      Thank you so much for appreciating and blessings are the best gift always. I will be really happy if my post can help moms because as a mom I understand what parents go through when toilet training their kids due to societal pressure. 🙂

    For 2 months I tried tirelessly to train my child to pee and poo. I got tired when he was not understanding and I decided to try again in the coming few months. But one fine day he followed me to the loo (a mother is never alone) asked what I was doing and started peeing only in the bathroom soon. Today it’s over 9 months now with 1 accident alone. Our poo and night time story was also child-led diaper free. So, I agree with you Arushi from my experience that kids would learn with the right time at any age.

      I know it gets tiring and frustrating when you keep trying and the child does not understand. I think its the pressure which gets on to both the parent and the child. With my daughter I have seen, when she wants to do something there is no issue at all else its like a battle. Thank you for reading. Btw i loved your posts on the evolution of parenting and it takes a village. 🙂

    Toilet training is very crucial and the procedure varies from mother to mother. My son was poop trained pretty early but the pee training happened almost a year later. Different kids and different problems. Loved your tips. they are practical and realistic.

    These are some excellent tips that will be very helpful for parents who will start to potty train their little ones. As a mum to twins, I resorted to just plonking them on the pot till they did their job! I am so glad that phase is far behind me.

      It is a relief when the phase is over. Its nice your twins were ok with you plonking them on the pot. Mine would just keep shouting till the day she decided it was a good thing.. Thanks for reading. 🙂

    Interesting article. My son was potty trainrd recently at 3. 5 yrs. I think the most important factor for a parent is to understand that each child is different and meets benchmarks when they are ready instead of pushing them towards things. You have highlighted that quite well in the article.

    It needs patience and one should wait till 2 Years of age to get thier child trained properly.

      Yes, I agree. starting at 2 and then taking the clue from the child is the best way to do it.

    My son is 17 months and he indicates us when he wants to poop, we are living diaper free at home since he is 8 months and gradually moving towards pee training.. but I really liked all your suggestions especially to have patience .. I in my childhood have seen many aunties hitting their child for peeing or pooping in social gatherings, that was really sad.

    These are some wonderful tips. I started potty training my son after his first birthday but realized that he wasn’t ready. When he turned two, I started the training again, and he got potty trained within a few weeks. You are absolutely right, once they start understanding, they can be easily trained.
