  • I've potty trained alot of kids...lol...check my profile! Anyway, over the years the "rules" of potty training have change alot. When I first started potty training it was said you had to have the baby completely potty trained by age 2, and you should punish them for going in their pants. Even a spanking. This was the advice I got about potty training. I couldn't bring myself to spank my baby for that. I didn't spank her I just praised her when she did go in the potty. She was potty trained before 2. That IMO was a rarity....luck or something. After all these years of potty training, I think: 1) pull-ups are a waste of money and slow the whole process down. 2) Don't pressure the child, don't punish for accidents, praise for pottying, and most important of all, let the child lead the process, if you wait until they are ready they will train themselves.

  • My youngest son didnt potty train until age 4! We tried everything however he was not ready! One thing to do is to praise him when he does use the potty! Goodluck!
