Early vs Late Potty Training
Many doctors and psychologists will tell you to not potty train until your child is 3 or 4 years old. Some even say to not potty train the child at all; that they will potty train themselves when they are ready which they say is between the age of 4 and 5 years old. I personally don't know how and where they got their statistics because I have found the exact opposite.
Through my many years of potty training, I have found that parents who start introducing the idea of potty training to their children at a very young age have faster and easier success then those parents who wait until the child is much older.
Children who are younger are more impressionable, and they are not set in their ways. The closer to the age of three that a child gets, the more set in their ways they get. They become comfortable in their diaper and in how they do things.
The older the child gets, the harder and longer it takes parents to get their child potty trained. Children at this age know how to control the situation and they use their control. They are also very comfortable with the way things are so getting them to change is hard.
I have found that most children at the age of 22 months old are ready to potty train and can be trained in as little as three days. At EasyPottyTraining.com you can find a potty training guide that gives a fail proof test to test the readiness of your little one. If your little one can pass this easy test then they are ready to be potty trained.
Why wait for a child to reach the age of 4? Why make it harder on you later? Why change diapers for another two years?
Is your child already 3 or 4 years old? Well the good news is that it's not too late. You too can potty train in as little as three days. You might have a little more of a fight on your hands but it can be done!
Now, I'm not a doctor or a psychologist, but I am a mother of 6 kids and I have had 8 foster kids. I have also successfully helped in potty training over 2100 children from around the world.
I personally feel I'm an expert in Potty Training. So in my "expert" opinion, I believe that if you potty train early, you will have faster and easier success.
