I’m currently in the throes (kinda) of potty training my second child. I have found potty training to be a pseudo-hot topic among moms. Not at the level of breast-vs-bottle or co-sleeping, but most seem to have strong opinions about it.
To give you an idea of where I stand on the “How to Potty Train a Child” spectrum, here are my general beliefs:My Thoughts on Potty Training
- Potty training is 100% child-led
- A child needs to care about being wet or dirty before potty training can be successful
- Parents who need to initiate the majority of toilet-sitting sessions in order for accidents to be avoided, cannot consider their child to be “fully trained”
