I have always started potty training at 18 months, but the children don't really get it until they are 2 and a half. Girls tend to be faster than boys. When they can say "pee-pee" or "poo-poo" and can pull their pants up and down, it's time to start. Also, the child must be interested in the bathroom. They will play in the toilet, drop things in, or like to flush.
