  • Wait. Potty training is SO much easier when your child is 2 or more, as her control of her body functions is better, her communication skills are better, and she has a keener awareness of the subtle social do's and don'ts that come to be associated with toileting. I struggled to train my first son when he was about 18 months old and it was frustrating and stressful for both of us. With my later kids, I waited until they were ready (telling me they were ready) and training was/is a breeze!!

  • at one? wow must be nice, lol. anyways, most kids aren't ready until 2-3 years old.. and if they can't communicate that they have to go, they aren't ready.

  • All of mine were between 2 and 2 1/2 before I started. Just wait a little bit longer.
