ITS TIME TO POTTY TRAIN

I always thought what is the correct time to potty train my son.Being in US this question has always been in back of my mind.In India and other Asian country's children get potty trained very fast compared to here in America .so as i was surfing the net to get an answer for my question i read so many articles which were very usefull and i have successfully potty trained my son before 2 but i still put him diapers because i am scared of accidents.

Some children show readiness for toilet training between 18 and 24 months. This should not be confused with the achievement of toilet training, which may not occur until the child is between two-and-a-half to four years of age.

You may already have a potty in the bathroom and you both may have names for urine and stools. Your toddler may let you know he is dirty or wet, indicating a desire to have his diaper changed. Toilet training requires a combination of physical and mental developmental skills, which must be mastered before training can be successful. Here are some tips to get you and your toddler started:

How Do I Know if My Child Is Ready?
Your child should be able to walk well and be able to climb up and down from the potty unassisted. Your child must also be able to recognize when he has the urge to urinate or defecate (“signaling abilities.”) Your child then must be able to verbalize that urge.
Other signs of readiness include dry nap periods, grunting or straining after meals, asking to have diapers changed after a bowel movement, or telling you she has had a bowel movement. This is a sign that she can recognize the signals.

When Is a Bad Time to Start?
Try not to start toilet training during any type of upheaval in the child’s world - for example, the move to a new home, the birth of a new baby, divorce or illness.

When is a Good Time to Start?
Remember, toilet training requires a combination of physical and mental developmental skills, which must be acquired before training can be successful. Your child must have the physical ability to hold urine and stool and must be able to recognize the urge to go. He should be able to pull his pants down and sit on the potty by himself. He should be able to verbalize when he needs to use the potty.
