Is Your Child Ready for the Proper Potty Training?
Parents and children might find potty training terrifying or difficult to do. But the simple key to achieving proper potty training is knowing whether your child is ready for it. Studies show that most children are ready to begin toilet training between 24 to 27 months, but others may be ready either earlier or later than that. Our childcare services in South Carolina can fill you in with some tips regarding readiness for potty training.
So, what do you need to look for in your child’s behavior to know whether he or she is ready for toilet training? A desire for independence is the first marker. If you sense that your child enjoys learning new abilities and consistently wants to do things himself or herself, then your child is ready. Another marker is when your child usually imitates your actions. You should also be able to observe if his language skills are developed enough to communicate his needs and understand words about the toileting process. The child must also have learned basic motor skills that are necessary for walking to the potty, pulling down his pants, and getting on it on his own. Be observant as well on your child’s bladder storage – if he has long periods with a dry diaper, his bladder can store urine longer. This signifies that the time for switching to the potty from diapers has come. In our child development center, basic training will also be provided for children ready for the potty.
If your child is potty-trained, attending preschool won’t be that scary for them anymore as they are assured of their independence. Contact us at Creative Beginnings to know more about our day care in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina!
