Usually, the time period between eightieth and thirtieth month is seen as the ideal time period to start potty training for a child. However, first, you should be mindful to know if the child is in a suitable condition to use the potty or not. That is, you should first think about factors such as your child’s ability to inform you in some way that he has the need, to understand what you are saying, and to sit on the potty and to stand back up by himself. Likewise, you should be aware of whether or not the child can wear his underwear and lower it by himself. If your child’s responses for these are positive then your child is suitable for potty training. However, some children may not be suitable for this.

First lets potty train the child
First, place the potty in a place which is comfortable for the child. Give a simple explanation on how to use it by either keeping a doll on it. Direct him gradually to use the potty a few times a day. Even though female children use the potty for both passings of urine and faeces, male children can use the toilet if they want to pass urine. Even though it may seem unpleasant, make the activity of using the potty enjoyable by giving the child something he likes when he uses the potty. Likewise, give them an understanding of cleanliness from the time they are potty training. Even if there is nothing on their hands train the child to wash his hands after using the potty. The child will then understand from a small age that after using the toilet the hands should be cleaned. Especially when female children pass urine wash that area with water.
