Are you wondering about when is the right time to potty train your child? Do not have any idea of how to begin or when to begin? Many parents would consider potty training to be a very daunting task most especially for those who are first timers. When it comes to potty training, there are many factors that are involved but once your child is ready to start the transition from diapers to a fully potty trained; your patience and effort will definitely pay off.


Follow these tips and you will be able to go from diapers to dry in just a few days:

First and foremost, you have to evaluate the readiness of your child. Does your kid have the needed verbal understanding? This will include being able to comprehend simple instructions. See to it that your kid is physically and developmentally ready for potty training. There is really no specific age that is required for all toddlers.

However, you can start potty training boys between the ages of 18 to 27 months. You need to be observant to see if they are ready or not. Once they are ready, the next step is the actual act of getting the child to use the toilet. It is very important to start off slowly. It is vital to have the child out of diapers and in underpants since it will enable them to feel the physical sensation that is associated with having an accident.

This means that if they have an accident, they will feel cold or wet. They will start to associate the feeling of an accident with going to the bathroom and they will be able to communicate with you whenever they have to go to the toilet. Setting a schedule for going into the bathroom is also important.

Take your child into the bathroom every hour and just let them sit on the toilet for a minute or two. This way, they will become familiar with the sensations that are associated in using the toilet. Eventually, the frequent trips to the bathroom will be lessened. However, it is essential that you will be consistent with your child’s visits to the bathroom.
Children are natural copycats and you can consider this as an advantage. You can provide models for your child and point out that his favorite “buddy” goes potty. You can also read books like Everyone Poops that highlights the child going potty. This can visualize your child seeing himself going potty.

How to potty train a boy is not an easy task and there are no little success, each attempt are successful regardless they are absolute or not. Accidents can happen and you must see to it that the child is not saddened in themselves when they are having an accident. Be sure that you encourage each attempt since disappointments often leads to regression and that is definitely something that you would like to avoid.
