Feeling Patient, Mom & Dad? Then You May Be Ready for Potty Training!

Though it’s important for your kids to be ready for potty training, it’s equally important that parents are ready for the potty training process. This is no easy task. It’s time consuming and truly alters your life for a while. You’ll know you’re ready when you can devote up to three months of daily encouragement to your little one who is trying to learn to use the potty. 

Every child is different, so be ready for a variety of experiences and don't expect a child to train in the same length of time as a sibling. The most important ingredient? Lots of patience from Mom and Dad!
