Potty Training Method: Older Children
Children older then about 2 ½ years old are a little harder to potty train. They are resistant to change and are getting set in their ways. They have a “habit” of using a nappy to go pee or poo in. Stopping to go wee or poo in the toilet hasn’t gotten in the way of playing and they don’t want it to either. The same method of training a younger child is the same for an older child but consistency is even more important. When you start this method you must not stop. Be consistent and positive and make sure to always catch them in the middle of their accidents. Older children can understand reasoning a little better so you can explain more and expect more from them.
