained by 16 months. I wish that I had tried this with the other two kids. It is wonderful to not have to clean up 2 year old poopie diapers and the money we have saved on diaper sna wipes is GREAT. All kids are diffent but if you keep on with the encouragement I think that all kids can be trained by 2 or 2.5 at the latest.
