When to potty train.

Postby Jerlene » August 4th, 2012, 11:53 pm

If you have a child and you've already passed the potty training stage, how old were they? How long did it take them to be fully trained?

I have a three year old niece who tried the whole training thing and failed. Her parents are too lazy to be consistent and this has caused her to be a bed wetter. They rather change underwear than diapers.

I would try to get them started with potty training by age two. I started around this age and it took me a year, if I recall.

As far as her parents are concerned, it is a real shame. Lazy parents can have a terrible effect on children.

You have to potty train when the child is ready. But just because a child is a bed wetter does not mean that they are not potty trained. There may be some other issues there.
