Knowing Your Child's Currency (Rewards)

If you have a daughter, you may be wondering when she will be ready to potty train. Every child is different, so there is no exact right age or time to start potty training her. Instead, it will be the signs that she shows you that she is ready to start potty training.

Every child learns at different speeds and catches on to potty training differently, so it will really depend on your daughter's personality and how she takes to it and develops with the potty training.

However, again there are signs to look for that will let you know that she is ready to start or at least start the pre-potty training process to begin with. Since every child is different, how quickly you move through the pre-potty training to the potty training will vary. But, if she is showing all of these signs or a just a few of them, you will know that she is ready to begin.

Signs to look for include:

When your daughter is showing some or all of these signs, than it is a perfect time to get started, since she has naturally become interested in wanting to go and use the bathroom.

You do not want her to lose interest in going to the bathroom. So it is important to get started right away when you see her exhibiting these signs of wanting to go. This will make the entire potty training process so much easier and it will also be more fun and exciting too.

When potty training hygiene is definitely a consideration for both genders, however, special consideration need to be given to avoid future problems with infection.

Even after a child has been potty trained and has accepted the full responsibilities associated with potty training i.e. getting to the potty by themselves, pulling pant up and down, washing hands etc, wiping seems to remain a parental responsibility!

It is difficult for a children to do a good job of wiping themselves. Poor clean up can be irritating in more way than one!

How long you help your child will depend on your child and yourself. Some children will get to a point where they will want more privacy and hence will not want your help, while others do not like being dirty and will want your help until they are older.

Bottom line: Do what works for you, your child and your family!! Be assured - everything being typical - there will come a time when your child will not longer need or want your help!

As a parent, it is your job your stress good habits right from the beginning.
