Potty training is a daily life skill, that also assists in your child developing independence and self-care skills. In addition, this is an extremely important milestone to achieve if you want to enroll your child in a preschool. Almost all preschools require children to be toilet trained by the age of 3.
It is important to know that there is not a specific age that all children should be potty trained by. All kids are ready at different times and sometimes children take a little longer than others to master it. For parents of little boys, they tend to be ready at a later age and it can take them longer to develop the skills (while sometimes it can be difficult, try your best to not compare to others). Rather than use a specific age as an indicator, you should look for signs to see when your child is ready.
A very common misconception is that potty training can occur from one day to the next. Before beginning the potty training process, it is extremely important to prepare by making sure your child understands the concept of going to the bathroom and everything involved within it.
