Observe your child’s behavior. If you look closely enough, your child is likely to give you tell-tale signs to suggest he/she is ready to begin using the potty. Remember that all children do not develop at the same rate.
There are many questions you can ask as you observe your child. If you answer “yes” to a few of the questions, your child may be ready to potty train! The questions are posted on the next slide.
When your child shows signs of being ready, figure out which potty seat best works for your child. Many different seats are available, and the comfort of your child is important for his or her success.
Allow the child to make the seat his or her own!
Decorating, unwrapping, and/or placing it in the bathroom may make the child very excited about using his/her very own potty seat.
