When do kids or should kids start showing intrest in potty training or be potty trained by? I know all kids are at different pace but im just wondering whats the oldest.

They can start as early as 18 months and go up until 3 or 4. 

 

Why?

No, she's fine. And who cares really, when they are trained, well, as long as they are trained by 4, which is about normal. My dd kept having accidents because she really didn't "get it." Now at 3 1/2 she is finally trained, understands when she has to go. and has no accidents. We started training casually at 2 1/2 but she peed all over. I stepped back, picked it back up at age 3 but she wasn't quite there. Mind you, she's otherwise very smart, I guess this has nothing to do with it. What really helped was Potty Power, a DVD I bought on Amazon.com. She watched it once, ripped off her diaper and proclaimed "No more diapers!"

My dd is smart also she just is very very stubborn and hard headed and its her way or the high way. Shes very headstrong and difficult sometimes. I hate to say that but she is.

Yes, exactly! My dd is extremely stubborn. She doesn't like when I ask her if she has to pee. Every time, she says no. Sometimes, 1 minute later, she jumps up and says"I have to go pee pee." It's like it needs to be her idea. I need to let her take the lead now. So, last year, when she peed herself (short-lived underwear days), she said, "Why didn't you tell me I had to pee?"  Your daughter is just fine. And everyone will tell you, "She won't go to college in diapers."

My moms actually mentioned me getting her tested because she is very smart but doesnt talk well and she doesnt listen and idk she does seem like somethings not rite but it may be because my son was talking clear as day at a younger age. And when she gets in trouble i HATE to use this word. But she acts retarted when she gets in trouble she gets a mentally ill look on her face like sticks her tounge out and drools type thing and just acts like she doesnt understand whats going on. Ive never seen a kid act the way she does. And when she gets in trouble she thinks its funny until she gets a spanking then she does the face.

Hmmm, well, you could certainly talk to your daughter's pediatrician about this. He or she would be able to help. Maybe she's just fooling around making that face.  I think it would allay your fears to talk to a doctor.

It doesnt seem like fooling around :( she gets this look on her face like she doesnt understand what she did wrong but she knows it was wrong and like she doesnt know what to do next its hard to explain unless you see it.
